How workable is it to have both cooperation and competition? This feels like the message inherent in current Establishment rhetoric that is embedded within capitalistic hierarchy. The oxymoron of urging competition and cooperation provides space for authority to lightly skip from one message to another in a way that confuses and controls. Competition is the message to explain free market principles within capitalism which itself is an oxymoron, proven by run-away inflation. Cooperation is the message of required patience by the public as hierarchy sends our manufacturing and good-paying jobs overseas for maximized profiteering.
