The winner, the stronger one, is going to be the one getting the better food, better living conditions, the better mate. Those are the things they are competeing for. The winning dinosaur is now proven stronger; his offspring will have the advantages he has. It is survival of the fittest, and competition is what makes it happen.Without competition, the world would go nowhere. It is present today as much as it always has been, just different. Of course it can be seen in the animal kingdom, but it affects the human population just as greatly. IN order for our society to work, we need weaker (less competative) people to be in it. If the world were full of very competative people, everyone would be at eachothers throats. In fact, the world probably would have been blown away by a power - hungry idiot or three.
