Rant: An Analogy Of Life & Sport

I don't know whether this analogy completely holds, but I think it Illustrates something the Left doesn't seem to understand.

Life in many ways is like sport. It's governed by a set of rules or customs that define the proper conduct for the game. If youattempt to break these rules and fail to get away with it, you'll find yourself prevented from playing. In life, we call this jail. Games are also engaged in competitively, just like life. In both sports and life, we find ourselves honoring achievement and striving to become better. Inequality is regarded as natural and those who claim victory are held in the highest regard. The problem begins when the losers blame the winners for their failure. They attempt to change the rules or customs of the game to makeit more difficult for some. Imagine a soccer game with one team having 8 players the other 11 or one team having no goal keeper. This iswhat modern societies do to those who are most successful. It's hard to see a tax rate that increases the more you earn as anything else. It's about time people learnt the simple truth that life is about the pursuit of excellence and those who treat life otherwise should know why they find themselves in their dismal position. It's not due to lack of better trainer or you're opponent being endowedwith superior genetics but you're lack of determination and will. The solution lies in an ethic of self-responsibility and having a understanding that if you don't compete you'll just get passed by.
