Harrison Bergeron Paragraph
No it would not be beneficial if society got rid of all competition, which really applies with sports. Sports is all about competition and someone trying to beat out someone for a higher ranking. But if we outlaw all competition from today’s society then a lot of sports would be very spiritless. For example, when I watch a football game I want to feel very anxious when my favorite team is down by one point and there’s only 10 seconds in the game. But without competition, the game would be tied from beginning to end; and in my opinion, that would be a very dead and prosaic game to watch. Removing all competition would also not be beneficial for as far as dancing goes. In the story Harrison Bergeron every single ballerinas was exactly the same and danced the same; which means no one could compete with another or show that they’re one of a kind. There’s a show called “So You Think You Can Dance” where contestants compete for the title of America’s best dancer, that show is very popular because it features intense competition between very talented dancers who must convince America that they’re better than any of the other competitors at multiple genres of dance. On the flip side there could be a positive part to ridding al competition from society, because if there was no competition at all, then there would most likely be less violence from what see in today’s society. For instance, it is not uncommon to see arguments and or fights, in today’s society, over a certain subject of interest. Such as two guys fighting over girl or two gangs fighting over territory, and list goes on and on. So overall, competition is needed in today’s society to help our country thrive and push people out of their comfort zone to make themselves better and smarter people.
