If you see a tall building, what do you think to yourself?

When you watch sports on TV, what do you think to yourself?

Have you ever watched The Oscars?

Do you have a job?

What is your favorite type of meat?

How many trophies do you own?

Do you think about poor people?

How do you know something is good?

How do you know if someone is good?

Final question: on a scale to 0 to 3, how would you rate this Olympic Podium?

You are a winner. You win. Win! Win! Win! Win!... Win!

You are a winner. You win. Win! Win! Win! Win!... Win!

OMG! You win so hard. And winning is good. Because it means you're more important than others. If a disaster came you should be allowed to be saved first because you are so valuable. Winning is the way our society create arbitrary hierarchies and it's so awesome because without them how would we be proven (through incredibly reliable criteria) that our parents were right and we were really really really important. So good job at winning and be happy that some people suck because if they didn't, you wouldn't win. Also scream "Yeah!" regularly.

Congrats on Your "Participation Medal"...

Congrats on Your "Participation Medal"...

Yay!... sigh.
Well we love hierarchy and we love to make some people more important but then we feel guilty when our owns don't get to be also winners. But it's ok because we came up with a totally paradoxical concept "The participation Medal". It's so that you don't feel bad about our abusive competitive system or at least we don't feel bad that we impose it on you. It's total BS though because we don't actually believe in it. We just want to clear our conscience but ultimately we don't value your stupid trophy at all. We just feel sorry for you.

You are not good enough.

You are not good enough.

So you're not good enough according to our very relevant criteria but don't feel bad. We wouldn't want that. We build a system that is based on abusive behaviors but we want you to be a good sport (for us mostly so we don't feel bad about our perpetuating of the capitalist terror show because it serves us). Oh yeah we love to have power and to tell people "My criteria are the most important ones". But anyway you don't really matter that much so please don't make a fuss and continue to revere us.

You don't seem to cooperate.

You don't seem to cooperate.

We don't know what to do with you. We kind of hope you will disappear. You're not cooperating to our love for hierarchy and we don't like that. In your stupid world view there is no way to know who is the best and who to value. How do we know what to "choose". And "choosing" is really important to us, we tell everyone that it is the essence of Freedom. So please go away, if not we might have to take drastic actions.
