Some people believe that we are all winners.
They are wrong. Some of us are winner, some of us are losers. This is a fact, but as such it does not preclude other facts which are just as relevant and perhaps even more true.
For example; even though there are both winners and losers in this world, we can still have win-win situations. In fact, I strongly endorse win-win situations, though not necessarily in the traditional meaning of the phrase.
A win-lose situation is suggestive of some sort of parity between winning and losing. An equal, and even, distribution of wins and losses between disparate members of society. I reject this win-lose philosophy as not only pernicious, but also bad. Society should not have an equal number of winners and losers, but an equal number of winners.
Most importantly, I believe that all of the winners should be me. I believe that I should not only win once, but also twice. This is the perfect definition of a win-win situation; a situation which confers on me a status unparalleled in modern society; that of being not only a winner, but also one who wins.
This is the type of win-win situation which is helpful, beneficial and provident. I endorse this type of win-win situation, and believe that all others should do the same.
I would consider that a win.
