Crushing Competition is the worst thing you can do in business.
The anthropological concept of evolution is that competition between organisms for available resources causes the stronger to survive. Stability is always opposed by competition. When a business achieves stability it will begin to stagnate. If a business crushes the competition it will become stable, stagnate and eventually die. For continuous growth businesses must encourage competition, even when that competition will slow growth or when that competition causes growth that exceeds comfort levels.
