“In game theory, the good player is the one who always supposes his opponent will discern the best strategy and who directs his own play accordingly; similarly, in the game of honour, challenge and pispote alike imply that each player chooses to play the game as well as he can while assuming that his adversary is capable of making the same choice.”
Bourdieu, Pierre. (2007). Outline of a Theory of Practice. UK: Cambridge University Press.
Bourdieu is clearly writting about overcoming our human role. We can make a stand when we decide being today better than yesterday. We can mesure our stands by other people if we are an ambitious thinker about their values and possibilities. But the greatest competition begins when our deed becomes to work for the common good.

    So good your speech about solidarity. Mutual support is the key for a better world.
    You're beautiful.
