Kill the competition
And buy yourself an ocean

from Muse – Animals Lyrics on Rap Genius


Dog Eat Dog World
In the capitalist society today, individualism conquers the necessities and priorities of the community as a whole. In the pursuit of money, greedy businessmen use cutthroat tactics to reach their end goals. Other people trying to make their way are shunned and pushed down. It’s a zero-sum game.

In David Mamet’s, Glengarry Glen Ross, the characters have a sales competition in which first place is a new Cadillac El Dorado, but third place is being fired. In order for the winner to get the new car, someone else has to lose his job. Rather than oppose the system, all members at the office fight like piranhas for the prize.
