When all is competitive from school onwards...and some getting 'tick marks' and 'stars' for work done and the praising of John doing better than Paul often being the case...titters all round the class at the expense of the latter, then people later on, still having to compete in their arena and to avoid failure and embarrassment, on occasion feeling sympathy for each other, or maybe just a 'you scratch mine and I'll scratch yours' thing, is an inevitability, combined with the fact that some scholars have bought their PHd's or whatever, these setups keeps 'em all on their little toes to ensure their 'success' and an income. Divide, Rule and no ethics. Sad!
