it's just overly-competitive individuals I can't stand.

I was skeptically listening 
to a retiring social researcher,

from the American Enterprise Institute;

An Institute

and thereby with less healthy resonant imagination
than more pathological dissonance.

But, I found...

vaguely sexist.

I would imagine Adam Smith's invisible cooperative economic
