There's a road paved with good intentions. It leads to Hell, not Utopia. Utopia is nowhere; look it up.

Utopia is nowhere and "Social Justice" is Hell.

"When everything you have is provided by the State, you will easily come to hate anyone whose demands take priority over yours. They are not your competitors. They are your enemies. "

Whereas, with a business competitor, you may compete one day, and collaborate the next. They may be your supplier on one deal, and your customer on the next.

One company will amost certainly supply both you and your competitor at some point, and likewise your customer will almost certainly use both you and your competition at various points.

That tends to keep the competition in perspective; it's no longer zero-sum Hobbesianism.

There's a Russian proverb: Free cheese is only found in mousetraps.
