Competition can be good, Competition can be taken to far and be bad, both happen.

To think that competition is alway good is very dangerous.

Or to think choice is always a good thing.

It can be, sure. It would be impossible to make one drink that the entire world liked, so more choice is better.

For other things it can be worse. In the 80s and into the early 90s we had plenty of choice about OS and system. Then it became just DOS. I'd argue this made life better for gamers. Yes, the OS risked stagnation, but we no longer had to worry about Amiga getting a game our PC didn't. Everything was PC. Any game you wanted to play you could.
It was a benefit from lack of choice.

Sometimes, sometimes, those tradeoffs are worthwhile.
