This paper enquires into the nature of competition and a concentration process, supporting it with the well-known examples of perfect competition, monopolistic competition, advertising competition, and, most importantly, refers to competition as a process of rivalry whereby ineffective competitors can be fast and easily legitimately eliminated, thereby not authorizing the observer to draw conclusions about a weakening of competition, as this constitutes its essence and goals, and not allowing the Darwinian analogies, as biological concepts are void in social sciences apart from the attractive expression of the survival of the fittest.
