Winners and losers are also found in the novel, All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque, the winners are those who have been placed into high ranking positions because they do not have to fight the war, whereas the common soldiers are the losers because they must face death everyday in the fight for survival. Being a winner or loser is not a choice that you can make, because you can be a winner in comparison to one person but a loser in comparison to another. Whether you are born smart or dumb, rich or poor or whether you are the hunter or the prey, you are still a winner or a loser because it is all part of how the world is.
