True. Actually, without ambition, there will be no progress and no bright future. Nevertheless, it should be justified and there is no such a thing as the end justifies the means.

Yeah. I don’t know much about the lawfulness of ambitions, but all ambitions are natural because embedded in human nature by Nature. Of course, it doesn’t mean that they must walk freely all-around unrestrained, but yet - we have what we have...

I agree on the matter that being ambitious is a good thing after all.
On the other hand, climbing through other's life and printing suffer and prejudice over other people is absolutely wrong.
