Participants are a select few, zealous disciples, self-selected for the narrowness of their aims. They are akin to professional athletes in this way. Is that you?
Or perhaps you mean you are an ardent faithful fan. Eagerly watching and cheering those on the field, hoping a dopamine rush will reward your fervor for the contest when your favored participants achieve victory for themselves. Is that what you mean?
Or yet again, maybe you are an acolyte, one of those who keep the things tidy and running smoothly and thus take pride in being one of them whom you serve. Is that who you are?
Perhaps I’ve missed something, so tell me, in what sense are you a capitalist?
