As stated in the above post, we need to explore for the sake of exploring. We don't want to become stagnate. And besides, we have a lot to gain from colonizing space -- mining asteroids/planets/etc, spreading out humanity to reduce the threat of overpopulation, etc.
A healthy bit of competition isn't something to be discouraged though.

CBS turned it into a making making scheme during the original movies.
