Does the saying "nice guys finish last" encourage people to be mean and discourage people from being nice?

Many will rationalize cruelty any way they can.

The entire world runs on meanness. Mean people who dominate and control everyone and everything around them are the ones who usually end up becoming successful as well as filthy rich, while the victims of their bullying are seen as the losers and are lucky they don't end up hanging themselves. :x
