Winning against is a form of conquest in which a person will try to social climb in a group using strategies that are harmful to the group, that don’t create value for the group but only for themselves. One step back from terrorism they risk the survival of the group by demanding more than they have contributed to the group, and more than can be sustainably afforded by the group. They enter into relationship with the group with the expectation that they will come away increased in value without feeling that they need to contribute something equitable to the group. They only engage in win/lose behaviors in the group, not win/win endeavors for the group. This is essentially an act of theft since any act of theft in an economy decreases the value of all of the money in that economy proportionately. This usually has to do with an attempt to increase one’s stature in the group without having earned that stature through hard work and sacrifice. They didn’t take down the biggest game, but they wait until the big dog is weak and attack him opportunisticly.
