They will tacitly and/or overtly draw prejudicial, arbitrary and/or capricious boundaries so as to exclude some of the following: 1. Racial groups and their experiences 2. Ethnic groups and their experiences 3. Religious groups and their experiences 4. Economic groups and their experiences 5. Educational level groups and their experiences 6. Religious scriptures and criticisms 7. Secular texts and criticisms Often combative and/or manipulative people win their battles by how they lay down tacit rules of engagement which are not obvious and may be accepted without understanding the implications of the acceptance. They handicap their opponents by excluding resources which might strengthen their opponents. There is no good reason for respecting or honoring combative and/or manipulative people who win their battles in the above exclusive ways. They are not interested in resolving conflicts; but rather in winning battles which settle nothing of importance. They alienate themselves from their victims, and pride themselves in that achievement; thinking themselves to be better than their victims. They are usually prejudiced, confused, ignorant and unable to learn from their own and others experiences. They do not merit respect, even though they make great efforts to appear respectable.
