  That is actually a good question.  First impression in draft form: It is
  not.  This is probably not entirely correct and may not remain with this
  view if you let me know in more detail what you have in mind.

  Random quote of the day, from watching a nature feature on TV as I wrote
  the above: "Unlike the Scottish wild cat, domesticated cats have the
  mentality of kittens.  Knowing exactly where the next meal comes from has
  removed their urgency in life."

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
