The hidden third party

We see things dualistically: us v them.
Our interests (goals) are disrupted (blocked) by another, creating a conflict. This friction creates an invisible but powerful third object: the problem.
We can choose to fight each other and empower "the problem" or ally against the problem by collaborating.
