Zusammenfassung: 
Modern societies are characterized by group-based hierarchies. Similar to attackers, disadvantaged-group members wish to change the status quo; like defenders, advantaged-group members wish to protect it. However, the psychological arrays that are typical of disadvantaged-and advantaged-group members are opposite to those of attackers and defenders - suggesting that the Attacker-Defender Game does not capture the dynamics between advantaged and disadvantaged groups.
