I would say this is a slight exaggeration, but there is a lot of truth in it. In one’s need to be “right” someone else must be wrong.

I stick with Oscar Hammerstein:
"You've got to be taught
Before it's too late,
Before you are six
Or seven or eight,
To hate all the people
Your relatives hate.
You've got to be carefully taught."

Sometimes, yes; sometimes, no. Maybe you didn't really mean to propose a complete dichotomy, but I couldn't tell from the sentence alone.
