Not so much opposite of demonisation but an aspect of 'play', in the meta-games of life & societies sense.
As children, we play with others as a way of learning how to be good at life by mutual negotiation of the 'rules' as it were, whether unspoken or openly communicated/taught. Children that learn to play with others by negotiated rules with other kids and not cheat and let other children win some of the time (I gather it is about 40%) are the kids that are invited back the most to play again and best socialised/well adjusted with other kids.
If a kid comes up with their own self-slanted rules of play/socialising/interacting that insists everyone else has to play whether they like those rules or not, are the kids that are ignored by other kids who go and find other players that will negotiate and the 'my rules only' kid gets known as being the 'weird kid' that nobody wants to play with
Well guess what? It's the same with adults! Except when you're a kid/teen, society and the world around you...
