Rephrasing your point: By damaging some other people more than it damages you, the system may hand you a relative advantage over people who are hit more badly than you, even as it hurts you in absolute terms.

This is not a compelling argument that the system has any value. "Sure, it's destroying value at our company, but that's fine because it's destroying even more value across the street!"
