Oppose: v. to conflict and/or compete against a subset(s)

If someone wants to do something and you don’t want them to do it then you are opposing them. This is what the essence of conflict is and there is also competing for the same goal(s) which is a form of opposition since you want possession of something which another party wants also.

When someone is pushing and you are pulling in the opposite direction then you are opposing them.

Language is also basically structured on an antonym for almost every word and opposition is basically institutionalized in the way that humans interact with one another. It recognizes the basic fact that almost anything that you may want to do there is probably someone whom you can find that wants to do the opposite of it sometimes or even always.

Human society is basically the struggle between opposing sides- the haves and the have nots. The have nots want what the haves have and the haves are reluctant to part with what they have.
