Why not rather be wronged?

In 1 Cor 6 Paul says sharply:

The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?

Where is this spirit of deference? Why must we always have the last word or win the argument? Does our quest for victory show we are already defeated? Where is this spirit of deference?
