I feel you have to get rid of the negative first so you can work on the positive.

Yes Caloc I agree with you 100% on that. Getting rid of the negative will allow you to focus on the positive.

Default Every one builds...how well do they build?

I say build up, but build wisely...what you do will show eventually and it will be evaluated...

I'll go to the source....

Matthew 7:19
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Matthew 7:24–27
Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn't fall, for it was founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn't do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.

Secular version:
The sower may mistake and sow his peas crookedly; the peas make no mistake, but come up and show his line. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

So, the question came to mind...

When it comes to energy and time, do you think it's better to invest your time in tearing down the negative, or building up the positive?

This is a complex topic, but one I have asked myself often.

For example, would all the man hours used to try and dethrone these folks be better spent on helping people in need in their local communities?

Not asking this as a leading question. Simply tossing it out for discussion.
I do feel that they need to help their community. That is what is needed. Work on this and then work on getting out who you need to get out.

In surgery every healing process starts with a cut. Sometimes destruction is very well part of the solution for a problem.

here's the thing i have come to know. The strongest always wins. say there is 10 units of positive energy of a person against 100 units of negative energy. negativity wins here.

also like we recycle stuff, we have recycling machines, since it is about positivity and negativity to humans, a person is the best recycling machine of this energy.

so like building any muscle, to reach from 10 units of positive to 100 units to take down negative, a person might need to practice, work hard to get 11 then 12, then 13 and so on positive units. this might include taking shit and still keeping positive .. eventually one can become so damn strong that negativity won't stand a chance. he'll be lilke the master recycler.
