“Go is not a territory destroying game”

I saw this quote somewhere recently:

“Go is not a territory destroying game.” Writer goes on to say that building territory should be the focus.

I wonder. It seems to me that after the opening, I’m either trying to consolidate the territory I’ve made, or to destroy the excess territory that my opponent managed to grab. That second category seems a lot like “territory destroying games” to me.
