Maybe. I simply cannot understand why one would use this word 'against'. The em-energy flows almost instantly down through/along both wires to the load, and energy is consumed. This energy is needed to move the electrons (through the conductor and it's resistivity). The voltage makes the carge flow, so how can it flow/move 'against' it at the same time. Is the voltage making the flow and slowing it down at the same time? This makes no sense to me.
