Compromise is defined by wikipedia:
To compromise is to make a deal between different parties where each party gives up part of their demand. In arguments, compromise is a concept of finding agreement through communication, through a mutual acceptance of terms—often involving variations from an original goal or desire. Extremism is often considered as antonym to compromise, which, depending on context, may be associated with concepts of balance, tolerance. In the negative connotation, compromise may be referred to as capitulation, referring to a “surrender” of objectives, principles, or material, in the process of negotiating an agreement. In human relationships “compromise” is frequently said to be an agreement that no party is happy with, this is because the parties involved often feel that they either gave away too much or that they received too little.
Compromise sounds good. Think again. It means one for me and one for you. What stupidity!
Government should be doing what is fair to all and what works. If government is not about this, then it becomes a mass battle to see who can control others. Fair and capable government would also mean that some individuals will be unhappy because they will not get what they want, but they will get what they deserve.
Currently, voters/citizens are concerned only with what they want, with no concern with what is fair. Fair is about opportunity and not about results.
So if the choice is between compromise and fairness; choose FAIRNESS.
The facts no one wants to read.
