Words Poorly Used #71 — Compromise

Compromise always fails because self-perpetuating institutions always demand a place at the table where compromise is made, squeezing out unaffiliated individual people. Compromise thus is about the status quo and its preservation.  Pretending that these institutional tablegrabbers have interests consonant with real people is a deadly form of collective self-deception.
