Back in the dark ages (the 1950’s) people compromised all the time. The Senate and Congress all tried to work together to establish fair laws. One side would give a little in order to gain most of their objectives, and the other side did the same.
What the heck happened?
No one seems capable of compromising anymore.
The gun nuts scream 2nd amendment and refuse to even consider rational discussions to find a path to change.
The religious right screams “persecution” when everyone refuses to believe exactly what they do.
The far left screams equality when what they really want is equity.
What ever happened to meeting in the middle?
It seems that compromise has become a dirty word.
It’s honestly too depressing to think about today.
