Where we need to find compromises is not only
in terms of policy, but in terms of values. And really instead of saying compromise, I
would talk about conversation. And people learning to listen to each other
across these very, very complicated divides. We don’t do enough of that: Listening without
judgement, without sarcasm or snark against other people, really trying to sympathize
with values that may be very different from one’s own, or that actually may not be that
different, but that might lead someone else to a different place. And I think that once we can have those conversations
there may be, well, lots, lots of room for compromise.
