  •  "Compromise" with the slaveowner state elite (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    was tried repeatedly prior to 1860, with the same record of utter failure.    Eventually the Abolitionists appeared.

    "Compromise" with the King of France was tried repeatedly in 1789, until he started conspiring with foreigners to invade his own country.

    Compromise with this sort of rule-at-all-costs, no-compromise authoritarian is impossible and therefore undesirable; and usually the People eventually wake up to the fact.  I hope it happens sooner rather than later, as it's usually more peaceful if it happens earlier.

    Wisconsin is a good sign.  Finally Democrats in Wisconsin have (mostly) stopped "compromising" with the lunatics who've taken over the Republican Party and have started fighting on all fronts simultaneously.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
