The high cost of unity

When two or more parties with a common stake in something disagree, one of four things will happen.

  1. A leader will make a decision that everyone else chooses to live with.
  2. The minority party will walk away to do their own thing.
  3. The parties will fight until one side surrenders, leaves or dies.
  4. The parties will agree to a compromise.

Compromise is the oil that lubricates the engines of healthy marriages, healthy political systems, healthy religious systems and healthy partnerships of every kind. True unity demands compromise. Nothing less will do.
