"As a libertarian, I compromise a lot, in day-to-day life with people I deal with. It's fairly easy to do as long as others keep their hands off my life. Yet, the very nature of a statist makes it almost impossible for them to keep their 'hands,' in the form of 'laws,' to themselves. That is why compromise seems so difficult when a libertarian is trying to deal with a statist. All the 'compromise' that the statist proposes is about how much the statist will be violating the libertarian. That is not 'compromise,' that is losing ground that can't be regained." (02/19/11)
