I appreciate Veit Medick’s point in his Sept. 10 Other Views column, The problem with compromise. He claims that in his native Germany there are no real choices and thus reduced voter engagement and turnout. Then he says compromise rules in Germany, and the country is smoothly moving forward, the economy is solid and that other countries are studying its approach.
I would prefer that system to our own of often slanderous, unfounded personal attacks, lies, false dichotomies, the vilification of science and the use of religion to divide. All funded by great wads of mysterious cash from secret sources under the blind eyes of our Supreme Court.
Compromising in order to solve problems and make decisions sounds pretty wonderful.
