Priorities, Compromise, Community

The best person in the world–the strongest, most adept–could even nearly outdo ten well-trained, dedicated people, much less one hundred thereof.

There is no tool more potent than camaraderie.  However, camaraderie at any cost–commonly by corrupt compromise–is invariably ruinous: the desire to forge partnerships cannot sustainably supersede commitment to priorities.

The worst people in the world–the most reckless, most unreasonable–will often be found forging frivolous partnerships, whether directly or indirectly.  Thence unprincipled, venal politicians rot the very foundation of worthwhile community by destruction of others’ dedication and best-reasoned priorities, exchanging it for a pale pretense of community.  Unjust unity can never endure.
