Most people hate confrontation. But given that “politics is people”, and about people agreeing and disagreeing, effective participation in our political system will inevitably call for confrontation. Bank on it.
In many cases, people are quick to compromise away principle just to avoid having a confrontation. And others may have intially got in to politics as "hard chargers”, with a mind to reform the system or address certain issues, only to find that their determination gradually wanes because of the sluggishness of the process. Before they realize it, they become co-opted into the system and are ready to compromise before negotiating even begins.
The most effective confrontation is persistent confrontation.
