18. You need someone pushing for the extreme position, the other side does it constantly

Compromise means coming up somewhere in the middle, if you start already half way to the other side's position your final compromise will not be optimum.

At least that's the way I see it, if you want something reasonable as a final compromise you have to start out at least somewhat unreasonable.
