As everyone has his own truth, so everyone understands the compromise in their own way. It is better to be stubborn and bullshit - "cool" than to give each one? But on any steep there is always someone who will be cooler. It is more profitable to be selfish than an altruist. The consumer than the manufacturer. A vampire than a donor and so on. But such a trend will lead to war and who was the first will be the last. And everything will go in a new circle without changes for the better.
Therefore, a compromise should have a deeper explanation.
