Compromise Creeps In

Most dwellings are atrocious. No one with the slightest taste wants aluminum siding on their house, but the pressure of money exerts force.

First they compromise and begin tolerating terrible siding.

Then, since compromise has established precedent, overtaking goals and standards, they keep compromising to get more of what they don't want.

They'll tolerate a tiny lot with insufficient buffer, their windows looking into their neighbor's home. They'll tolerate a house on a noisy street, assaulted by every car that drives by and airplanes flying overhead. They'll tolerate boring cookie-cutter construction with no style or character.

Standard houses are typically ugly, constructed of terrible materials, and placed atop one another like a pen of farm animals.

Similar tolerance for poorly conceived choices will appropriately match their inner lives.

You could always get an apartment and tolerate loud neighbors voraciously consuming entertainment, getting drunk, and cheering events on the screen.

There's no end to what you can foist upon someone to tolerate once you push good outcomes out of reach and coerce them to accept the inferior and inadequate.
