You Don’t Win; You Push

Thinking in dichotomous term of win and loss is a recipe for despair. If you pushed the body politic, no matter how lightly, it necessarily moved correspondingly to a different place than it would have been had you done nothing, even if the difference is not detectable. The overall result of everyone pushing in different directions is not your responsibility. The size of your push is.
