The point of democracy is not to win, but to recognize we all disagree on some things, so to figure out how to live together despite the differences.

Is this view obvious to everyone and too obvious to say? I don’t think it’s deep, but I don’t remember hearing it said, not that I’d look for it. I can also imagine not many people not having thought this thought. I think many people would agree with it in principle but act differently.
