I keep thinking about the dynamic in the
when Hamilton says to Burr
"If you stand for nothing, what will you fall for?"
It's good drama and a mic drop line and all, but is that statement substantive?
Do we always need to have a hard stand about everything?
Not knowing anything else about Burr outside the musical, wasn't he eventually vindicated by surviving and being elected as the Vice President?

@Obscurequokka Never seen the musical and I'm not into politics, this is just my opinion. It's almost impossible to have hard stances on every issue and can really just make it impossible for your political views to ever morph and adapt with you as you change as a person. I think it's significantly better to know what you agree and disagree with but also be open to the other side of the argument, and be able to acknowledge the validity in their opinion as well.
