Does imposing our will on another resolve anything?
I would have to say -- yes. I really think there are situations were it does resolve something. Those situations are very very rare and sometimes the resolution is of the 'least bad solution' type, but sometimes imposing our will on another keeps people from getting hurt.

Going past compromise to something better would be my choice.
Yes, when at all possible that is the preferred option. And it's also true, I'm sure, that some of the time when we think it isn't possible, it's because we haven't looked at the problem from the right angle yet, or understood the situation clearly enough.
