Here is the scenario, please go as much into the philosophical reasons for your choice as possible:

Let's say that a policy decision is in front of you. Saying yes to this policy will improve the status quo, but saying yes to the policy will take society further from your ideal vision. Should you prioritize your vision which may never happen or the gaurunteed improvement upon the status quo?

According to any given person, their views do advance the status quo. So, I would say both.

What if you can't have both? I think a single payer system is better than the status quo, and also that the beat possible policies would be completely libertarian there would be laws that allowed for tons of competition. Now a single payer simultaneously improves the status quo while also taking us further from a system that is better than both the status quo and the proposed improvement upon the status quo

If I couldn't have both, then I would pursue the decision that would change the status quo, not advance it. But you see, according to my views, I am advancing the status quo, so really, no matter what decision I make, I am advancing the status quo.
