Why should they be offered anything? They have power that is tremendously out of proportion, and thereby get to be part of a minority bloc that dominates the majority.

What you're asking is akin to saying "what should we offer the white ruling class in South Africa to incentivize them to go along with your case for changing the agreement on apartheid?" or "what should we offer the slave owners to incentivize them to go along with abolition?"

It shouldn't matter what they think, and we shouldn't have to make a deal with the devil in order to do the right thing.
