A thread about moving the Overton Window:

The reason conservatives took control of government was through fear. Fear is the anticipation of negative consequences, activities, and thoughts.
The opposite of fear is hope: anticipation of good actions, policies, and change.
America lost hope because liberals stopped pushing policies that led to more hope and instead only tried to #resist policies from conservatives rooted in fear.
Today, progressives are working to end that. By supporting policies like #GreenNewDeal, #FJG, and #FreeCollegeForAll, they are allowing millennials and other forward thinking voters to grasp hope again.
In order for this to continue, we must stop falling for the politics of fear from both Republicans and Democrats. Republicans spread the fear of changing demographics while Democrats spread the fear of what Republicans will do so they can keep the Overton Window from moving left.
Both parties are corporate owned so they are vested in keeping the status quo. As we know with climate change, wealth inequity, and military interventions, this is not a sustainable course for our people, society, or planet.
So now is the time to push forward: support innovative ideas to save our environment, fight climate change, prevent military actions of imperialism, etc. through progressive policies that totally change the discourse!
