A Vision of Care

The one and only George Lakoff - always worth paying attention to. His recommendation: Oppose Trump's specter of "Authority" with a vision of "Care"...

"Fortunately, not all conservatives are total conservatives — by no means. Many are “moderate,” which means that they have some progressive views. Many conservatives show in-group care: care for their own church members, or military units, or community groups, or neighbors. When you talk with conservatives, as you should, find out where they express their care — what they are most proud of for helping others selflessly. And then keep talking with them about arenas where they are committed to a life of care. They are your fellow citizens after all."
