People complain that change isn’t happening. But when everyone has to choose a side to be on, of course there isn’t any change. Humans are forever separating themselves into categories. The most troubling being political parties. If you’re a republican you’re prolife, pro guns, and anti gay, and if you’re democratic you’re prochoice, anti guns, and pro gay. You couldn’t possibly be a democrat that is for gun rights and anti gay rights. No wonder nothing ever gets done. Political parties are more worried about the other wing not getting their way than working together to actually make a solution.
So why not drop the labels? Instead of having a political party fighting for power, have one political party working together to find solutions to problems. People will be set in their ways for a while, but if we take the labels away, more people will be able to truly fight for what they believe in rather than hiding behind the public transcript of what a republican or democrat should be. This would be the way to invoke change. The norm must be broken in order for change to actually happen.
