The political left in the United States is often isolated from mainstream society. This is mostly because there is always resistance from elites when the status quo is challenged. However, the left also at times descends into sloganeering, without sufficient attention to its public image. My goal is to address this problem by showing that leftist politics is based on sound, democratic principles, leading to effective dialogue with non-leftists. Ultimately, the aim is to help make the left more practical, while helping non-leftists see how practical leftist ideas are.
