Can Politics Be Productive and Positive?

When one looks around at the current political climate and culture, positivity and productivity are probably not the two words that come to mind. I believe, however, that individuals are the linchpin to instituting a new era of positive and productive politics in which people are informed, engaged, and empowered. That’s a large part of the reason we started OUTSET, and it’s the biggest belief behind a new video series that I’m co-hosting called Make Politics Positive.

In this week’s episode, I talk about the common misconceptions behind the terms, along with thoughts on how we can begin to transform politics in a better direction.
