In my initial post on this thread, I said we were going to be hearing a lot more about this. I'm not so much being a cheerleader for GB (as many know in the past the guy has frustrated the hell out of me) as I am being a cheerleader for the people behind the Overton Window theory. As I also mentioned, I'm very involved with the Mackinac Center and I have, over the past year, gotten to know who is behind this organization. I've met with them numerous times and have actually spoken at the same economic policy meetings as some of those who are behind the Overton Window methodology. Not only do I believe in what the Mackinac Center is doing, I think this strategy is a KEY that everyone MUST learn if we hope to truly change things.|
Glenn Beck - The Overton Window.
Today on Glenn Beck's talk radio show he talked about The Overton Window video trailer that you'll find posted below. It is a very impressive trailer, and it really makes one want to read Glenn's new book, which comes out next week.
But before we go into that, here's the publisher's description of the book:
The Overton Window
A Thriller by Glenn Beck
A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed . . . can it be stopped?
There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.
For Noah Gardner, a twenty something public relations executive, it's safe to say that political theory is the furthest thing from his mind. Smart, single, handsome and insulated from the world's problems by the wealth and power of his father, Noah is far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.
But all of that changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a woman who is consumed by the knowledge that the America we know is about to be lost forever. She and her group of patriots have vowed to remember the past and fight for the future—but Noah, convinced they're just a bunch of freaky conspiracy-theorists, isn't interested in lending his considerable skills to their cause.
And then the world changes.
An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don't know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact—or, more importantly, which side to fight for.
But for Noah, the choice is clear: Exposing the plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the woman he loves and the individual freedoms he once took for granted.
After five back-to-back #1 New York Times bestsellers, national radio andFox News television host Glenn Beck has delivered a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that seamlessly weaves together American history, frightening facts about our present condition, and a heart-stopping plot.
