Do what it takes

I take issue with one thing in this quote:

“Agree with Ocasio-Cortez’s solutions or not, it’s to her credit that, in such a short time, she has helped change the terms of the debate. “Radicalism pushes the bonds of what liberals will jump on board with,” Saikat Chakrabarti, the representative’s chief of staff, said. “Every major social movement has worked that way.”

Which is: I am not looking for “changing the terms of the debate”. I am looking for us to do what it takes. “Changing the terms of the debate” is what is done to take a slow walk toward some distant goal. We don’t have time for that.

I do love the title of the article, though. LOL
