NOT persuasion

It’s easier to accept Yes than to overcome No. Libertarians need to excel at taking yes for an answer. There are roughly 64-million people who have already said yes to the basic libertarian philosophy. They call themselves libertarians, hold mostly libertarian positions, or both. But…

These libertarians are not active. They are dormant. Asleep.

We need to discover who these people are and recruit them to active participation. This will give us the resources we need for the more challenging task of persuading those who disagree. We call this strategy…

Discovery before persuasion.

Like “picking lower-hanging fruit” first, you want to start by finding, recruiting, and activating the people who already agree with you. Then use their support to expand your persuasive outreach later.
