A message from the future with AOC
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken American politics by storm, by managing to be elected to Congress without using corporate funds, and once in maintaining the same hardline (common sense) stance on justice, climate, equality and anti-corruption as prior to being elected. She continue to fight hard battles, standing up inaction, traditionalism, corruption and the strange workings of the American political system in granting near immunity to the President, for the kind of behaviour others would be held to much higher standards on.
Her Green New Deal is making headlines and stirring up emotions on both sides of the fence, accused in equal parts of being pie in the sky and the bold, uncompromising rethink of modern society, capitalism and green politics we need.

A standout quote is “we can be whatever we have the courage to see”.
