Window frame

I'd never come across the concept of the Overton Window before today, but I'm glad I did. If you want to think about the way some ideas are marginalised and some become unquestioned orthodoxy, you need the language to talk about it, so the Overton Window is a worthwhile addition to the lexicon.

Gleaned, approprately enough, from musings on the Occupy Wall Street protests.
