    Nice. Well done. I'd like to suggest the paradigm shift books by Arthur Barker and Geoffrey Moore. Concepts in them are highly effective in changing worldviews.

    A key concept is that by far the most effective in transforming mindsets will be any among the most hardnosed of them who rationally chose to flip. Others will then feel comfortable to follow in droves.

    What to flip them to? A key reason the economy and stockmarket grow better under Democrats is they are inclusionary, and modern growth experience suggests that the more minds doing the creating and putting in new systems the better (Ayn Rand and Paul Ryan are not just a bit wrong, they are 180 degrees wrong.)

    Partyless inclusionary mutually supportive processes, with blue states sharing key knowhow with red states, would help them a lot more than than the hundreds of billions a year blue states send them annually via the federal revenue now.

    Best done from the grassroots up. Your nabe could be an exciting place! Good luck.
