Shock and Love is that progressive political policy which seeks to use instances of crisis to further the betterment of mankind. It differs from the conservative policy of Shock and Awe which seeks to use the same instances to further empower the already powerful and to curtail the self evident liberties of the masses.
With the lives of three hundred million Americans at stake, the Obama administration, in a classic example of Shock and Love, was able to use the panic created by the flu pandemic to force Senate Republicans to do the right thing and confirm Kathleen Sibelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services.
