If we want things to be the way they are supposed to be, then we need to let everyone know that this is exactly what we expect! This is exactly what we demand. That nothing else will be acceptable!
When we think about the politics that define our common life together, we need to have great expectations - and we should expect that our great expectations will be fulfilled.
One more thing! We need to have great expectations of ourselves, too. That may be the most important part!
