    Don’t take this personally, because it’s pretty standard journalistic practice, but calling a policy “bold” is a trope I would very much like to see fall into the disrepute it so richly deserves.

    The word has positive connotations, so it comes off as praise, but ultimately it’s an empty applause light that sidesteps the crucial question of whether it’s a good policy. Plenty of terrible policies can be—and often are!—described as bold.

    The difference between “bold” and “extreme” seems to me to be largely, if not purely, emotive. Russell declension, you might call it.Report
