Why you care: The use of framing (politics) is the only known way to deal with media imagery and misleading language that causes people to reach unwarranted conclusions. Without meaningful public consultation and more robust open government mechanisms, advocates and activists must learn how to create defense frames. See reframe:NB Power for a useful example of how to use attack frames and issue/position/argument/evidence/source/authority templates effectively. See attack frame for when you want to introduce not refute a position.

defense frame[edit]

A defense frame is used when political opponents have framed an issue in a way that puts the advocate at a disadvantage. To examine these frames and how they work against the public interest, to propose new frames that can be used to put the issue in a better light, the following template is useful:

= {title} =

== the problem ==

{State the problem, giving examples from the MSM if possible. Link to any websites

==realigning the frame==

{Explain how the issue should be reframed to our advantage.}

== {elaboration of the frames} ==

{Repeat this section as many times as needed to explore the frames introduced in the first

== examples of use ==

{Add examples of use. If there is current discussion of the issue in the MSM, add
references here that show how this frame would be used in that discussion.}

== responses ==

{List expected responses and how to deal with them in this section.  Use [[issue/position/argument]] structure if they are complex or involve deeper argument.  This section should be useful in debates to brief advocates.)

== publicizing the frame ==

{Add any examples of how to promote the frame and the issue. What would an
advertisement look like if it used the frames suggested?}

== other resources ==

{List resources that can be used to aid adoption of the position. Add URLs for any
helpful websites.}

==what progressives value and want==

<b>Resilience.</b> {State how this frame will support resilient and safer communities).
<b>Sustainability.</b> {State how this frame will support sustainability, including efficient use of materials and energy and minimizing use of transport.}
<b>Fairness.</b> {State how the frame will support fairness in society and address equity issues}
<b>Consistency.</b> {State how this frame will support consistency of the advocate's position.}


<b>Remember: </b>{Summarize this frame, emphasizing how this is the correct
position and how the particular values cited are correct values for society.}



The wikitext for frames can contain a limited set of HTML codes plus certain other characters or character sequences that provide additional functionality and formatting. The allowable HTML codes are show as icons above the source text field in the edit form.

You can use the following special codes for additional markups:

Headings: Put a sequence of one to five equal signs before and after text to make it a heading. A single equal sign is the highest level, two equal signs the next level, and so on. The templates contain examples.

Asterisks: An asterisk (*) at the start of a line will turn into a bullet to make a bullet point list. Use two to make an indented point in a sublist.

Number sign: A number sign (#) at the start of a line will turn into a numbered element in a list.

The pre.../pre tag pair (each in angle brackets) can be used to turn off formatting for a given part of the text and show it exactly as it appears in the wikitext, as was used in the templates above.
