the grey area

Overton window, also known as the window of discourse, is the range of ideas the public will accept.
You have to be willing to look at some dead babies being pulled out of rubble if you’re going to be ok with drone strikes. The horrors we champion in nationalistic fits of pride are killing innocents in droves, we are launching attacks and delivering misery in the middle east to the faceless nameless hordes which resemble a slow moving genocide over the last several decades. Yet, in the hazy shade of grey the status quo positions remain salient because the middle just drifted off into another digital alternate reality, too lazy to care about what their tax dollars are supporting.
