Am I the only one here that is 'young' enough to remember 'NewSpeak'?
'Brave New World'
'The Lathe Of Heaven'
Words mean things people...Learn it...Know it...Live it...People have lived, fought wars, loved, and yes, died for words...
Take the example of this great experiment that we like to call the United States Of America...
Where would 'we' be without great words...The minds behind them...And our ability to convey those thoughts in order to better our standing as Men (generic 'man' meaning all members of our species, not just males)...
"I HAVE never met with a man, either in England or America, who hath not confessed his opinion, that a separation between the countries, would take place one time or other: And there is no instance, in which we have shewn less judgment, than in endeavouring to describe, what we call, the ripeness or fitness of the Continent for independance."
