He who controls the language controls the culture. I forget who said that but I find it is true. Remember words like choice and gay and their meaning fifty years ago and compared to today. When the start going after the words they are controlling you and changing the meaning of the words to their meaning as a way of brainwashing.

It reminds me of when PETA tried to get rid of all proper names like Fishkill and Catskill. You idiots, ‘kill’ is an old word for ‘stream’. It just shows their ignorance.
