So many of the undesirable changes made in this country, have been a result of the way the language has been used, misused, twisted, changed and subverted. George Orwell, double-think, double-talk. We have difficulty communicating, because we differ in the intrepretation of words, which frequently carry different connotations to different persons.
For example, take the word “progressive,” an adjective with positive connotations, like making progress, moving forward. Conversely, it can be used to mean reform in Government, to totally change this country from a Republic with a Constitution, to a socialist, marxist, communist form of government, which is negative.
