[ Otto Scott ] This is the same step. It is not new, not new at all. It is the same step in every revolution. It begins with the misuse of language. It beings with changing terms (and) so disguising the purpose of the revolution and the goal of revolution. In the French Revolution they began with first eliminating the titles of courtesy, monsieur, madam and so forth. Then they eliminated the titles of nobility and they substituted citizen or its equivalent. Finally they eliminated the monarchy and the aristocracy all together and you had accompanying this changes in the French language. Words that became forbidden and words that became mandated.

Truth and Consequences
In any attempt at revolution step #1 is bastardizing the language so that it can conceal the ugliness of the Revolution and reveal the vile character of those who oppose the Revolution. “Sodomite,” becomes “Homosexual,” becomes “Gay.” “Christianity,” becomes “Christianism,” becomes “Bigotry.” “Perversion” becomes “Alternate liftestyles.” Theft is called “taxation” and “redistribution of wealth,” indoctrination is called “education and socialization training.” Most recently a Green New Deal is called “The Inflation Reduction Act.” We have gone so far down this rabbit hole that we no longer can even now use language to answer the question; “What is a Woman.”
Language, the original function which was to be that used to reveal the truth becomes a weapon in the service of concealing the truth.
The West is now far down the road of the bastardization of its language and only heaven sent Reformation can reverse the side.
