It's Only Words...


I find it interesting, and often amusing, to see how certain words have become mis-interpreted or re-framed in order to label people in ways that make them seem for or against certain things, good or bad, right or wrong. 

What I find most amusing about it, from an objective point of view, is how often when one of these words is used,  if you applied the literal translation instead of the public interpretation, you'd find that the people speaking them actually do what they say they'll do.

Only what they count on is that you'll apply the public interpretation instead of the actual definition of the words and phrases. I suspect this list will grow.

anarchy - I think this is probably one of the most misunderstood words floating around. Always has been. We think that anarchy means chaos and disorder. The truth is, as described in the Bible, anarchy is a cultural or societal "agreement" to be responsible for one's own actions.

In other words, if we were all living by the Golden Rule, we would be living in anarchy, because there would be no need for law or government, just everyone doing the right thing, whatever it may be. Interestingly enough, for people looking for Christian relevance, anarchy is described as the state of humanity in Revelations as necessary before the second coming of Christ.

revisionist history - any account of international or domestic events which contradicts the Bush Administration's preferred public perception
tony blair - leader of England currently undergoing massive criticism and inquiry for having "exaggerated" and/or "cherry-picking" and/or "manufacturing evidence" in order to justify going to war in Iraq.
we know they had a weapons program - Ambiguous statement that is true, but doesn't reveal the fact that we didn't know what was going on at all when the Bush Administration declared war on Iraq. We do know they had a weapons program long ago. A political remark designed to humiliate opponents of the war when any WMD may be found, which will surprise none of the opponents.
