Mere Words

Sometimes one finds the Alinskyite philosophy in places you don't expect.

That's why the deconstructionist has an obsession with power. Mao Tse Tung was a deconstructionist. One of his famous sayings: "We will conquer the world because you fools think that words are labels that are properly or improperly pasted onto things. We know that words are little dynamite sticks in people's minds, and we hold the fuse." That's the most complete form of scepticism.

IOW, there is no real meaning to 'words,' except as they can and will motivate the masses to do what the word-smiths want them to do.

HopenChange, indeed.

Or "death taxes" or "death panels" or "obamacare".

Those words were directed to you and your type. Stop projecting and that will clear up for you.

Irony at its finest, anon 12:28 a.m.! How about admitting that BOTH sides project AND use Alinskyite philosophy, rather than finger point?

So Anony, you think it would be useful to point out these projections and tactics when they happen, on both sides? Such thoughts will get you labelled as a crank in places like this.
