So it occurred to me that words are machinery.
Language is the machine that propels ideas forward, and words are the moving parts. A carefully chosen word provides momentum for an idea to travel, while a poorly chosen word slows or impedes the transmission of the idea, and an incorrect word can alter the idea during transit.
So when some dipshit “progressive” changes the meaning of a word to suit their feelz, the machinery can’t properly perform its function anymore and begins breaking down.
Anyone heard of this idea previously? I’m sure I’m not the first to think of it.
Anyway, just a random thought. Have some music. It has words. About words.
