    Default The Orwellian destruction of language is happening right now

    I expect this goes beyond the English language and into other countries but I don't know.

    Not there.

    Political correctness and what the liberals (globalists) are foisting upon us (particularly in the school system) is getting crazy.

    Good vid (not long).

    Any thoughts???

    We're socially engineering generations of mentally neutered, entitled, self-centered adult children who can only get angry at inconsequential bull**** instead of critically thinking about what's really wrong with the world happening all around them. Part of this includes the PC destruction of language for not being "inclusive" enough, turning otherwise harmless words into weapons of mass distraction. The entire reason for Orwell's destruction of language was to literally narrow the person's ability to think certain thoughts. It's beyond thought crime, and it's happening right here, right now. Doesn't matter what year your calendar says, it's 1984.

    I saw this following news item (not the same article) some time back, and as a mother and educator, was a bit shocked:

    Quote Education
    Prof Bans Students From Saying ‘Husband’ Or ‘Wife’ Because It’s Not ‘Inclusive’

    Photo of Peter Hasson
    Peter Hasson

    In just the latest instance of taxpayer-funded censorship, students in one University of Florida course have been banned from using words such as “husband,” “wife,” “mom,” or dad” in the classroom and risk losing points off their grade if they don’t comply.

    In the syllabus for her “Creativity In Context” class — a required course for any student pursuing a minor in Innovation — UF professor Jennifer Lee informs students of her four paragraph long classroom “communications policy” that she says will enforce “ethical conduct” in the classroom.

    “The following policies and guidelines will be followed in this course,” the policy begins, followed by a bullet point instructing students to “Use inclusive language.” The policy mandates that students “[s]peak in a way that does not make assumptions about others based on “norms”, stereotypes, or one’s own identity or experience.”

    The syllabus explains that this means replacing the words “boyfriend”/”girlfriend” with the more inclusive “partner” or “significant other.” The rule applies to conversations about married couples too: saying “husband” or “wife” is forbidden. Even the words “mom” and “dad” have a more “inclusive” alternative — students are told to use the word ‘family” instead.

    Very much so in Germany and Austria (maybe in the latter even more so). One variant is the so called "Binnen-I", which changes a word that normally would be masculine, like "Studenten" (plural of "Student") into "StudentInnen" (which is supposed to include both sexes).
    There's even a firefox plugin to remove the "Binnen-I" from website texts, because it is incredibly irritating to read such texts: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefo...nen-i-be-gone/

    However, when talking about newspeak in general, I think that we already (for a very long time) are using "newspeakified" languages. Compare the modern western languages to old languages like Latin, Sanskrit or Hebrew and you'll see what I mean.

    Hey Calz,

    I have always imagined this as being a global phenomena, but perhaps I am wrong.

    Here in Australia, husband, wife, boyfriend and girlfriend as are good as terms of the past: have been for many years, especially amongst the younger generation. In their place...

    PARTNER

    That word is so sterile and smacks of a lack of commitment in a relationship, which is pretty much the case. One's partner is, in a fashion, relegated to the status of a convenience item, and again, that's pretty much the case.

    Tony.

    You're very welcome, Calz.
    I agree, pulling together globally would be a good idea. United we stand - divided we fall.

    Repurposing an infamous quote, I'd say: "Give me the power over language and eventually I will not have to care about what people think, for they will only be able to think what I allow them to think."
    This, of course, is the very idea behind newspeak.

    As for the re-gendering of language, I'm pretty confident it has to do with the intentional perversion (I use this word here in the older, non sexualised meaning) of the sexes. Females should become males and vice versa, implying that anybody can do anything, regardless of sex/gender. Superficially this sounds very good of course, because everbody should be equal, right?
    As males have their strengths and weaknesses, so do females. Problem is, a male will never be the better woman, and a female will never be the better man. It's like trying to make the anode the better cathode and vice versa. It doesn't make sense and weakens all involved parties.

    Thanks for that Video, Calz. Truthstream Media does some great stuff, very clever, intelligent, good with the video tools, editing, etc. They're a husband and wife team. Oops, did I say husband? Wife? Damn, sorry all... They're Partners, mere comrades who make videos together exposing the lies, hypocrisies and deceptions of modern society. They also sleep together and cook together and parent together (can you say Parent anymore?) and pay bills together.

    One good thing is that Melissa Click from Michigan, the "teacher" who tried to block the student media from filming a protest, has been fired. This is coming from the Universities here, where safe spaces and trigger warnings have become de rigueur. What all that is doing to this generation coming up is gelding them, both boys and girls if I might be permitted to put it as such. They are normalizing the narcissism of Petty Offenses and Vanillaizing the encounter with literature, with politics and with life itself. This would be hysterically funny were it not so potentially damaging to intellectual expression and exchange.

    WTF happened to this country's intellectual life? We used to blame dumbing down on the Right, now they're blaming it on the Left, since so many professors claim to be leftists. But it's beyond that. We used to have right wingers like William Buckley, Jr., lefties like Gore Vidal, wild men like Norman Mailer -- they would duke it out (mostly verbally) in public, on Dick Cavett's show often. Not only were they not afraid to offend, they sought to provoke, to shake, if necessary to Rattle!! There are many comedians now who are turning down gigs on college campuses because they're sick and tired of hearing these phony, childish, EMPTY criticisms-- not of the quality of their material but of certain words or ideas that irked and offended them.

    I love my girlfriend. I'm her boyfriend. Those two words are beautiful. Anyone of any age can and should joyfully say them. Boys. Girls. Mom. Dad. By slicing away at these words that define us gender wise or as family role, in an effort to "equalize" everyone and set no one apart or above others---they are also wounding the ultimate reality of our oneness and indivisibility. Because they are lessening our expression through language and reducing our capacity to think and feel and react in fresh, unstultified ways.

    The "system" has two legs: one left and one right. Because we're only looking at the feet, we don't see where the two legs are joined and that waaaaayyyy above it, there's a brain that tells the feet were to step next.

    I quit using gender biased pronouns years ago but that was my choice - it wasn't and still isn't easy. The only direct way is to use the plural form. So She and He are replaced by They. Her and his with Their. This doesn't work when referring to God. Can't call God They or God's love as Their love...

    Your vocabulary does control your thinking because the more words the more specific the inquiry. That's why scientists can't be understood sometimes when they get going. Their vocabulary outstrips our ability to comprehend their (not her or his) meaning.

    Censoring of words and phrases censors thought. I'm thinking of a very powerful lobby that has exerted a great deal of influence over our thoughts that has become engrained in our mode of behavior as one immediate example. But I wouldn't want to get them barking up our tree. They have more important things going on, what with the mounting threat of all its neighbors.

    Tolerance is very important in any society, especially a multi-cultural one like , well, like practically anywhere is now but more like Canada and the US have by reputation always been. Hate crime is unacceptable and Canada has fairly good laws in that area, don't know about the US - probably the same. Political correctness that is being forced on us now severs rational discussion by rational people because the topics cannot be broached let alone discussed.

    Gender bias is also a problem. Is the solution to never talk about it because we cannot have a discussion about girls and boys?

    Maybe the problem isn't the words, maybe it is the lack of responsibility and respect with which the words are used that causes trouble and offence. Maybe our kids should be taught manners and learn to see the perspective of others - by talking about those problems in a supportive and safe setting - with adult referees. That's what school is supposed to do, not make marketable assets out of us.

    Or maybe our overlords are androgynous.

    You and I had our fun frolicking back in the day.For better or worse??? I meant no harm to anyone and I don't think you did either.
    We certainly did have a chuckle, and good on us...so politically incorrect at times, and no, we meant no harm.

    People so easily cry harm these days.
    Oftentimes that is because they feel so wretched within themselves, and someone else has to be to blame. I mean, it must be someone else, as personal responsibility is fast becoming a thing of the past.

    I have not experienced anything remotely like the examples mentioned in this video. I swear if I did I would think I fell onto a parallel universe!

    It does ring of a progressive move towards some bizarre one world hive mentality that is being orchestrated behind the scenes.

    I am sure social media via smart phones and the like will accelerate this phenomenon.

    Oh definitely, though it has been, for me, mostly through a flood of news reports both local and national.! I've been fortunate not to witness the insanity first hand though it's only a matter of time until I do.

    It's an insidious march to sci-fi oblivion though it is not fiction we are reading but everyday life.

    It's as if separate categories of life are moving towards separate singularities and then all those separate singularities will merge into one great singularities. The last part happening the quickest and then who knows....another Big Bang?

    (just free thinking here)

    Analogy: The Fascist State. Gather up the sticks, lash them together, and they become a beam. Their collective strength is focused and controlled by the builder.
