http://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/orwell46.htm I read this in college and looked it up recently because I have always been concerned with how governments, religions and corporations have used language to manipulate people and modify their behavior. Indeed, the words for those three groups are a manipulation of sorts, as they are all part of the same thing and of each other. Give it a read and I'd be interested in your feedback on one of my pet peeves of our culture (humans, that is). It is also an attempt on my part to modify my and your language use and to inject another point of view on how we conduct ourselves on this board. Warning: It might change your understanding of how you view things, but don't blame me, I didn't write it!
