"Postmodernisms" -or- "They Stole The Meanings To My Words"



We live in a world where they've stolen my language and twisted it. I want it back and I want it straightened out too. I want truth to mean truth, and light to mean light again.

Just like George Orwell penned in his novel 1984, words have been perverted and deconstructed only to be reconstructed to mean something they don't mean.

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
Black is White and White is Black
...but only when "they" say so.

Love used to mean something sacred not sex.

Hate use to have a purposeful but negative connotation not just a word that that people tossed at others because you didn't like their view.

Differing opinions were differing opinions not "hate speech"

Liberal and liberation used to mean freedom not oppression.

Believing in something was conviction and you were willing to stand behind that conviction and back it up with words and actions if need be.

There was only one absolute truth, now everyone is correct.

There was only one truth not a construct of the state or society's leaders, privileged classes, and institutions of power to manipulate the masses.

Laws were based on inalienable rights given to us by God not based on case law and decisions handed down by other judges based in their opinions and their capriciousness.

Inclusive meant including someone or something not excluding them because they don't agree with you.

Where sin was called sin not pro-choice, tolerance or an alternative lifestyle.

Where tolerance was a form of forgiveness and not an excuse for ignoring blatantly obvious sin or ignoring people that chose to live immoral lives.

Where diversity was a strength and enriched culture not an excuse to give certain people unfair advantages and the right to discriminate against a host culture or the majority.

Gender was determined by your genes and chromosomes not your opinions or perception of reality or based in a social construct.

That terminologies or words themselves were interpreted not deconstructed. That words themselves have actual and absolute meanings in their context and that there was a single authorial intent when they are/were written not a myriad of possible interpretations.

People use to be called men and women not human resources.

Where you were sexually promiscuous or sexually immoral not sexually active.

Where criminals were called criminals not behaviorally disadvantaged.

Illegal Aliens were people in a country illegally not Undocumented Workers.

The list goes on but my patience for deliberate disinformation does not. When you cannot pinpoint through terminologies or words what something is or isn't you cannot identify it. If you cannot identify you cannot say with certitude what is right or wrong. If nothing can be determined to be right or wrong than chaos ensues.

Isaiah 5:20-22 ~ Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
