Whoever controls the language controls the debate.
Liberals have been good at language control. It’s not killing an unborn baby; it’s a woman’s “freedom of choice.” It’s not same-sex sexuality; it’s “gay rights.” It’s not governmental theft; it’s “fixing income inequality.” Social Security, Affordable Care Act, Department of Homeland Security, Patriot Act, all language control.
The list could go on, but you get the idea.
Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking Glass, understood the importance of controlling the language:
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t — till I tell you . . . . When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master — that’s all.”
Now we come to the new Royal Baby of Kate Middleton.
That’s what the media are calling the glob of tissue. For selling papers, magazines, and visits to websites in order to boost ad revenue, Kate must be pregnant with a baby.
Liberals can’t sell the story if it’s just a “fetus.”
