Analysis and subversion of established ideologies and power systems. It is Political English.
This dialect of deception has contaminated thought and action that would otherwise challenge illegitimate power — both political and economic. This suppresses ideas despised by prevailing state or corporate powers, and amplifies establishment opinion.
The Anti-Language Political English relies on euphemisms to a great extent. A few glaring examples include: When a state conducts brutal and inhumane acts of torturesuch as rectal feeding, waterboarding, and sleep deprivation while projecting its moral superiority, it is called enhanced interrogation.
When the measurable geophysical phenomenon of global warming needs to be stripped of its potency to enact change, in part by challenging energy profiteers, it is blunted to climate change. When organized propaganda agencies, committed to the distortion of truth, engineering of consent, and suppression of dissent want to invent a respectable profession for their work, it is called public relations.
When investor rights need to be protected across the globe, stripping states of their sovereignty in favor of global capital while undermining markets, it is celebrated as free trade. When the Chamber of Commerce wants to present profiteers and wealth extractors as benevolent masters of societythey are called job creators.

This is by design. Once propaganda succeeds in deforming political identities, it creates a negative feedback loop — the people themselves begin to spread myths about their respective identities.
Motives for distortion Much has been written about the political origins of libertarianism, liberalism and conservatism.
Unfortunately, much is manipulated to fit evolving economic motives, such as consolidation of capitalmonopolization of resources and reliance on an imperialist foreign policy.
English cannot be used to justify these motives, lest intellectual, moral and legal bankruptcy be exposed.Language and Politics 1 Language and Politics 2 The Language of Politics ¾Politics is concerned with power: the power to make decisions, to control resources, to control other people’s behavior, and to.
