Quite a remarkable process to look up and find the definition of various words in order to communicate better. Would be nice to have an agreed to definition so that we all can communicate appropriately. Wouldn’t it.
A man last named Cassette, said once, “As soon as certain words we all think are true are communicated the concrete melts into the abstract until none of us know what the hell we are talking about if we all do know the simple meaning of a word”
the act of including.
The fun part is that old dictionaries, hard bound ones, have simple definitions. The internet (which we now all use) has very new ones.
Wonder why they are new. So I looked into the dates the words were redefined.
In 2009 -16, these three words were redefined 5 times, on the internet under the dictionary website. In 2021 they were changed again.
If rules and definitions of exact terms can change without us noticing, without anyone calling bullshit or wanting to clarify the new meaning in day to day life we are all stuffed.
If someone changed the definition of a mile from 5280 feet to 5000 because the deem it better. I want you to let that sink in. if the masses or a leader can redefine basics without your consent or understanding than we are all stuffed.
If over night you lost 280 feet of your land and had to concede what would you do?
