How to proceed? Logically, first cutting the meaningless words. Then they are replaced – fine, educated – with some sensible ones.
Hello, bad word “unemployment”. That bothers everyone. It’s not pretty and it doesn’t sound good. It doesn’t help us at all. What is the unemployed? A man who lost his job, who is now researching the labor market. So he’s a researcher. (Sometimes he’s an archeologist, when he digs for something that hasn’t been searched for a long time).
If we take it upstream of the dex, we immediately find another senseless word: poverty. What does “poverty” mean? It’s downright offensive. It’s de-fe-tist. It’s all right. It can easily be replaced by “malignant wealth”, that is, an acute form of wealth, obtained as a result of the inflation that figs the currency in circulation. But inflation is not exactly a fair word either. Let’s try a euphemism: not exactly positive appreciation. It sounds scientific enough to pass the ear pleasantly.
Another senseless word: hunger. This, used by non-specialists, produces panic. But if we say “hypocalorism”, it’s suddenly completely different. It induces the one who would complain a feeling of guilt and the obligation to ask for forgiveness. As with any “ism”.
Let’s take the phrase “protest rallies”. It’s nonsense. Do some people agree to meet in the street to express their… (ridiculous!)… disagreement? Why so much trouble? Why wouldn’t their rally be quiet? Why wouldn’t they find – if they still tried to set up – some more realistic reproaches? Like the Executive is working too much. That we have a President we don’t deserve. We replace it with “protext rally”: we gathered in the street to express our spontaneous adherence to the last Government Decision.
I will upset the politicians in power, but I have to pronounce it: disaster. I don’t know how it got lost in the dictionary. This should be prohibited by law. And not the word, but its explanation. A “disaster” can be nothing but a disused star. This can evoke the most compassion, although it is known that when a star disappears, another star rises. So not “disaster”, but “recovery”. How do we use it in a sentence? We do not say “we are in a period of disaster”, but “we are in a period of recovery”.
