An antidote to the abuse of ‘language’

There are times when I simply want to scream, when I hear terms like ‘liberty’ and ‘peace’ being so abused by those who would see most of us not really have them.  Or when they justify things that have been adjudged ‘torture’ as centuries in hundreds of courts of law — by saying "we don’t torture, so whatever we do isn’t that."

Ah, language.  My lover, my whore…  A bit of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, by way of a YouTube I first saw posted by Chris in Paris over at Americablog.  It’s well worth the time, and laugh out loud funny.  It’s all about Language!
