Words to Retire

Conservatives (Republicans, right-wingers, whatever) should retire the word “socialism” for at least a decade.

Liberals (leftists, Democrats, whatever, I’ve had it with your minute shades of difference, people) should retire the word “fascism” for at least a decade.

Both sides use these words incorrectly and as a result never achieve anything good.

If you can’t make your argument without appealing to socialism / fascism, there’s something wrong with the argument.

When we teach students how to write, we tell them to use the context search in Word and delete all “basically, totally actually, like, very, so, and like totally.”

People should do the same with socialism and fascism. And communism, God.
