Rhetoric matters and so does the narrative in political and media circles. Hateful words incite and spread hatred, divisive words beget division, and abusive words create abuse. The power of your words cannot be overstated.
Especially if you’re in power or count among the social influencers. Polarising language polarises societies. So don’t call me a snowflake if I want you to use politically correct language. After all, we do not want to MARGINALISE anyone.
The power of your words can cast people aside and treat them with disdain.
The power of your words can stir up violence.
The power of your words can make war.
if that’s what you choose.
So, do me a favour, use the power of your words to
unite and include.
