Bill Maher lists his 8 words (or phrases) people should stop redefining: hate, victim, hero, shame, violence, survivor, phobic, and white supremacy. I'll add a 9th: oppressor.
At 7:34 he says, "You can try to change reality by changing the words, but you can't. It just stops you from dealing with it."
Then he quotes one of "the bad guys" from Orwell's 1984: The whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought.
Yep! to both.
