The Struggle is Real

There are times I know I should be writing . S o I write and sometimes I will write focused on the keyboard not lookin g up - (yes I have poor typing skilss)- at the page and perhaps I will be surprised when I do look up and find a work that is amazing . I try not to punctuate and corrct my spelling or grammar and plow through as if I ha d just turned on the tap and am rinsing out my brain. What a wonderful ability we have withing us to be able to communicate in a kangagae that we all share and understand. But thee is a great deception among us where words that we all once agrreded meant the same to all of us have now many differen meanings and mean n the complete opposite of the original agreed upon eaning . This is a great destructive force among us. As we relate to each other aas humans our ability to reason must be firmly planted upon a common lexicon a language of shared meaning that relates enable s us to share ideas and moral logic and helps us to be compassionate to one another. So then it is a goo thing o be in agrremement with other sin the meaning and spelling of words . The speaker orwriter or communicator of today has to spend so much tiome defining geach wroda dn concept in order to have others follow along in theoir reasoning. The task complete thye must then and only then proceed to reason from the newly establishd foundation of understanding. The struggle is daily for the destructive force of the deceiver is always at work and relentless in the assaults upon our humanity . Let us double our efforts to communicate and resolve to one another that we will become the defenders of reason and understanding and language and commi to defining our terms our language our vocabulary our building blocka our ideas and our passions .
Today language struggle is like the child who loves to build with Legos and the parent dumps onto the floor every type of building block available, Conexs or an Erector set or some other Lincol Logs and various random building blokc . It is very difficult to connect these pieces to ona another unless you use all the same type of building block. expressing ideas and understanding in another language becomes easier once that language is understood and . yet when the words withing the language change meaning or become less effective in sharing and communicating we stumble and react with anger and hate instead of empathy and reason.
I commit this day to make clear the meaning of words and to defend the integrity of words we all currently understand and enjoy.
“A Shared Understanding of the meaning and use of words is essential for citizens to communicate. A Shared Understanding of beliefs about right and wrong is essential for citizens to share the same purpose so act as one creature. Hence a community(society) is a Shared Understanding, whose citizens' use of language is the exercise of its understanding, and whose behaviour is dictated by its citizens' beliefs about right and wrong.”
I generally agree with most of what I have read of this study except for P Atkinson’s understanding and usage of the word “Truth” in the section defining the new science of Philosophy
