Use Your Words

Why does political debate not lead to better understanding?

© 2019 Julian S. Taylor

They build, and they destroy. They define concepts. Words construct our world.

Words birth revelations and revolutions. They redirect and revitalize ideas. Hearts are moved and minds are changed by words. The motive force behind words is meaning. It is meaning that distinguishes the word from noise.
