LR Podcast, Episode #51: “War of Words”

The left's assault on the English language continues, most recently with their attempt to redefine the word "infrastructure". "Control the language and you control the debate," is an axiom in the worlds of politics, the law, and anywhere else where influencing thought is considered valuable. The left, being well aware of this has been working for decades redefining words. Terms like racist, fascist, and justice have been so far removed from their meanings as to become unrecognizable to those of us who know the original, correct definitions.

The Left’s Assault on the English Language Continues

The left, more specifically, Democrats on the left, wish us to conflate infrastructure with those things that infrastructure makes possible, cell phone use, your personal mode of transportation, daycare. Even under the most liberal definition of infrastructure, these would count as personal or private infrastructure, not public. One of the defining characteristics of “infrastructure” as commonly understood, is its public nature, that's it's for common use.
