Weasel Words

Many people use "words" such as "hate" and "like". However, People interpret the word "hate" and "like" differently. Minarchists hate the state but they like the state to prevent anarchy. Propertarians hate corporations because of corrupt but they do not hate them because they do not want to abolish them. According to the collectivist left-libertarian rhetoric, they collectively "hate" corporations, no matter if they are good or bad. Just because some left-libertarians see some self-defined "anarcho-capitalists" as supportave of corporations, it does not mean that all anarcho-capitalists are like that. Left-libertarians are just about the most collective and bigoted group. Emotionalisms such as "hate" "like" "support" do not mean anything other than to incite conflict. So please avoid these words that are ambiguous and emotional and prejudiced. They often use emotionalisms such as "acceptable" "fair" "agree" "disagree" etc. These are often generalizations, which gives an "overall" opinion of it, without explicity stating the effects of something. Often, humans quantitize unnecessary things, such as quantification of popular opinion, such as "most" "some" "majority", etc. However, these quantifications cannot be correct because they are often overgeneralizations, which prefers the majority opnion over a few. Humans often extrapolate and quantify years. For example, our economy would grow 8% newt year. The 8% and "next year" are all quantifications, which are often very incorrect. If you are emphasizing date, only use the word "time", not a exact amount. Humans often overuse the word "but". For example "I like anarchy but" "i like statism but" "i like humans but". These are overgenerlizations of anarchy. The third example states that all humans are equivalent that there must be something that they "disagree" on all humans. Humans often overuse the words "correct" "agree". These are only voting, without explicitly defining the effects. Avoid words such as "like" "hate" "correct" "agree" "but", date and time, majority, few, minority, better, worser, big, small, (such as "big business" and "small business") employment, employee, self-employment, private contractor. These are overgeneralizations. There are no clear line between "self-employment" and "employee". Some times they are a mix.
