The cynical redefinition of words is a fundamental part of their dystopian plan to seize power, and it’s working. If you haven’t read Orwell recently, I suggest you do so if you want to understand our current historical moment. Redefining words is an essential strategy totalitarian regimes use to gain power and control, and it’s running rampant. Any deviation from or questioning the ideology of critical theory (sometimes called intersectionality, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion or DEI) gets you labeled as one of these redefined words (racist, sexist, islamophobe, white supremacist, transphobe, TERF, fascist, etc.), effectively shutting opposing viewpoints out of the conversation.
