Our Language Has Been Hijacked

Liberalism

Modern liberalism is at odds with many of the ideas of classical liberalism.  Our Founding Fathers were liberal, but now we must label their ideology classical liberalism because the word liberal has been hijacked by socialists.  It's one of the many descriptive words for political ideology that has evolved into something quite different than its original definition.  This has caused quite a bit of confusion, and helps socialists hide their intentions to undermine individual liberty.  This example however, is among the least of our problems.

The Legal Society (Legalese)

The biggest culprit in the effort to pervert and distort our language is the legal society.  They have done an impressive job of creating legal definitions designed to deceive people that find themselves in court.  Most people would not dare to show up to court without an attorney with the exception of minor vehicle code violations.  This is because the legal society has made it incredibly confusing and nearly impossible to decipher the laws they've created without a law school education.  Here are three examples of how the legal society has twisted our language by creating their own parallel language that sounds and looks the same.  This new language spawned by the legal society is sometimes referred to as "legalese."

Person:

from https://definitions.uslegal.com/p/person/

A person, for legal purposes, is generally more broadly defined to refer other than just a natural person. A person may also include a corporation, company, partnership, firm, association or society. For example, when a company incorporates, it has standing as a legal person to sue and be sued in courts of law. The precise definition of a person may vary by state and applicable laws.
The following is an example of one state's statute governing the definition of a person:
"When the word "person" is used to designate the party whose property may be the subject of a criminal or public offense, the term includes the United States, this state, or any territory, state or country, or any political subdivision of this state that may lawfully own any property, or a public or private corporation, or partnership or association. When the word "person" is used to designate the violator or offender of any law, it includes corporation, partnership or any association of persons."

Bother:

Word games are what the legal society is all about.  You and I know exactly what it means when a child says sometimes their parents bother them, but the legal society will use ancient definitions to twist that statement into saying the child has been molested by their parents.  This is how CPS manages to take children from innocent parents, by playing word games and using the old French definition for molester.

from https://www.etymonline.com/word/molest

late 14c., "to cause trouble, grief, or vexation," from Old French molester "to torment, trouble, bother" (12c.) and directly from Latin molestare "to disturb, trouble, annoy," from molestus "troublesome, annoying, unmanageable," perhaps related to moles "mass" (see mole (n.3)) on notion of either "burden" or "barrier." Meaning "sexually assault" first attested 1950. Related: Molested; molesting.

Suffer:

Another example of an easily twisted word in the legal world is suffer.  A simple way a judge could get rid of your complaint is if you tell them the party you are complaining against caused you to suffer.  This is once again, because courts and the legal society can use ancient definitions of words that you might not be aware of.  Notice the first definition from the mid 13th century.  You'll see that telling a judge someone caused you to suffer is basically telling them you allowed and permitted them to do so.

from https://www.etymonline.com/word/suffer

mid-13c., "allow to occur or continue, permit, tolerate, fail to prevent or suppress," also "to be made to undergo, endure, be subjected to" (pain, death, punishment, judgment, grief), from Anglo-French suffrir, Old French sofrir "bear, endure, resist; permit, tolerate, allow" (Modern French souffrir), from Vulgar Latin *sufferire, variant of Latin sufferre "to bear, undergo, endure, carry or put under," from sub "up, under" (see sub-) + ferre "to carry, bear," from PIE root *bher- (1) "to carry," also "to bear children."


Immune From Legalese

There are many more examples of how the legal society has been deceiving the rest of us, in fact, too many to list.  However, there are a few words they simply cannot twist and distort with their legalese.  The most important one though, is property.

The reason the word property cannot be corrupted by the legal society is that it has always only had one meaning.  Your property is anything that is properly exclusive to you, and no amount of linguistic gymnastics can change that.  This is why there are many parents having their children taken away by the state.  It is not because the parents did anything wrong, but because they don't understand that their children are their property.  Go to court and demand your child back, you will be ignored.  Go to court and claim CPS is trespassing upon your property and you require your property restored, and watch the CPS attorneys fold like a cheap suit and return your children.  The link below is audio of a woman telling her story of how she got her children back in court.

I hope this has helped you understand a little about how our language can easily be used to deceive us, and how knowing about it can help you prevent government from trespassing upon or administering your property.  If you know of any other legalese words you think were too important to be left out, please share them in the comments.
