1/13 In den Diskussionen um das #FramingManual verweisen einige auf #Orwell und seine Sprachschöpfung #Newspeak. Diese fiktionale Sprache beruht auf der Vorstellung, dass Sprache das Denken beeinflusst bzw. determiniert (linguistische Relativitätstheorie von #Whorf und #Sapir).
2/13 Elisabeth #Wehling, die das #FramingManual verfasste, schreibt in ihrer recht wolkigen Rechtfertigung, dass Sprache Bewusstsein schaffe, ohne dies näher zu erläutern.

3/13 Katharina Schulze äußerte in Bezug auf die geschlechtergerechte Sprache in Hannover "Sprache ist Denken und Denken ist Sprache". Die Antworten, die Hinweise #Orwell und #Newspeak enthielten, ließen nicht lange auf sich warten.

I am not making any judgement for or against Maduro.

Any government that approves (let alone overtly or covertly supports) regime change coups in other countries is asking for trouble.

Please explain to me what is materially different in the ructions in Venezuela vs France.
Let the people of any given country sort their govt out
👉🏼without direct or indirect fomenting of revolutions and civil wars by foreign governments

Normalising regime change coups and civil wars in order to install puppet govts, and enable corporate raiding is asking for trouble
What’s the difference between Venezuela and France (bar Macron being a western approved neoliberal globalist)?

Do you think it could possibly be - oil and gas?😏

Isn’t it odd how regime change wars occur in countries w oil and gas and other resources wanted by foreign interests

In politically correct #Orwell America, the missteps of relatives before your birth will cost you decades later in your own life. I wonder how many skeletons are in #EliLilly's closet.

#EliLilly has:
- Exploited prison labor
- Covered up teen suicides in early Prozac studies
- Jacked up the cost of insulin to boost their revenues
- Lilly pleaded guilty to illegal marketing of Zyprexa, which the FDA approved only for bipolar disorder & schizophrenia. They marketed the drug as a treatment for dementia and for pediatric uses. Lilly paid $2 billion to end the criminal investigation and settle several suits.

Ils ne disent plus :

-"déréguler" mais "libérer" les énergies"
-"Casser le Code du Travail" mais "ouvrir le champ des possibles"
-"travailler + pour gagner -" mais "émanciper"
-"900 licenciements, 1 million de stock options" mais "premiers de cordée"

Fil linguistique. Si on dit langue et #totalitarisme, vous pensez à #Orwell et1984. Mais qu'est-ce qu'une #novlangue? Les régimes qu'on appelle totalitaires ont-ils vraiment manipulé la langue? Comment penser le rapport entre langue #idéologie et pensée? (Sources en fin de fil)
Dans ce fil, on va parle d'histoire (les rapports de certains régimes, comme le régime nazi) à la langue, de fiction (Orwell), de philo du langage (rapport langue-pensée). Par contre pour la notion de totalitarisme et sa complexité, je vous renvoie au livre de Traverso
La #novlangue d'Orwell se base se caractérise ainsi :1-appauvrissement du vocabulaire (moins de possibilité de dire des choses qu’avant) -univocité sémantique (le mot n'a qu'un seul sens) -Déstructuration radicale de la syntaxe (plus de différence entre verbe, nom, etc)
