As citizens across the world face multiple crises, generally caused by the greed & misplaced ideology of a handful of grotesquely wealthy Libertarian & Hard/Far-Right elites, please consider the wise words of leading Linguist & expert on populism, Ruth Wodak:
I suggest every citizen concerned by the 'shameless normalisation' of lying & the use of far-right rhetoric, engage with the work of Linguist, Ruth Wodak, who understands better than anyone the way language is mobilised by hard/far-right populists.…

Every day I am excited to be in an Army in 2021. One that is committing itself to #PeopleFirst. Initiatives like #ProjectInclusion, #ThisIsMySquad, and #WhatsYourWarrior are making my Army a stronger, more cohesive, more capable #USArmy than ever before.

A young billionaire rushed into a hospital. He asked the receptionist, "How is my mother? When and why was she admitted? Who brought her here “
The doctor said "Your mother suffered a mild stroke.She was brought to the hospital in time by the elderly couple sitting there.
