the issues of naming and language have seemed central to me for the entirety of T***p's time in the WH. it has seemed to me that not so much an issue of not having words as a) being unaccustomed to and afraid of existing words like "white supremacy" and "sedition" and "terrorist" and "racist" and b) a general disinclination throughout the culture to call white men (especially) on their bad behavior. I believe there's some kind of corollary between the erosion of truth among us and the inability (unwillingness? refusal?) to call things by their true (if uncomfortable) names.
