23 Jan

I’m not normally a big Confucius guy, but I found this resonant:

When words lose their meaning, people lose their freedom.
– Confucius

    I think he may be suggesting that people should do what they say they are going to do.

    or, maybe …

    When leaders twist words to suit their own interests, they are abusing their power.

    I do NOT think he was suggesting that words are intrinsically meaningful or sacred. If so … then he wouldn’t have used such a minimalist style which was so open for interpretation.
