A Modest Suggestion for Pruning the English Language


I recommend that the following two words be officially removed from the English language:

  • Neoliberal
  • Fascist

The purpose of words is to facilitate the communication of thoughts between human beings. I have conducted exhaustive research1 on Twitter and other popular social networks which conclusively proves that these two collections of phonemes now do the opposite of that. They are therefore not words. Let’s stop using them.
