The dominant post-modern thinking of our #fashernistas has made a mess of our idea of what activism is and for, positive social change, love not hate. The new breed of right-wing ”activists” are pushing hate and fear to further the agender of social destruction to feed the #deathcult god of neo-liberalism that we all worship. This is of course not activism, rather fascism. Best to use the right words so as not to add to the mess.
Yes, we've noticed this. They seem ideologically driven by the #ChristianRight and #AynRandian thinking, which leads them toward #corporatism (we can limit the use of new-speak; words like 'neoLiberalism'. 'Corporatism' is a more direct word to describe it).
They can't fathom that govt is #ThePeople, and that it can do good if it's not dictated to and controlled by corporate and vested interests, and rentseekers.
You are correct, we must be vigilant about using appropriate language.
And also, as much as possible, to further clarify how _we_ are using said langauge.
Even two native-speakers, when using the same word, can individually hold separate interpretations/meanings.
