Humpty Dumpty Hypocrites

"When I use it a word it means just what I choose it to mean--
neither more nor less" Humpty Dumpty



In the end a curious and characteristic solution was reached. The Admiralty had demanded six ships; the economists offered four, and we finally compromised on eight. Winston Churchill, March, 1909.

In origin, compromise has an interesting etymology. It is a contraction of "common promise" meaning a promise made in common among promise makers. Important is to recognize that promise is itself a contraction (in Latin) of "forward mission" or an intention to do something, a mission to solve a problem. Unfortunately like many words used by politicians, the implied benefits of compromises has been reversed to the point where people convey losses as having been "compromised." When a security system is weakened, it is said to have been compromised. As noted elsewhere humpty dumpty meanings is no way to define problems so as to solve the problems.

When one hears a politician use the word compromise, one should ignore their conveyed positive meaning of compromise. Instead one should ask questions about who or what has been damaged by the political compromise. Based on the time decrease of political promises, they should not be viewed as common promises but condemend as common demises.


Faith: Cannot get them to agree on the meaning of faith which prompts some one to conclude that is the beauty of faith, it means everything.

Like the politicians saying that they "take responsibility" their use of compromise does not elicit the needed questions from the polity: Ok, you take responsibility so how are you going to "respond to your ability" to fix the unsolved problem. Afterall by saying you just claimed solving the problem is your duty to solve by saying you take responsibility?

  1. The importance of semantic honesty can be seen in an expression by Abraham Lincoln: "If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it."
  2. Hypocrisy comes in two variations based on harming a person. The vast majority of hypocrites are people who want to lie to others to harm them. Oppositely, there are the hypocrites who don't tell the truth to prevent harm to themselves and others, e.g, a Nazi asking a Jew if he is a Jew. Thus, hypocrisy is justified in the face of ignorance, that is, the listener will ignore the truth so as to harm you.
