How exactly does language and political rhetoric affect the communication that exists between and within governments and their societies?
I would like to explore the use, and more importantly the misuse of language as used in the political sphere. Particularly, I would like to look at the importance of the manipulation of language to persuade and placate the populace as well as others in that government itself. However, if possible, I would also like to approach the positives; the ability of a politician to inspire through no more than the use of language for example. Further, I would like to address the disconnect between those who write the speech and their interior beliefs and motives.
