Većina političara pažljivo bira svoje riječi, kako bi oblikovali stvarnost koju žele stvoriti. Da li je to moguće? Etimolog Mark Forsyth govori o nekoliko zanimljivih priča o porijeklu riječi iz britanske i američke historije (na primjer, da li ste se zapitali kako je George Washington postao "predsjednik"?) i izvlači iznenađujući zaključak. (IzTEDxHousesofParliament u Londonu)
