E-mail to Kathryn Ryan, Nine-to-noon on ‘language of politics’ today.

Hello Nine-to-Noon,
To understand the disconnect in ‘language of politics’ the USA, UK, etc we must understand the broader cultural / historical flow in which that is taking place.  The fundamental changes required to address the challenge of climate change, on top of the challenge of nuclear weapons, is now understood widely and is terrifying.  The type of political rhetoric you are worried about is a desperate attempt to deny this known reality.  And the conservative mainstream neo-liberal language is evidence of the same desperation.
