Joseph Sobran on political language

The late columnist Joseph Sobran (pictured) was a perceptive and often humorous observer of language; for example:

“The meaning of three key terms has changed in our time: need now means wanting someone else’s money; greed means wanting to keep your own; and compassion is when the politician wants to arrange the transfer.”

The Takeaway: Enjoy thinking and writing.
