the word the way

The written word is a struggle. It begins at the conception of an idea and carries through caged and tortured beyond its final release. When it is finally emancipated it is given little respect, but beaten for bandying about too little or too much, for failing to achieve a point or reaching it too quickly without evidence. It is the first and last and the most anthropomorphic of beings. It is criticised and whipped into shape, it is written about and spoken of, taught and inherent. What rests about it, are the very beginnings of civilisation. Civilisation that now, rather than glorify it in bound books with golden lettering, smear it and laden it with meanings for which it was not intended to carry. The written word is the tool with which we wield our greatest strength. The value of a society is demonstrated in the way its language is developed, formulated and employed. This is the true war of our times, the war of words.
