Remember when “dissent was the highest form of patriotism”?
Of course Lewis Carroll understood long ago what is really going on:
“When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master— that’s all.”
Minnesotans for Global Warming, of course, are “unpatriotic”.
