Scott W.January 16, 2022 at 7:04 AMI'm reading Viktor Klemperer's The Language of the Third Reich and I would bet that he would look at DEI, BLM, preferred pronouns, and the ever-expanding list of "-ists" and "-phobias" and recognize it as pieces of a "prison language" similar to his own time. And like a prison, the prisoners develop a kind of secret language largely out of self-defence.
This is why our ruling class is obsessed with "dog whistles". For example, "Equality of opportunity" is a dog whistle for white supremacy. This is just Thomas Cromwell from A Man for All Seasons:
"there is among us a brood of discreet traitors...to which deceit the King can brook no longer. And we, his loyal huntsmen, must now drive these subtle foxes from their covert."
which is why I've been saying for a while that end-game is a kind of modern Test Acts in which people will be coerced to formally swear to a number if Leftist dogmas if they want to hold an office higher than Town Dog Catcher.
