We write often about the impact of language and how it shapes reality, especially in the psychotherapy setting. Here is an excellent Op-Ed by Timothy Egan about the use of language in the World of Trump and how it debases reality itself. Egan says:

“Of all the things President Trump has done to destroy civil norms, his debasement of language is the most chilling and poisonous. For it has now reached down to every level, allowing people who are supposed to be societal pillars, or even role models, to act as if reality has no foundation.” Attention must be paid.
