Linguistic liberties serve to mask erosion of civil liberties


What is it about international conflict and instability that sparks euphemisms and catchy phrases? Take the Patriot Act, for instance. It sounds nice enough, but itıs not. Because of antiterrorist legislation, political organizations are now subject to wiretapping and other forms of increased surveillance. The FBI has the power to investigate citizens for ıintelligence purposesı without probable cause. Local law enforcement agents have a higher degree of latitude to conduct secret searches of highly personal records under the umbrella of ıdomestic terrorism.ı Noncitizens, who are apparently not endowed with the same unalienable rights (and are clearly foreigners), can be jailed for months without having been convicted of a crime. This is patriotism?
