Innocent, Active And Accidental Semantics

   (Commentary posted by Roger Erickson)

How Language Is Used to Deceive You: Politics, Business, World Events, Sports, and Law (1989)
We need another word in our language, to drive home the impact of semantics and self-parasitism, on our Aggregate OODA loop:

aggregate observations,
perceptions and paradigms,
policy orientation,
consensus and distributed decision-making, and
assessments of local and aggregate actions.

"Auto-immune" is well known.

Aggregate-self-parasitism should be just as well known as self-fraud, or even fraud.

This book is about the range of habits & tools used by the diversity of social parasites, working in diverse trades .... applied to the realm of human language.

Any suggestions?
