What you say matters

People who want good things to happen to other people will be rewarded for what they say.

It’s a lot easier to do good work when you have good words to say and work with good people.  – Mark Harmon

In a world where those who practice words of deceit and are hungry for taking offense – you need to be careful what you say around them to protect your life.

To say “I accept” in an age like our own is to say that you accept concentration-camps, rubber truncheons, Hitler, Stalin, bombs, aeroplanes, tinned food, machine guns, putsches, purges, slogans, Bedaux belts, gas-masks, submarines, spies, provocateurs, press-censorship, secret prisons, aspirins, Hollywood films and political murder. – George Orwell (1903-1950), British author. “Inside the Whale,” Inside the Whale and Other Essays (1940).

A careless talker does not need to worry about others attacking them at all – they will simple destroy themselves.  Psychopaths are notorious for not answering the questions asked them. They will answer something else, or in such a way that the direct question is never addressed. They also phrase things so that some parts of their narratives are difficult to understand. This is not careless speech, of which everyone is guilty at times, but an ongoing indication of the underlying condition in which the organization of mental activity suggests something is wrong. It’s not what they say, but how they say it that gives insight into their true nature.
