The human mind tricks

Instead of saying WAR, you say MILITARY ACTION; instead of saying SIGN THE CONTRACT, you say OKAY THE PAPERWORK, instead of saying thousands of people are dying, you say HUMAN CASUALTIES, instead of saying forceful removal of Arab leaders from power, you call it ARAB SPRING and you say NECESSARY REGIME in the Arab world…

Instead of saying civilian lives and properties are being destroyed, you just say there are some COLLATERAL DAMAGES. That is why instead of saying that our soldiers are involved in shooting at our own forces, you hear the words our soldiers are involved in a FRIENDLY FIRE.

It is a great mind trick because the human mind prefers euphemism. Our minds have a way of processing two similar ideas as if they are different as long as there is euphemistic comparison which borders on belying, ambiguity, lesser pain and fantasy.

That is why it is always better instead of saying LET'S HAVE SEX, you say LET'S MAKE LOVE...
