Why are people so obsessed with words instead of concepts?

I don't know but it seems that you're the one obsessed with words. But, words are very important because they are our tools when we discuss concepts.

His Clairvoyance.....

If you read the comments from the left and the right in the last two weeks, it would seem that most everyone can be defined as a terrorist in this age of rage. There are now calls from both groups demonstrating and counter-demonstrating in Charlottesville to be declared domestic terrorists.
