This paper explains that, in his essay 'Politics and the English Language', George Orwell states that short and sweet are the way one should speak. However, the author argues, in today's world as in Orwell's time, people have gotten weak, lazy and pretentious with their words. The paper concludes that if his words are used correctly and with agreement on the definition of said words, the person has shown the reader truth in his thoughts, which, when expressed concisely, will change the world a person at a time.

From the Paper:

"With our truth being personal and subject to perception and translation, our truth is also subjected to new ideas, thoughts, words, and can change. Words change us, as ours can change and influence others, and how we choose to integrate them into our truth will affect how we communicate in the future. Again, with the world closing in, we speak through email, write instant messages, and have shortened what we say for the sake of saving time. What we have actually become is lazier with each passing day, each email sent, and each quick message to a friend."
