The English language has developed in a way that makes the language ugly and imprecise. “Politics and the English Language” written by George Orwell in 1946, illustrates the fact that most people living in the United States generally write very badly and that they have to improve their writing skills. He argues that meaningless words are being used and that people are being lazy when they write. Orwell’s essay is a lesson on how people can improve their writing in a better way than they are now. He examines the connection between the degradation of language and the political orthodoxies.

Texting is ubiquitous in modern Western society. It's a convenient way to communicate basic ideas quickly without having to commit to a phone conversation or the long wait for a letter. All of this is done through cellular phones on the go and many teenagers have subscribed to this method of communication as their primary one. When texting, it is customary to abbreviate certain words in order to save time. These abbreviations can be considered a language that evolves out of texting, and that language can be referred to as textspeak.

In the Article “What the Words We Use Say About Us” by David Brooks, the author talks about how the atomization and demoralization of society led to certain forms of social breakdown. The author states that societies today have demoralized as people have begun to think about themselves more based on Google’s database. David Brook says that as time has passed, people have become more self-centered, less caring about their surroundings and less humble because of how frequently those words were used in the books published into a database system that has a couple million published books from 1500 to 2008. There is much more to society and its morals than what Google’s database system shows. The fact that there’s a book that uses the words “personalized, I come first or self” more than “tribe, community and united” doesn’t mean that the society today lacks all the morals.

This leaves the reader with one remaining option in who is to blame and that 's the individual with the most part no excuses. Through Dana 's delicate robing of excuses at the beginning of her speech ensuring that the argument was on point and stayed consistent with Dana 's arguing it 's the

The book also depicts the lives of people during The Roaring Twenties and how the downfall of the economy and overproduction lead to mass unemployment and struggling families. McElvaine’s point of view on the Great Depression was considerably biased.
As an institution of public good, the American news media system has slowly become less reliable and increasingly unpopular in recent years. This unreliability has become an issue especially when it comes to political coverage.
