RAD Dictionary

Updated: Feb 4, 2023




Introduction

Sometimes I hear political and social leaders as well as news pundits and reporters say the craziest things: Things that require new terminology. To define these odd, hyperbolic and sometimes disingenuous and dishonest views, claims or actions, I started the R.A.D. dictionary. In the definitions listed on the following pages, I hope to provide words that not only define the political double-speak to which we are so often exposed, but to start what I deem as that necessary conversation we must all begin in order to save our world and ourselves. One goal of the RAD dictionary is to find the common ground from which to start that conversation by defining the absurdity of today’s leadership. It is my hope that the RAD dictionary will blur the lines between red and blue, donkey and elephant, democrat and republican because those descriptors are all as artificial as they are harmful.


Regardless as to whether the commonality sought in the RAD dictionary is based upon stable precepts to which all can readily relate or the shaky foundation of ill-conceived ideas from the mind of a pessimistic with closeted optimist tendencies, it is my hope that a conversation between friend and foe will result. It is time to stop fighting over whose means of execution are correct since the ultimate goal is the same for every person on Earth.


One last point about the RAD dictionary is that it is a living document which means that I will continue to revise and add to it as I see fit, but, by all means, if you would like to suggest a term or two, let me know.
