Changing The World, One Word At A Time

So do you want to change the world, but you just don’t know how?

People try to do it everyday.

The inventors create things that make our collective lives just a little bit easier to live.

The activists do a whole lot of rabble rousing in order to get people to behave a certain way to achieve a certain goal.

Medical professionals find new ways to cure what ails us.

Those who get into non-profit organizations to work in service of the public are up there too.

Naturally, you’ve considered those rolls in your life. Perhaps they’re not always the right role for you. Someone is bound to have already thought of that smart phone application that finds your car for you.

Certainly you can rally the crowds to protest McDonald’s insistence on putting pickles on the McRib, but how far is that going to get you?

Getting into the medical profession is expensive nowadays, and potentially a doomed effort the way things are going right now with the potential implementation of Obamacare.

Non-profit = Non-decent living.

So what is one who wants to change the world to do?

Have you tried being a subliminal activist?

Of course not. You probably haven’t heard or seen the term until you came here today.

Change the way others behave without them even knowing it.

One of the easiest ways is to work your own personal nomenclature into the daily lives of people you will probably never know. It happens in movies, songs, and on TV. Shakespeare did it too.

The kicker is that you don’t have to write a movie, song, be on TV, or write a sonnet to get people to say the things you want them to. The only thing you really have to do is type them up on your computer and use the spelling and grammar tools built into your word processing software.

In an effort to improve the capabilities of the software you’re using, it’s manufacturer will occasionally query your use of the proofing tools to see if it can update it’s spell check dictionaries with the words and phrases you’ve thrown onto your hard drive.

Take a look at the request I received just today.

All of the phrases and words you see in today’s request all have appeared somewhere here on TharpSter.Org. The all initially started out in Microsoft Word.

Someday, my dear reader, you will be able to turn on your PC, fire up MS Word, and type the phrase “doosh baggery” without getting a little red or green squiggly line underneath which suggests that the assessment your 9th grade English teacher made about your creative grammar practices was correct. The mere fact that little line won’t be there to make you question your ability to communicate properly will be because of me.

You’re welcome.
