Trigger Words are words that spark something when they are spoken and usually for the benefit of the speaker. But truth without love kills, while love without truth lies. This is certainly true in our communication.
Word communication, for example, has certain terms, like freedom, patriotism, fascism, communism, terrorist, bi-partisan, Pharisee, liar, etc., that are often used as triggers that allow the speaker or writer to hijack the language and conversation, or to stop thought, or polarize thinking, by defining a single idea or substantiating a single conclusion. This is a manipulative process that is fostered by ignoring the total substance on an issue and instead concentrating on only a part of it.
This is often the case with giving opinion that is based on a snippet of news from FOX, CNN, or NBC for example…and concluding that is the whole story. Just remember that the media are the experts in trigger words. We need facts before we have opinions.
