When reading between lines is more than necessary.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the twentieth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
In the previous post, I told you about a rather simple to understand example of a two-way phrase. Sarcasm is often used by weak-minded people to flatter their own intellectual vanity. Of course, it takes a minimum level of intelligence to shoot a petty arrow at an opponent, but if it is done at close range, at a victim over whom we have an advantage, it is not correct to encourage such behavior. Do you know what I’m talking about here? Use the strength that nature has given us to torment the weakest. This is tyranny, intimidation.
Please understand that I love humor, especially second-degree humor, but using humor out of context can become a weapon. Using a victim without their consent to put on a free and improvised comedy show in order to increase their popularity at the expense of another’s dignity, I don’t think so. That’s why I love self-mockery in my personal life, but I also enjoy professional comedians mocking public figures, as long as it is in good taste.
Enough about humor, let’s talk about efficiency. As we’ve said, understanding different levels of language is just as important in the evolution of communication as technology is. How so? We’ll think about that in the next post.
