Research – Power of Words

When researching how people blindly believe everything they see on the news I thought about how that could merge into researching the power of words, looking at how words have been used to promote change throughout history and how I could use that to convince people to better choose their choice of words.

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”
Yehuda Berg

There have been many examples of people capable of controlling their audience through their use of words throughout history, both in good ways and bad. Examples of this are Martin Luther King Jr. who through his speech managed to change the way black people were treated in America and Hitler who managed to twist a country to believe in his crooked ideas.
