Whether we realize it or not, oftentimes the way we describe something conditions us to accept it as being the unchangeable norm and helps to manifest and maintain that perceived norm.
For example, we tend to call the rulers "the powers that be". This conditions us to continue to see them as having all the power over us instead of seeing how we continue to give them OUR power through consent.
Below are two lists. The first one is of commonly used phrases and the reframing of them in a way that empowers us. Maybe if we focus on going towards what we want rather than on what we want to avoid, we'll be more likely to reach our common goals for human rights . The second list is of what things are usually called versus what they really are. This is a brand new page and I will likely add more over time as inspiration hits me.
