|The Ottmann Dictionary of Official Redefinitions
® is a must for anyone determined to win any argument without having to submit
to ordinary logic or to stoop to common sense. Every word can be used to serve
any purpose, so you don't have to bother with standard linguistic conventions
or usually accepted understandings and phraseology.
Not only are words used in completely
novel ways, but also arbitrary meanings are imposed in a forceful manner designed
to impinge, overwhelm, get across your own unrelated message, or serve any other
Where formerly a word might have had a single simple meaning, now with ODOR
you can choose any definition that will serve any purpose. If you have to serve
some nefarious organization's nefarious purposes, the Ottmann Dictionary
of Official Redefinitions ® is indispensable, because it even
allows you redefine what it means to serve any organization's purposes.
You can continue to do what you're doing, serve a
nefarious organization's nefarious purposes, call it something
else, and be utterly right about it.
ODOR is based on the technology of L. Ron Hubbard as given in his Policy Letter
of 5 October 1971 "Propaganda by Redefinition of Words" and is
fully approved by the Scientology Propaganda Machine. As Hubbard said, "Given
enough repetition of the redefinition, public opinion can be altered by altering
the meaning of a word. The technique is good or bad depending on the ultimate
objective of the propagandist." That is to say, as Hubbard makes clear, ODOR's
redefinitions can serve any purpose.
This semi-attractive volume also comes with the Martin Ottmann
Lexicon of English Snippage (MOLES) that will give you techniques
to cleverly eliminate any words or arguments that you can't easily redefine away.
You will, at a minimum, with ODOR, have a basis for pretending to be convinced
that your redefinitions, your propaganda and your snip tech are clever, and that
you win no matter what.
Ordinary people will naturally say that what you're doing by redefining terms
or snipping their words stinks, but you can say in response that it's just the
ODOR. There is no doubt that if you can't think for yourself, the Ottmann
Dictionary of Official Redefinitions ® will serve your
