There are two modes of language.

The first is command and control. And the second is listening to language.

Command and control is the most common, where language is seen as a tool to achieve an end. But when we use language as a tool, we become a tool.

Listening to language is very rare. And it is rare because we have to give up control, which we have been struggling towards for 22 years.

And giving up control leaves us open to ridicule by those who have achieved conmand and control. And they exercise control with all the pride of obedient children.

And yet language whispers to us - language doesn't want to be spoken, language wishes to speak us.
