"Security considerations are very valid." - BG "The first step in the [Nazi] murderous program that followed was drawing the initial conclusion that Jews were a security threat to the Fatherland." - All for Security Your conclusion then is that we should throw away the dictionary because every word was taken, at some point or another, to have a meaning other than its standard one. Sounds to me like a New French Philosophical/Derrida approach. Unfortunately, we still need a dictionary, so perhaps we should keep the words and just insist that when they are used they should be used in some "mainstream" band of meaning.
