Doubletalk, doublethink: language experience of “talks”
This is an individual paper. The instructor wants to learn about your experience of leadership/organizational doubletalk, doublethink, and other “talks” you have personally encountered in your adult, professional, and other lives that changed you and your outlook on the world. Have you experienced the use of language that “argued for” something, while in fact undermining the very issue for which the speaker appeared to have been building the case? The instructor is curious if you can easily observe and identify doubletalk and doublethink? Please be honest and creative, and feel free to talk about other ideas and issues about which you care and think, illuminating the dichotomies of the language you have seen, felt, and experienced.
