Precisión del Lenguaje

leave a comment »


Esto lo extraje de uno de los documentos del Sena, del curso de Planificación de calidad:

Ya lo dijo Confucio, cuando sus discípulos le preguntaron que por dónde empezaría si de gobernar un país se tratara… Confucio les respondió: “Yo quisiera mejorar el lenguaje”. Asombrados, sus discípulos le dijeron que esa respuesta nada tenía que ver con su pregunta. ¿Qué significaba mejorar el lenguaje? Y entonces Confucio aclaró:

“Si el lenguaje carece de precisión, lo que se dice no es lo que se piensa. Si lo que se dice no es lo que se piensa, entonces no hay obras verdaderas. Y si no hay obras verdaderas, entonces no florecen el arte ni la moral. Si no florecen el arte y la moral, entonces no existe la justicia. Si no existe la justicia, entonces la nación no sabrá cuál es la ruta: será una nave en llamas y a la deriva. Por esto no se permitan la arbitrariedad con las palabras. Si se trata de gobernar una nación, lo más importante es la precisión del lenguaje”.

“Brothers and sisters, I am here to tell you that I charge the white man. I charge the white man with being the greatest murderer on earth. I charge the white man with being the greatest kidnapper on earth. There is no place in this world that this man can go and say he created peace and harmony. Everywhere he’s gone he’s created havoc. Everywhere he’s gone he’s created destruction. So I charge him. I charge him with being the greates kidnapper on this earth! I charge him with being the greatest murderer on this earth! I charge him with being the greatest robber and enslaver on this earth! I charge the white man with being the greatest swine-eater on this earth. The greatest drunkard on this earth! He can’t deny the charges! You can’t deny the charges! We’re the living proof *of* those charges! You and I are the proof. You’re not an American, you are the victim of America. You didn’t have a choice coming over here. He didn’t say, “Black man, black woman, come on over and help me build America”. He said, “Nigger, get down in the bottom of that boat and I’m taking you over there to help me build America”. Being born here does not make you an American. I am not an American, you are not an American. You are one of the 22 million black people who are the *victims* of America. You and I, we’ve never see nany democracy. We didn’t see any… democracy on the-the cotton fields of Georgia, wasn’t no democracy down there. We didn’t see any democracy. We didn’t see any democracy on the streets of Harlem or on the streets of Brooklyn or on the streets of Detroit or Chicago. Ain’t no democracy down there. No, we’ve never seem democracy! All we’ve seen is hypocrisy! We don’t see any American Dream. We’ve experienced only the American Nightmare!”
