A man may take to drink because he feels himself to be a failure, and then fail all the more completely because he drinks. It is rather the same thing that is happening to the English language. It becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts. The point is that the process is reversible. If you care about language and need something to keep you occupied over the weekend, I recommend “Politics and the English Language” by George Orwell, 1946. Or I guess you could actually communicate with people. I don’t know.
