Entering a terrible social system

PREVIOUS NEXT


The social system in South Asia, as in all other feudal language locations, was and is a most cantankerous one. Into this terrible feudal language social system, the English East India Company entered. For the sake of merely buying pepper and other locally available goods, and selling them in Europe. There was enough profit in it. I will have to mention the various events.


However, before moving to the events, let me first list out the fabulous sinister capacities of feudal languages. I cannot explain each of the items mentioned in the list here. For it is a long route to that. However, persons who are interested in knowing them can open this digital book titled: An impressionistic history of the South Asian Subcontinent. Part 1 & 2. This is in Malayalam. The English translation is also given for the Part 1. The English translation of Part 2 and the rest can be had from VICTORIA INSTITUTIONS’ Website, when it is ready.


Since I have been mentioning the term ‘feudal languages’, it is befitting that I give a brief enumeration of its varied features.


I have been writing a daily text broadcast in Whatsapp under the heading: An impressionistic history of the South Asian Subcontinent.


The below given points are from around the 200th post in that broadcast. So it may be understood that there has been a huge built up to reach this point.

I am trying to give an insight on the interiors of many non-English social systems, which have a specific coding inside their languages. This might not be true for all feudal languages or for all non-English languages.


Pristine-English is a planar language, in that there are only one You, Your, Yours, He, His, Him, She, Her, Hers &c. If human languages can be understood as some kind of software application with varied features, it would be quite easy to understand that a change in the coding can bring about very many changes in so many items.


I do not really think that many of the readers would get to understand the points given below much. And I must admit that there is indeed a real Code-View as well as Design-view background to the features given below. For knowing more about this concept, the reader may need to check: PRISTINE-English; What is different about it?


It goes without saying that modern mental sciences such as psychiatry as well as psychology might not have any understanding of these things.


Languages do contain the design structure of human relationships, communication and even that of the design features of the society.


The main feature of a feudal language is the dichotomy or trichotomy that it has for words mentioned above. That is, two or three or more word forms for You, Your, Yours, He, His, Him, She, Her, Hers &c. Each form connecting to a series of word forms that define a lot of things about a particular person. His rights, abilities, and much else are defined in these word codes.


They connect to hundreds of other words, and bring about huge variations, and pull and push in all kinds of communication links.


Now, see the enumerated things that feudal language can do without seeming to be doing anything specifically malicious.


Feudal languages can:


1. act like a wedge between human beings.


2. can literally throw human beings apart in different angles and directions, from their planar position that is there in English.


3. can view and position different persons with various kinds of discriminations.


4. can sort of bite human beings in a manner akin to how carnivorous animals do. Not in a physical manner, but in a way that can be felt emotionally. People get frightened and are wary of others who might bite verbally.


5. can hold individuals in a manner akin to how carnivorous animals hold their prey with their claws. The prey is stuck immobile socially and position-wise, and totally inarticulate with regard to his or her pain.


6. can pierce and deliver pain deep inside a human being as if with sharp needles.


7. can very easily bring in mutual antipathy and hatred between persons who had been quite united and affectionate. Verbal codes can be disruptive.


8. can create a very evil phenomenon of when one persons goes up, the other man has to necessarily go down. That is, it can act like a See-saw.


9. can create a mental experience of being on a carousal or merry-go-round placed on a pivot, and made to revolve in an up and down spin. That is, verbal codes can act like a pivot.


10. can flip a person on top to the bottom and the person in the bottom to the top, with a single word. That is verbal codes can flip vertically.


11. by allowing a person to be ‘respected’ by some persons, and made bereft of ‘respect’ by others in words of addressing or referring, in the same location, the person can be made to feel as if he is being twisted and squeezed.


12. by continually or intermittingly changing the verbal levels of ‘respect’, a feeling of vibrating or bouncing, or of going up and down can be induced in an individual.


13. can create a feeling of slanting, relocating, being pulled or pushed, inside a human relationship by the mere using of verbal codes. Verbal codes have a vector (direction) component. So, it can create a shift in the focus of many things by a mere change of verbal codes.
