History & Etymology

Originally from classical Latin subscribere a compound of Sub meaning under and scribe meaning write, to write under.

So subscribe literally means to sign at the bottom of a document.

But you don’t even have to sign anything, now all you have to do is click a button.

History & Etymology

The word peace entered into the english language from the Anglo-Norman Pes(pronounced peace) during the norman conquest of england in the 11th century.

The word seems to have originally entered the language as a greeting. Peace was used to translate the hebrew greeting shalom which means peace. Eventually it moved away from use as a greeting and completely replaced the word “frith” the original middle-english word for peace.

In the late 1960s and 70s the word peace returned to common use as farewell greeting, similar to it’s original use as a translation of Shalom.

And in 1988 the Oxford English Dictionary records the combination of Peace Out as a farewell in the lyrics of “the 3 minute rule” by the Beastie Boys.

This formation of Peace Out likely comes from the usage from the 60s combined with a technological addition reminiscent of Over and Out in use by radio operators.

I’ve been having trouble coming up with a really good commentary for what the word peace mean and how it should be used. After some thought and looking through other definition and discussions. I realized something very important about peace.

Peace is generally a word for an external state of being among people. It doesn’t include thoughts, feelings, or beliefs. This means that peace can be achieved even while hate, fear and disgust still abound.

You don’t have to like someone to live peacefully with someone else. In fact you could hate someone and still live with them. I’ve got a clip from a lecture by my favorite economist Walter Williams where he describes who this can come about.

https://youtu.be/zT7dN4tNzvg

But if self interest and greed can bring about a peaceful situation, as in that example, that means that peace doesn’t necessarily come from understanding and acceptance. I think a lot of times when people use the word peace they conflate it with the saying ‘peace and harmony’. Some people seem to believe we can’t live peacefully unless we all hold the same beliefs and values. I think we need to change this usage.

Peace is achievable but we can’t do it by changing the minds of others. The moment we try and impose our values, by threat or force, we are no longer being peaceful and we’ve become part of the problem. We don’t have to accept people to live peacefully with people.

The same holds true for international relations. We’re at peace with the countries we do a lot of trade with, European countries, China, and Japan, but the countries we try and bring our values to, the countries we try and impose western democracy on, are the countries we’re stuck fighting in. We have spoiled any chance of peace in these places while we’re still trying to help them.

The more we spend time improving ourselves and the less time we spend trying to improve others without their permission the more peaceful this world will become.

History & Etymology
Researching the Etymology of the word beach was interesting. The OED entry says it hasn’t been fully updated in over 100 years, and I’m not a big fan of relying on a wiki for information. I’ve tried to bring all of the explanations I’ve come across into an interesting story, but that’s about all it is so take it with a grain of salt and enjoy. The history of the word probably went something like this. The Old English word “bache” referred to the land a stream or creek ran through. Because a lot of streams and creeks are lined with stones, over time the word came to refer to those rocks made smooth by the running water. In some places the word beach still refers to stones smoothed by water. Eventually the a changed to an ea,the e was dropped from the end, and it became the word we know today. Beach. When someone would say, “I’m going for a walk on the beach” they actually meant, “I’m going for a walk on the smooth stones.” After years of usage like the example I just gave the meaning was transformed into the definition we have today.

Bigot

Noun

A person who can’t stand the idea of others holding beliefs different than their own.

History and Etymology

Originally meaning someone who stubbornly holds to religious beliefs or is a religious hypocrite.The Oxford English Dictionary records the word coming from middle french in the 15th century. Possibly deriving from a phrase like “by God” in an early Germanic language. Though there is no direct evidence for this.After the 1680s the definition of bigot began to expand beyond religious views, and grew to include anyone who obstinately, and unreasonably holds to views and beliefs to the detriment of those around them.

Description

How I see the word in modern use.Usually when I hear the word bigot used it’s being used to shut down a conversation, and dismiss people out of hand.If you call someone a bigot you don’t actually have to address their concerns or ideas, because you’ve already decided in your mind that they are unreasonable and won’t listen.This usage actually tells you more about the people that use the word bigot this way. What it’s telling me is that they are being intolerant and can’t stand that the people that they are shutting down have a different opinion than them. They prove that they are the bigot.

Prescription

How I think the word should be used.The word bigot should never be used in conversation with the person you are applying it to. It shuts down the conversation, and ends all possibility of making a connection or changing the person's mind.If you must use the word bigot make sure you are not being one yourself. What do you really have to be afraid of listening to people with ideas different than yours. Are you afraid that they might convince and you’ll have to give up the position you’re holding to so strongly? Are you so weak in your position that you can’t back it up?Don’t become the thing you hate.
