Multilayered Meta-Misinterpretations

As every bit of language is now deconstructed to its most ambiguous form.

An atomised society full of polarised people.

The best way to undermine a ridiculous law is to apply it to the letter.

But the interim injustice must be tolerated for how long?

Minority rule was frowned upon in Zimbabwe and Apartheid South Africa but minorities rights everywhere ought to be protected too.

Equal opportunity is complicated – but surely worth it.
