Language hinders communication

More and more, language seems to be a hinderance to communication. I hear a song and say “I know exactly what that cat was feeling.” I hear a news report or read an article and say “what the hell are they talking about?” It seems to make sense that an artist is trying to express something and is striving to get us to understand, but why does it seem that the media isn’t really trying to educate or communicate, but fog my mind with odd things. Who’s agenda is being served? That is the question I keep asking. Even with music or art- I look for the sponsorships, plugs and distractions, so I don’t feel that I am looking at different genres with different lenses. I have been trying to write PR for work, so maybe that has influenced my thinking more lately. Must be careful of the black helicopters.
