THE ISSUE OF SPEAKING

Michael Rada

Language is beautiful and powerful and despite the fact it is our tool from the cradle, many of us cant use it or are shamed to use it.

I am not speaking about foreign language, but our mother tongue

Most of us do speak, if not disability or speaking disorder appears. I know what I am speaking about because I suffer from stuttering from childhood. Today I enjoy speaking to thousands and would be happy to be able to speak to millions

but

there is a reason why I reached this stage

My work experience helped me and I do understand it is the CONTENT, not the package or grammar that makes people listen to me and talk to me.

The CONTENT which is missing on so many political events, in marketing talks, even on the protests speeches where more and more frequently just one phrase sounds, being repeated again and again and again not realizing that protest for protests generates just protests, but not change. HOURS FILLED WITH A NEVER-ENDING STREAM OF WORDS THAT DO NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO ANYONE EXCEPT THE SPEAKER.

LANGUAGE turn to silencer

SILENCE to obedience

OBEDIENCE to death

On November 17, 1989 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS in the CZECHOSLOVAK SOCIALIST REPUBLIC stands up for freedom and fall the communist regime without a single shot

Many others try the same and failed

It was the silence that broke into action and action into words including my own

words that started on November 20, 1989, a stream that never ends, turning into a river that turned into BLUE OCEANtwenty four years later.

There was no computer, so I wrote by my hand and continue the same filling the sites of five books

before I start to use a notebook and wrote another four books on the keyboard of my first and second notebook

I do not look for words, they look for me flowing from my fingers to the white of the screen, not alone, together, in harmony with the life I live and the work I do.

Words are not the problem, same as Plastic is not. The problem is HUMAN BEHAVIOR and wasting with all that we get into our hands. What we get for free is being wasted first.

It is not the perfect knowledge of the language, that deliver the change, but the careful selection of every word and setup of the content that can move nations to listen to a stranger speaking with broken words, painting the complex image which everyone can adopt

The issue is not only the LANGUAGE or SPEECH but the way how it is being used or utilized. You can do it the way every reader or listener will remember

or the way even the author forgot the content right after he, she, or them hand over the manuscript

We are wasting too many words, speaking without saying anything and I think the WASTE PREVENTION LEGISLATION should prevent similar to happen

SO enjoy every single word and don´t waste your time and time of others by delivering hours of white noise

Have a nice time free of waste and wasting in all its forms and stay safe
