It's language, stupid!

Anything at all is good or bad, right or wrong, true or false, only under a description. Redescribe the events and their value may completely change. That is the power of redescription. There is no power greater, and it is a historical, contingent, but still relatively transcendental condition on what can be said or done or even happen to exist. We are stuck in language, a fateful closure that is insurmountable, from which there is no flight.
