- As we go about our “politicking”, may we be cautious and mindful to use civil or temperate language in presenting our messages. We should also factor the four basic things: WHAT, HOW, WHEN and EFFECT principles and guidelines.
Written By The Very Rev. Major Yaw Boateng - The use of temperate or civil language plays a very important role in the political environment. Language or speech is the instrument that brings change, inspires hope, and the determinant to convince thoughts. It is therefore imperative that all political players are circumspect in their speech and language. It is said that the manner and conduct of how one presents a message go a long way to warm hearts, inspire thoughts and drive home the point. One may have very sound and brilliant ideas, however, the manner of presenting them may cause confusion, division and spark mayhem. There is the need to always use temperate or civil language in the political environment.
