    the conversation, though I can see why people would object to his concerns. The problem with the use of such words is that they can be overused or wrongly applied beyond what the person using them may have meant.

    Why would it not be best to avoid such words, terms, and phrases all together?  Why not just address the topic with rational argument rather than engage with such words?  It's the difference between calling someone stupid and instead explaining the why's and wherefore's.

    I get the use of propaganda when combatting the use of propaganda against yourself.  But I'd rather hear the argument rather than the name calling, particularly amongst ourselves.
