do words cause death?

has there ever been a war, "justified" or otherwise, that did not start w words?

whether step number 2 is to join your country's armed forces and fight under color of law and authority, or whether step number 2 is to pick up your weapon and march into the streets, it makes no difference.
all wars start w words of hate and fear, of grievance and justice, of pride and heroism. words of otherism. words that call to tribal instincts. words that call for "heroes"

yes, words like those spewed by trump, and so many other hateful, frightened, stupid people lead to death and war.

2. Hence, the "PC" argument. It is all in the words we use, to create our reality.
