“We”, “We”, “We”, All The Way Home

Dear American who stands for peace and justice: As a matter of effective rhetoric for promoting our common cause, please consider my suggestion to use language that would distance yourself personally from the behavior that you and I disapprove of. Say things like “US officials ruined Libya” or “US officials imposed sanctions on Venezuela” or “the 1% wants to attack Russia” rather than including yourself with torturers and war criminals in “we” language, if you were not personally involved in the crimes or atrocities you refer to.
