This author refers to doublespeak as ORIGINATING in government as nearly the oldest profession. Its main source is politicians in the Executive Branch. On this site, we refer to “doublespeak” in a legal context as “equivocation”. Doublespeak is also found in the bible!
“I hate the double–minded, But I love Your law.”
[Psalm 119:113, Bible, NKJV]
“Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double–minded.”
[James 4:8, Bible, NKJV]
Doublespeak and equivocation are only one of many methods of deception used by the government and the legal profession. Below is a book that documents ALL of the methods of legal deception we have discovered and documented so far. There are probably many more methods we haven’t documented.

The above book is our version of the speaker’s book tailored to the government and legal profession, instead of more generally to society.
We also documented all the methods of equivocation surrounding citizenship on the following page:
Citizenship Status v. Tax Status, Form #10.011
Never before has double speak been used more proficiently and successfully as now. We are constantly bombarded with language that conditions and programs us to adopt and accept whatever they want. It’s pretty much wizardry and they know how to use their language spells!
For a HILARIOUS explanation about how doublespeak works in government, watch the following video by now deceased comedian George Carlin:

William Lutz, professor of English at Rutgers University, talked about his book Double-Speak: The Use of Language to Deceive You. A unique analysis of American English, examples of double-speak are “human kinetics” in place of “physical education,” and “pavement deficiencies” instead of “potholes.” Double-speak is consciously used to manipulate. Lutz pointed out that his mission is not to eradicate double-speak, but to eliminate double-speak from the discourse of important issues where it is most dangerous. He stated that double-speak is most prevalent in government, followed closely by the advertising industry.
