When grammar can go terribly wrong

Loughner writes: You don’t allow the government to control your grammar structure, listener? The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar. What’s government if words don’t have meaning?
 
What underwrites our words is indeed a universal grammar that we are called to understand. But I advise to let the tension speak freely before acting on judgments that may be latter discovered to be premature. Sometimes we have to act, but why rush things. I say let free-speech have its expression first, because if anything I am not the mind controller.
 
There is both beauty and ugliness is this acting clip:
 
 
Please come face to face with the ugliness, because it is easy to feel too good about acting in righteousness. However, the end points found in the above acting did not arrive at the ultimate answer even if the killings were seen as necessary. To my view, the ultimate truth resides in finding a better self-image for even the defeated, and it is sadly true that some can find the better image only in death.
 
Oh how close was this Loughner to the same truth, but he failed with his premature appeal to death. It is comforting that we are as close to the truth, while not being impaired; so I pray. Perhaps we are better people, and will not make the same mistakes. Will we be better up for the chore, rather than waging war on the universal grammar?
