Inside Wikileaks, Domscheit-berg
201.1 “Coded language is common in the military and jargon is an intrinsic part of most specialized environments….language like this is perfectly suited to preventing outsiders from getting any insight into what is really going on. There are entire professions that justify their existence only in terms of fluency in a self-referential system…jargon is a fraudulent form of significance, in which the person who is speaking automatically seems to know what he’s doing.”
Jargon is a great way to create a discussion chorus.
