The Ten Commandments of General Semantics
(humor - a label for those who don't "get it")

Copyright 2009 Ralph E, Kenyon, Jr.

  1. Thou shalt entertain no other theories (that conflict with general semantics).
  2. Thou shalt not construct or use other devices than the structural differential.
  3. Thou shalt not criticize Korzybski, for his word shall be not questioned.
  4. Thou shalt keep revered the annual Korzybski Memorial lecture, and never do anything else on that day.
  5. Thou shalt honor time-binding and all thy ancestors who have passed down the written word.
  6. Thou shalt cooperate with thy fellow human beings, for not doing so is to behave like animals.
  7. Thou shalt not truck with proponents of theories conflicting with general semantics.
  8. Thou shalt not take another's general semanticist's words and pass them off as thy own.
  9. Thou shalt not speak falsely against thy fellow general semanticists.
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors properties, for to do so is to behave like animals.
