Thoughts and prayers - Urban Dictionary: A useless phrase uttered in times of sorrow or tragedies. Requires the bare minimum of effort because they are too lazy to get involved and actually do something physical to help with the situation at hand but want to come across as if they actually care.

In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defence of the indefensible Ö Thus 😈 political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness Ö the great enemy of clear language is insincerity. Where there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, ...

The writer Edward S. Herman cited what he saw as examples of doublespeak and doublethink in modern society[8] Herman describes in his book Beyond Hypocrisy the principal characteristics of doublespeak:

What is really important in the world of doublespeak is the ability to lie, whether knowingly or unconsciously, and to get away with it; and the ability to use lies and choose and shape facts selectively, blocking out those that donít fit an agenda or program.[9]
