I am beginning a campaign similar to the FDA's. I am going to begin designating certain words as Schedule 1 words. A Schedule 1 word is a word that has no positive or medicinal purposes; and should be banned. The first of my Schedule 1 words is MORE. I'm not sure of a situation where the word MORE didn't have an implication of greed, or excess. I don't know if this is just the addictions counselor coming out in me, but I think that this word does more harm than good. (even that sentence was negative.) I think the designation of the word MORE as a Schedule 1 word, will help us to learn how to be happy with what we have and appreciate all accomplishments no matter how small those accomplishments may be. I don't want to discourage ambition, drive, or determination; but MORE doesn't have a completion point or a finish line. It's a bottomless pit. If you said that you weren't satisfied, then at least you would know that the goal was satisfaction. You can always ask for MORE; and some people always will. Maybe it's just semantics. Who knows. That's just my opinion though and who the hell am I?
