One thing that I dislike about the world right now is the lack of meaning in most things that people do and say.

People have a tendency of conflating their verbal descriptions of things with the things. They talk about “friendship’ or “peace” or “honesty”, without necessarily knowing or reflecting on what it is.
People create words to describe what they see in the world, but you don’t need to see the thing to use the word
