Do words have inherent power? Only if we humans give it to them.

Some people or societies give certain words special meaning. They seem to have a power that comes from beyond here and exists separately from this reality. The belief that there is a built-in power behind certain words can sometimes cause conflict among people who each believe the words have power, but disagree on what it means.

Personally? I do not believe words themselves have power. But people give words power through their belief that words have powers independently of the humans that use them. I think this affects people from all parts of the world, religious, scientific, atheist, logician, mathematics, etc.
