A 21-page book showing how easy it is to create language favouring one person, group or society to gain power

" In the Name of the Profit Fyg" is a symbolic reoresentation of patriarchal language showing how easily language can be manipulted to advantage a ceratin group, category or political end.  It shows how language is developed as needed one item at a time with the passage of time to favour those aiming for power and control.   It spoofs ways of saying things so as to make them sound as if they are about reality, as if Truth is being spoken.  

It is a modern allegory imitating the situation seen in the speech-using species today showing how easy it was for patriarchy to manipulate language one item at a time through the 4000 years of patriarchy, slavery and feudalism.    

Feeling very alone and trembling with fear one day, Smyrnus Apfig went to Queen Smyrna and loud enough to be heard in all figland, he screamed, "I am not an apfig"
The Queen said with equanimity, "Well OK. Then what are you?"
It took him only one excruciatingly painful second to realize that he did not know. He had no other name to give her. And he humbly lowered his branches to the ground in utter shame and humiliation,
Queen Smyrna smiled and said, "Apfigs that don't know what they are are foolish apfigs," Laughter exploded all over figland.
