    Can we remove words like violence, hate, arms, war , crime and sex from dictionary?

    No body likes violence, hate, crime, explicit sex, corruption, politics, misuse of money and muscle power, cheating, frauds,  disease, infection, viruses, anything against humanity or living creature on the earth. Can we remove these words from dictionary so that only beauty, health, life, peace and all positive words are to be talked about. Is it not possible for search engines to ignore all such dirty words to be ignored as spam.

    No it is not possible to remove those problems, they are part of humanity. To remove words that show the darker side of humanity would be to wipe out a part of humanity. Also sex is a basic human need, just like water, food, shelter, and companionship are. So I do not see why sex is in your negative list. Sex  can be a really uplifting experience if it takes places in a marriage or a healthy long term relationship.

      How wrong I was ? Right and Wrong have to coexist. No choice.

    We have to take the good as well as the bad.

      No doubt, Good can become bad and Bad tries to become good.

    Why would you wan't to remove them, they are only words used to name facets of human behavior.  Is it some sort of 'burying our heads in the sand', and those traits will go away?
    The behavior was there before some bright spark came up with the word to name it, it is not the words that are the cause.

      Let there be as many such words as there will be as many opposite +ve words too.

    We can ignore and remove them from dictionary and internet, but we can not guarantee that we can remove it from human mind, and it is impossible to remove them even if we remove them from all possible ways.
    But, impossible always says I am possible, so lets hope for the best!

      I was ignorant while asking the question. Ignorance and Knowledge are coextensive.

    A rose by any other name... Remove the nomenclature and the substance still remains. The words are merely descriptions of the items, ideas and ideals that are part of reality and, for better or worse, part of humanity as well. Editing the dictionary will not alter reality, but altering our actions can.

    Absolutely not. What would be the point of that? What if you get a disease? What would you call it?--"a healthy aspiration"?

      Old Empresario, All the words retained. We can't do without opposites may it be +ve, sex or north and south.

    For the past year Google and their ilk are trying to wipe these words from the dictionary and any on-line education of such things.  If you put the words violence and also put the word children in the same article or hub, it will get taken down.  They don't even have to be in the same sentence of context.  If those words and contexts are wiped from any media, weather it be books, TV, on-line it will not sotp.  That is silly and ridiculous.

      Words are only words. Why to bother ? Actually the question needs to be amended images, photos and videos spreading the words need to be removed.

      What would be the point in that?  That would just make it worse than it already is.  The Body is beautiful and the things it can do are wonderful.  It's in the minds of those who make it dirty.
