I roll my eyes at people who have to obsessively research and basically pull out of their own asses deep and meaningful interpretations that never existed. But I cannot blame them. For when I did my own meaningful academic studies (aka googled a dictionary website and plugged in a word), I see that the Greek origins imply a sort of privacy, almost as if one's own ought not be conductive to share with the world at large.
Because if a word was used in Ancient times, it must be important and have a greater contextual meaning.
(Idiot. The word I looked up for its historical origin was idiot. The dictionary did not recognize dumbass, alas.)
And I was a fucking English major. Making up shit was kind of how I got through college.
