Euphemism is a way to say something without saying it, by making it sound better than it is. Often employed by Neocons in order to trick people into thinking they aren't Lying, cheating, or Stealing when they really are. For example people deliberately killed in situations like the Iraq War become "Casualties", people accidentally killed became "Collateral damage" or "friendly fire incidents", and torture becomes "Advanced Interrogation Techniques".

Nazi Germany

Back in the 40's In Nazi Germany showers became a popular euphemism for gas chambers and "Arbteit macht frei." (Work Will Make You Free.) became an emphemism for working you to death. [1]
