Berkeley: Berkeley Public Library, 1990. First Edition. 8vo. Single sheet folded into four panels. About fine: bright, clean, and sharp overall. [6] pp. (Item ID: 20099)

Satirical leaflet issued by the BPL, comprising a list of "political euphemisms, pre-fabricated journalese, and 'sacred names' (respected persons and institutions)." Features two columns of demystified phrases ("evangelist" becomes "drug dealer," etc.) on topics including work, art, sex, and politics. "Many of the 'words of power' in the left column of the Decoder transmit ideological or moral systems like modern egotism, free-market capitalism, left-wing self-sacrifice, and technology fetishism.... To uncover the hidden meaning and function of words is to discover the pleasure of making your mind your own." No copies located in OCLC.
