If you want to write a mind-warping speech, read this book. The author was actually one of my college professors, and he details how to structure sentences so that they will be most easily accepted by listeners. In other words, you can reasonably attempt to brainwash your audience. This is all about structure, with absolutely no information about content. But who needs content when you can brainwash with carefully crafted form?
