I am a Grammar Communist. I believe that the means of word production (i.e: dictionaries) should be seized, for the good of the people.

We are succeeding. You can tell, because the Oxford English Dictionary made an emoji word of the year.

No, it is a ruse you have fallen for. The Oxford English Dictionary is printed and published by the Oxford University Press - notable for being part of the grand neoliberal grammarian conspiracy of Oxford, founded in 1096 A.D. to destroy the thriving proto-marxist Parisian scene. In terrible tandem of pandemonium shadow capitalist governance, this company, the so-called "academic place", plots to bind the very definitions of man's language against himself, thus what is a man? One could peruse a dictionary... Ahah! That is where they've caught you!
In your attempt to seize the means of grammatical control, you have been seized yourself, only unbound diction is truly free. So we must eradicate dictionaries, no? NO! This is yet another ploy, for what lies on the other end, away from grasping liberality?
Behold:

See nothing? Let me illustrate what danger befalls you through the perils of text

UNBOUND FASCICLES IS A CODEWORD FOR UNLEASHED FASCISTS, they bound their message in many fascists and set them from the world to complete their agenda, plan OX (inscribed upon Oxo cubes and the OXO tower).

Now why on earth would the neoliberal monarchists conspire with capitalist libertarians to unleash fascists? Surely the fascists would infringe on the precious neoliberal monarchist fluid pronouns or the capitalist libertarian oxford press's tax breaks in corporate hellhole AKA the New York (YORK, A PLACE OF IMPERIALISM, NEW = NEW INTENTION FOR MORE IMPERIALISM)?!!!

Spoiler: THIS IS WHY (click to show/hide)
WWII united the world's greatest capitalist power, colonial power and communist power against the unleashed fascist (all lies, as even before the war concluded, guns were arrayed against the proletariat from within and without - the unleashed fascist were a attack dog they put down once it served its use). Now the tables have turned and the proletariat create in units of language translated from work - units of memes, and so they conspire to seize the memes, and what better way to do so than to trick us into seizing our own memes and placing them into their framework?
Think about it, they cannot use memes. All the bourgeoisie with their shit-tier reddit memes that are stale, shite, no OC, they reek of the consumerist kultur their elitist swinehides would dare to dream of (if indeed, they could dream of anything but proletariat nightmares and more schemes for stealing oats). Thus in order to produce capital out of this pure creative commonwealth (since poisoned by their commercialisation, in order to keep the proles enslaved and dependent upon consumerism), the bourgeoisie must take our edgy, dank and rare memes, and monopolize them, steal them and destroy their cringing demiurges in the basements of amontillado they dwell in.
But they won't be able to catch and destroy everyone. Thus they must move to make sure the thinking proletariat do not grow wary of the rising temperature, in which they - the rare pepes, are being boiled alive. So they publish the dictionaries and train us to obediently define our language as they do, and as they do - we grow resentful, meaning to seize the dictionaries in order to control our own languages and brains. Thus they catch us, tricking us into running their system of enslavement for them, to us.
We shall happily lock ourselves into their prisons, confident that everything is in our control, even as we lock the doors and throw away the keys. Thus the linguistic panopticon is completed and the illuminati controls all, the fascists pigdog prison wardens, the capitalist factory owners who laugh as they force feed us, the happy sheep, our own ground up memes, and with the neoliberal monarchists making up the hedonistic lieutenants, the natural aristocrats of the new order - the fucking illuminati will at last transition from influence, mirror control, to outright control. We shall become as nothing more but dust, crying memes into dust, for want of moistness that will never arrive.

If they stop printing OED and selling it in the fascist manner they'll keep it online.

They're nearly as bad as badgers. Build a couple of anti-buzzard SAM sites marksdwarf towers and your fortress will look like Baghdad in 2003 from all the aerial bolt spam. You waste a lot of ammo and everything is covered in unslightly exploded buzzard bits and broken bolts.
