What do folks think about the term "Verbal Aikido" - does that even make sense?

If it makes sense, what does "verbal Aikido" look like? Would regular Aikido Training even help with that?
Sounds like communist-era 'getting the population to police each other' in political correctness. There will always be people that say/do bad things - the world will never be perfect and if you think it has to be you will never be happy. Still, we should all do our bit not to add to the mess.
