English Synonyms and Antonyms
Etymologically, to alleviate is to lift a burden toward oneself, and so lighten it for the bearer; to relieve is to lift it back from the bearer, nearly or quite away; to remove is to take it away altogether. Alleviate is thus less than relieve; relieve, ordinarily, less than remove. We alleviate, relieve or remove the trouble; we relieve, not alleviate, the sufferer. Assuage is, by derivation, to sweeten; mitigate, to make mild; moderate, to bring within measure; abate, to beat down, and so make less. We abate a fever; lessen anxiety; moderate passions or desires; lighten burdens; mitigate or alleviate pain; reduce inflammation; soften, assuage, or moderate grief; we lighten or mitigate punishments; we relieve any suffering of body or mind that admits of help, comfort, or remedy. Alleviate has been often confused with allay. Compare ALLAY.

I think you’re God's gift right now to black America, to the black community all across America, because we've gotten this terrible, terrible idea coming out of the 60s, that our dependency on the larger society is justice. And that what we need to be doing is protesting, and that we need Black Lives Matter, and that we need black anger and we need black identity, no, those things assuage us as we decline. What we need are traditional family values. A mother and a father — no social programs will ever substitute for that. We need that sort of common sense responsibility for our own fate — don't just keep giving us things, more and more things. Ask more from us and we need to ask more from ourselves.
