“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small.

In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate;

and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” — Theodore Dalrymple

Your Say

And the next stage in your degradation is your defense of those who've defiled you.
Your guilt and shame are assuaged by admitting you were wrong to think you were right.

Reading bedtime stories to your child disadvantages the children of parent's that don't.

When you start down that road the scoreboard is pacific.

A society of emasculated liars. Every time I think we're at the crest of that wave,it just gets bigger. Or are we just more aware of its enormity?
