- Political Leaning
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.
The ridiculous stuff coming out of academe with trigger warnings, safe spaces, and microaggressions is much the same thing. If activists can force people to go along with this nonsense it confirms their power over the people, and a heady power trip it must be for these third rate teenage students. To defy it is to assert one's own strength and independence of mind.
