For any political correctness discussion let's have it out - while we still have free speech.
Here is a good site worth reading:
Tonight on radio I was listening to a cab driver who plays carols while he is driving. Some teachers got into his cab and said he wasn't politically correct by playing the carols. Australia is a christian secular country and Christmas - the celebration of Christ - is normal. So why the mentalistic attitudes?So what is political correctness, how did it start and how did it become so successful? Political correctness is first and foremost an attack on free speech, clear thinking and discussion. Political correctness is perpetrated by the left in politics as a cover for their flawed ideology - a sort of cultural Marxism. By cloaking their strange ideas under the cover of not wishing to offend anyone (which naturally appeals to peoples' better nature), they try to bypass debate and give a 'received wisdom' which must not be questioned. And anyone who disagrees with this 'received wisdom' must therefore be a really nasty person and deserves to be ostracised by their peers. This peer pressure is instrumental in enforcing and expanding political correctness.
But here we have an example of cultural Marxism being spread by the left.
The average Australian has the requisite skill available to see through the cultural Marxist. It is called "common sense."
