Political Correctness

Recommended Posts

Like many people I find myself very irritated by political correctness in all its forms, but have never really thought much about how it came into being and what is its real purpose.

I have come across a website that seems to sum it all up very well, so thought I'd pass it on.

I'm glad they point to cultural marxism when searching for origins of PC.

Everyone is the same, blablabla... Well, I have news for them - we're all different, and that's OK!

We can't tell jokes anymore in case it's considered racist or it upsets anyone.

Here`s a good joke. :D

Gog the Martian turned up to work with a brand new Thermos Flask.

Hey Gog says his workmates that`s a great Thermos Flask.

Yes says Gog it`s great it keeps hot thing hot and cold things cold.

What have you got in it Gog, says his workmates?

Some hot Martian coffee and two Martian choc ices replies Gog.

How long does it take for a complaint to reach here from Mars? :D

I looked up Children which is one of the "problem areas".

Essentially the site advocates slapping children, a simplistic knee jerk reaction to the hypothetical situation portrayed, which I cannot condone; there are always alternatives to violence.

I agree that society has unquestioningly toed the PC line, having been led by the likes of Toynbee et al, and this has led us to the point we are at e.g. councils employing full time diversity officers.

The whole PC thing started off with entirely good, reasonable intentions. There is no way whatsoever you can justify looking at someone like dirt just because of who they happen to be. Like many such good ideas though, some people got ridiculously carried away with it. It's comparable to the health and safety panic that infests us - great when it meant you were no longer hanging on to a creaky ladder by your fingertips trying to swing hammer at a drill in a mineral vein with a hundred foot fall beneath you, but ludicrous when certain people get worked up about you being two inches off the floor, and get obsessed with something could happen.
