There is an annual contest at University of New Brunswick calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term. This year’s term was: “Political Correctness”.
The 2010 winner wrote: “Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of $hit by the clean end.”
Being “politically correct” is the mask that society demands that we all wear in order to get along.
It’s a platitude of conformity that should be the poster child for deceitfulness.
Never mind the thought process or very real consequences of hate and prejudice. Just don’t let anyone know what you’re thinking by staying within the guidelines of OK words.
Political Correctness is the enemy of honesty and truth. Tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may.
