First they came for the “man-size” Kleenex tissue.
It won’t be long before they come for the Manwich—and then the Sloppy Joe entirely.
We don’t like this but we can’t stop it. Why?
80% of Americans oppose so-called “political correctness”, according to British researchers.
Racial minorities dislike it more than whites.
The young don't like it any better than the old.
With such overwhelming opposition, how does it persist?
Because people have assented to things they know to be untrue.
Complicity in the lies eliminates resistance.
The supermajority’s abdication leaves a power vacuum a band of little white liars is happy to fill.
As the British psychiatrist Theodore Dalrymple noted in comparing political correctness to communist propaganda, “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.”
Therein lies the purpose of political correctness: control.
Therein lies the solution: don’t be an emasculated liar.
Stand up for what you know to be true or prepare to live life forever on your knees.
