Political correctness is about controlling what can be said in order to control the oppressed/oppressor narrative. It is not the way into a better world.
If we seek a world of equality, telling people what they are not
allowed to say and what they must say
instead is not the way to do it. But it's easier to be outraged by
someone's words than to actually do something positive. So there is a
whole movement of people who probably think they are working for
positive change by claiming segments of the population are victims and
therefore unassailable heroes, that their traditional oppressors are
villains and generally sewing dissent. While there is some truth in
these ideas they are far far far from the whole story.
proponents of political correctness look like liberals and generally
support liberal/progressive ideals except for one: Free Speech.
When I remember the "I have a dream" speech I can't help but think MLK
would be appalled, if not disgusted, by the direction and methods of current civil rights
What is the endgame of political correctness? Because it
looks to me like it is the perfect tool for fomenting strife.
