Political Correctness Today

One definition: the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against.

The above definition has legitimate weight when it is applied to situations where there is proven intent to exclude, marginalize and insult.

Today one could point to the exact reverse where the champions of political correctness exclude, marginalize and insult everyone who they deem as not part of their group - irony would be understatement.

Political correctness has now outlived its legitimate use case lifespan and is nothing but a convenient tool for those grabbing at political power. It's not about equality, justice and opportunity for all, it's about gaining absolute power with micromanagement levels of control.

The more it is used to manipulate and threaten the "perceived opposition" into conformity, the more obvious its abuse is to those paying attention. Only those who have brainwashed themselves into believing that only now after thousands of years of social history do we finally have a methodology of forging utopia for all, continue to believe in it and shove it down everyone else's throats.

History shows what happens when people are politically unengaged

In a nutshell, political correctness has now become more anti-social, hideous and unhelpful than what it aims to overthrow ever was. There is no mercy shown or humanity involved in dredging up some past action or wrong word spoken or silly tweet and then using it to cancell someones reputation, job and livlihood.

Our message to its practitioners should be to mind their own business and get their own house in order. If they do truly believe in PC, they should practice it more and stop using it as a weapon to gain their own advantage or to placate their own guilty conscience.

History is replete with examples of the chaos and bloodshed that resulted from political meddlers peddling their utopian dreams to the masses. See what these people for what they really are - wolves in sheep's clothing, busy bodies looking for attention or rabble-rousers.

Please share soapbox with those who value freedom of expression and keeping the public forum open to all ideas. If you know of useful resources that compliment our ideas, put them in the comments below and we will promote them.
