And from a french author Theophile Gautier-
"They have been contemporaries of lost empires,
they have seen civilizations that we have never known,
understood languages that we try to guess through hieroglyphics,
known customs that to us seen as fantastical as a dream.
They have been there So Long ,
that the Stars have Changed positions in the Sky"
idiot, that doesn't answer the question.
it's disturbing how so many people don't see through this as the mass control device that it truly is.
allow me to elaborate... "political correctness" or "being politically correct" can be defined as "the actions taken so as to not offend a race, group, sex, minority etc... etc..." this is done by compromising the values of another party.
let's assume any custom/belief can be had, as long as it does not violate the rights or customs of another person. peachy right? political correctness circumvents this by expecting change on one or both parties.
party (A) changing custom so as not to offend party (B) is, like it or not, indirect oppression from party (B).
for happiness on both sides, the only required variable is "respect". and respect dictates that nothing must change. this is not however the be all and end all, respect does already protect the groups who were supposed to benefit and be protected with political correctness. originally it came about for women's rights, anti-racism and other noble causes.
still it's a flawed premise that's already been embraced by the masses, where respect should be, however is not.
