Political correctness may be the result of mass hypnosis. When you stop and think about how bad political correctness is, you have to ask yourself what function does it serve.
As far as can be seen political correctness serves no tangible reason.
Political correctness does nothing positive for a persons health, however it does cause life to be stressful as people constantly worry about what they say.
Political correctness is busy rewriting history by removing factual eye witness accounts and replacing them with the politically correct version. That certainty does not sound very good. It bring back images of book burnings in the early days of the Nazi party in Germany. That can’t be very good at all. Apparently the think they are doing a good thing while actually doing a bad thing.
Political correctness will not let people say that political correctness is wrong. That sounds like the same fear people have who live in China who want to talk about freedom. That does not sound very good either.
Political correctness will not let people express themselfs at they truly feel for fear of being punished. That also sounds like a place in a country that is not free. That does not sound very good either.
Political correctness will not let people tell other people that they are doing something foolish. That sounds of negative cash flow to me.
Political correctness restricts the creativeness of people and strives to make the world vanilla. That sounds like what antidepressants do to people.
With all the wonderful things about being politically correct, we have to wonder who is so sensitive that they can’t deal with the reality of life. When I was growing up people with that problem were under the care of psychiatrists and heavily medicated.
I wonder if a country wanted to invade a politically correct country they could do it without firing a shot. All they would have to do is bring in a bunch of politically incorrect people and have them start acting normal my saying what they feel, and acting like real people. Then everyone would be so upset they would start to cry and say they were going to call their lawyers and sue because their feelings were hurt. Sound crazy? Think about it, it is uncomfortably close to the truth, in fact it happens everyday but not on a big scale.
Following the leader about being politically correct, we have become sheep. This story below says it all.
ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) _ First one sheep jumped to its death. Then stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff, Turkish media reported Friday.
In the end, 450 dead animals lay on top of one another in a billowy white pile, the Aksam newspaper said. Those who jumped later were saved as the pile got higher, cushioning the fall, the daily newspaper Aksam reported.
“There’s nothing we can do. They’re all wasted,” Nevzat Bayhan, a member of one of 26 families whose sheep were grazing together in the herd, was quoted as saying by Aksam.
The estimated loss to families in the town of Gevas, located in Van province in eastern Turkey, tops US$100,000 (euro84,000), a significant amount of money in a country where average GDP per person is around US$2,700 (euro2,268).
“Every family had an average of 20 sheep,” Aksam quoted another villager, Abdullah Hazar as saying. “But now only a few families have sheep left. It’s going to be hard for us.”
