Political correctness is for wimps

There are few things more sickening than the level of political correctness we are at. If we are so fragile that we can’t take a few well deserved verbal jabs, then you should just lock yourself in a room and have food slid under the door until you die of natural causes.

In a valiant effort to make the world better we have actually made it worse. When people must walk on eggshells all day just to avoid upsetting someone, is there any wonder why the drug companies do so well.

Telling Santa he can’t say Ho-Ho-Ho is just ridiculous.

An Italian man was given a suspended jail sentence for staring too intensely at a woman sitting in front of him on a train. A judge sentenced the man in his 30s, whose name was not revealed, to 10 days in prison and a 40 euro ($63) fine after a 55-year old woman filed a complaint for sexual harassment.

There are countless people out there who just don’t know what to do. The obsession of not wanting to hurt anyone’s feelings has got to go. We have become a bunch of whining wimps looking for compassion. Being polite is one thing but this is way out of control. It seems we are trying to produce the same vanilla world people experience on antidepressant medications where everything is just fine. That leaves me to think that the reason so many people are on antidepressant medication is because this political correctness has become unbearable.

Stop and think a moment what will happen if major changes occur on the planet that put us in more of a survival mode. The bird flu, food shortages due to global warming are knocking on the door already. When it comes down to mobs fighting over food to feed their families and hitting someone to get it, being politically correct will be replaced with a right hook. Whimpering, crying and threatening to sue will get you nowhere except perhaps trampled by the next person who wants to get to the food to survive.

The dots are there and although they are still spaced fairly far apart, the basic shape of things to come is becoming clearer each passing day. Take a look at the other posts on this blog and you will see the dots and nothing is suggesting things are moving the other way. It is time to start to toughen up for the world that is ahead for many of us and certainly for our children. Only the fittest survive and at the moment the people who are so sensitive will be the first to go.

Society and culture including political correctness is just a warm and fuzzy blanket we wrap ourselves in as we try to elevate ourselves above the imperfections of the other parts of the world. It is a way of saying we are above all of that. The fact is that is a fantasy that some are trying to perpetuate. Society can collapse overnight when a major catastrophe strikes. There are plenty of examples in our history that reflect that even in the USA. The Riots of big cities transformed sections of the city into battle grounds filled with angry people in the matter of hours. The rising cost of energy is already rubbing people the wrong way at the least and that makes for a shorter fuse no matter how you try to put positive spin on it. Bottom line is political correctness has nothing at all to do with survival and everything to do with antagonizing people who must walk amongst the wimps.

  1. Lese Majeste is an extreme form of political correctness. I wonder how long it will take people to wake up and protest this?
