Safe Mode: On
The History of Political Correctness

What Is Political Correctness?

Political Correctness (PC) is the
communal tyranny that erupted in the 1980s. It was a spontaneous
declaration that particular ideas, expressions and behaviour, which were
then legal, should be forbidden by law, and people who transgressed
should be punished. (see Newspeak) It started with a few voices but grew
in popularity until it became unwritten and written law within the
community. With those who were publicly declared as being not
politically correct becoming the object of persecution by the mob, if
not prosecution by the state.

The Odious Nature Of Political Correctness

To
attempt to point out the odious nature of Political Correctness is to
restate the crucial importance of plain speaking, freedom of choice and
freedom of speech; these are the community's safe-guards against the
imposition of tyranny, indeed their absence is tyranny (see "On
Liberty", Chapter II, by J.S. Mill). Which is why any such restrictions
on expression such as those invoked by the laws of libel, slander and
public decency, are grave matters to be decided by common law
methodology; not by the dictates of the mob.
