Here is an excellent video on Google Video entitled ‘The History of Political Correctness’. It shows how it had its origins in the Marxist left of the 1930’s and was brought to prominence by Herbert Marcuse in America in the 1960’s. Also known as Cultural Marxism, it is a political strategy that aims to chip away at the foundations and structures of Western society and ultimately destroy it.
When ordinary, persecuted mortals say something in the press, such as “this is political correctness gone mad”, they know not what they do. They are – quite unintentionally -implying that this machinery of tele-stalinization, called “political correctness” has a place in reasoned discourse, and can contribute to the goodness of all our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth.
“Political Correctness” is not and can never be “mad” or out of control – far from it. It is entirely disciplined, acutely thought out, and a finely-honed weapon used very effectively against the very civilisation that these poor old men and ladies have – in most cases fought for in peril of their lives.
Nobody who is on the side of Good, against unutterably staggering evil, must ever, ever say the words “Political correctness gone mad” – it just plays into the enemy’s hands, gives him the credence and credibility that he is dangerously short of by making him look “sane”, and it abolishes his dangerous isolation and lack of suport.
