The Real Purpose of Political Correctness

Some profound Truth from British writer Theodore Dalrymple

"Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity.

Dalrymple is a verbose and egoistic fool as his verbal meanderings while in NZ in recent times prove.

Your whole post attacks the man-not a word about the content.

Why is that Steve?

Is just hilarious--and pathetic.
Dalrymple attacked NZ's culture of welfare and drug-use, Dalrymple has first-hand experience in dealing with the results of those things, he's one of the most widely-read and respected authors in the world.Yet some idiot from Northland--the capital of skunk and that he lacks the ability to distinguish between the objective and subjective.
