Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Quote of the Day: Political Correctness

 

“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. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” — Theodore Dalrymple

More commentary on this quote from Granite Grok: “Its purpose is to shut you up by the Orwellian tool of either removing words from our common language or, far worse, redefine words to be completely at odds with historical definitions. Take ‘access’ for example – when the Left means ‘access to contraceptives,’ they do not mean that you can go to the store and purchase it yourself. Instead, they mean to ENFORCE that unless YOU are buying such medications for SOMEONE else, that person has been denied access to it.”
