Children worry more about having their feelings hurt than protecting our country. Children don't realize that the right to say obnoxious and sometimes hurtful things is the same right that gives them the ability to spout their PC nonsense. Children also set out to completely annihilate an entire generation of their elders because they didn't agree with their ideas; and they did a damned good job of it.

The only people who are 'wrapped up in what's PC and what's not' are those being called out on uncivilized or mean behavior. Once identified, they defend by saying they are being 'attacked' by the 'PC crowd'.
I can see the "dullards" here.
I will not give you the permission you seek to be a jerk. That is what this is all about, right?

Yet, Freewill exists and energies will do, what they freely want to do. If you are confused, read some of my posts if you feel like it. I realize now that you are here to party but are wanting to try and be formal at the same time. Anyways, this documentary is about being proactive and realizing that there are still things out there that are worth the time and effort to change, yet some think the possibility is gone. It's hard, though. Life is tough. So I'll just simply answer your question. Yes, I believe PC or technology could be a means of an end to a bad beginning. It's just going to take one to start the spark. A simple idea from one, could save humanity forever. You know?

It's only the anonimity of the Internet that gives them protection to be racist or homophobic. Most people don't tend to express these views in civil society. I always find being nice and ingratiating myself with people is the best way to get what I want from people rather than offending and being rude. I don't know. I guess whatever works for you. I've never seen the PC police out on the streets or on the Internet. They seem to be a figment of some people's imagination. It just seems like certain people see those who are PC as killjoys taking all the fun away from offending the disabled and other voiceless minorities

I am glad you got the chance to participate in a meaningful way without being made fun of or offended. I hope you have a wonderful day today.
