PC is very similar in that we worry about offending people (conformity) so we change our behavior in order to be "acceptable" to our peers.
Some people's insecurities are so much that they have to project their insecurities back on other people to make themselves feel better.....AKA political correctness.
Nobody ordered this...it is a byproduct of our insecurities while trying to be accepted.

This is not greater. By their own admission they have changed the traffic lights as part of a social conditioning, psychological ploy, social engineering strategy. It is happening in Australia, UK, U.S, France, Germany and anywhere else that will have it as part of some club above and beyond democracy that they tell us is our government, but in the next sentence spit at with contempt with their real motives.

Very well stated. S&F.
I was hoping you were quoting from The Guardian article, as I thought to myself, maybe the "news" is finally starting to see the damage this is causing. Nope. Ended up being the story about the freaking crossing signs.
I agree so wholeheartedly with you OP, it's not even funny. We are in big trouble if the agenda keeps being pushed. This IS the reason Trump ended up getting the electoral votes. He is the least PC person on the planet, and people are refreshed by it. The new generation is completely indoctrinated with totally false thinking. It's freaking creepy.
About half of us are awake to it, but we now live in a society where it is "unpopular" to be awake on this. Any talk of it in public (against the pc culture) and you might as well get a public lashing. People's lives are being destroyed over this utter insanity.
It's scary as Hell and so totally frustrating to see so many people continuing to defend it.
Anyway. Great post.
the persistent attempt to suppress the expression of unwelcome beliefs and ideas.
Selective private colleges have become religious schools. The religion in question is not Methodism or Catholicism but an extreme version of the belief system of the liberal elite: the liberal professional, managerial, and creative classes, which provide a large majority of students enrolled at such places and an even larger majority of faculty and administrators who work at them. To attend those institutions is to be socialized, and not infrequently, indoctrinated into that religion.
What does it mean to say that these institutions are religious schools? First, that they possess a dogma, unwritten but understood by all: a set of “correct” opinions and beliefs, or at best, a narrow range within which disagreement is permitted. There is a right way to think and a right way to talk, and also a right set of things to think and talk about. Secularism is taken for granted. Environmentalism is a sacred cause. Issues of identity—principally the holy trinity of race, gender, and sexuality—occupy the center of concern. The presiding presence is Michel Foucault, with his theories of power, discourse, and the social construction of the self, who plays the same role on the left as Marx once did.
His theories addressed the relationship between power and knowledge, and how they are used as a form of social control through societal institutions.
In 1970 he was admitted to the Collège de France, membership of which he retained until his death. He also became active in a number of left-wing groups involved in anti-racist campaigns, anti-human rights abuses movements, and the struggle for penal reform.
