It’s not about politically correct, it’s about correct politics

It used to be about pushing to be more sensitive and more mindful of others, an attempt to avoid offense with the clear idea it was “wrong” to say certain things to people. Its transformed from being politically correct, to requiring correct politics when interacting with others. There is only 1 universally correct position to hold when engaging with any peer, holding a view in contrast to their monolith opinion is simply not an option. Liberal politics bully conservatives from “outing” themselves publicly for holding such dangerous positions. I’m not sure exactly when it happened but there has been a marked shift, IMO.

Actually its about treating others the way you would like to be treated.

This simple formula has been lost to greed, jealousy and corruption.

IMO- Started simmering when SCOTUS ended the 2000 Florida nonsense, started seeing Soros funded groups in 2004, but only became visible to most in the lead up to 2006. Magnified every cycle since.

Its all just a morality pissing contest, and all of the left/right people are just pissing into the wind now.

Window dressing for the masses and a crap puppet show at best.

Government is about control and maintaining the status quo, the will of the people, meh, that's not even a close second.

No matter what crap "they" attempt to shovel.

We can't trust anyone who wants power, that's why we can't have nice things.

It's when they get it, that the problems arise.

Power corrupts, and absolute power, corrupts absolutely.

Mark Twain once said, "The difference between capitalism and socialism is that in socialism, man exploits man. With capitalism, it is reversed."

I really believe that if more people had grown up playing with the thought experiments required to follow star trek stories it would be far easier to discuss and celebrate all of our differences.

Capitalism and democracy are simply a prison where we canny see the bars DBCowboy.

None the less the most preferable form of government we have yet devised.

Then again the best slaves are always going to be the ones that think they are free.

End of the day government in all its many shapes, forms, and guise, is about the few controlling the many.

I think it was your Winston Churchill who said, "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others."

I think the same could be said of capitalism.

Yea screw that. We should all call anyone what we feel like.

Don’t listen to those libtards telling you to be nice or not cruel. They’re coming after your guns if you don’t comply.

Best course of action is to remain a patriot at all costs. ! Any costs. Go go

He's not my Winston Churchill mate.

Dude put tanks and troops on the streets of my city to smash trade union strikes, then there is the crap he got up to whilst in India.

That being said without the Mans contribution to WW2 we might not be around or allowed to have this conversation.


Capitalism's sorted DBCowboy as long as you have the capital.
