THE LIE of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

PC: A Progressive Pathology

9c2353addbb6d43329e3ec28db3294d6_9781627874267PC didn’t just happen…IT’S GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN.

Political Correctness (PC) seemed to be merely an annoyance to those of us comfortable with the truth; we assumed that honesty would eventually prevail over its obvious fiction.  Well, we were wrong.  We failed to appreciate the virulence and potential impact of the Progressive movement—only 15% of the population. The ‘right’ to not be offended has become their trump card.  PC has become the new norm, and we hardly notice it.

THE ORIGINS OF PC

PC may have been an issue in China 2500-years ago.  Confucius observed that the first thing to do to restore a state to health was to call things by their right names rather than use understatement to distort the truth…

…but the foundations of modern Political Correctness are found in Critical Theory, an early-1900s product of Germany’s Institute for Social Research (The Frankfurt School).   Based on Marxist conjecture and underlying thesis that “all history is about which groups have power over which other groups,” its goal was to combine social theory, philosophy, economics and cultural criticism to delegitimize reason in favor of emotion and eliminate the distinction between the individual and the group.  It was a deliberate attempt to promote and spread Communism, nothing less.

ETHICS 102 – The WHY of Ethics

ETHICS IS: The sum of all fundamentals affecting right conduct in every case at all times.

…What it’s all about

Ethicsa universal personal attribute, defines what is right, good and true.  It requires nothing other than yourself to approve or apply.  It’s an integral part of you that applies to the whole of humanity—in fact to Earth and the entire Universe—not just to you or any particular group.

Ethics, founded in truth, a First Principle, is also right and good.  And this is where the whole of humanity comes in because while truth is a given, good and right are not; therefore, the terms require clarification. 

But first, to put ethics in perspective, it is first necessary to define its foundation, TRUTH.  But therein lies a problem:  Fundamentals (like truth) cannot be perfectly defined. They must remain at

…What it’s all about

While the mind is how the brain relates individuals beyond themselves, its use necessarily is limited to terms that its owner can deal with.  But while our minds require our brains, the ubiquitous potency of the universe does not.  In other words, there remains a dimension that is the essence of our existence, a vital incorporeal part of life itself that pervades our being.  It exists within us as well as in all of space without us, connecting each of us to not only every other one of us, but every corner of the universe, perhaps beyond.

ETHICS, TRUTH and CLIMATE CHANGE

CLIMATE CHANGE: Necessity is the Mother of Evolution

PART  TWO

It’s natural…

Currently Earth is in a scientifically well-documented interglacial period.  This means that we are coming off a glacial period in the recent geologic past (10-12,000 years ago).  There have been, in fact, several glacial periods in the distant past (and interglacial periods necessarily between); there is no evidence that this pattern will not continue in the future.  Earth’s temperatures can be expected to vary in such a dynamic system, and they do. In other words, global warming is a perfectly natural phenomenon and is currently taking place as is its nature.

Only one large volcano can cause massive alterations to global temperature suddenly and can continue over an extended period of time.  Earth has experienced and will continue to experience innumerable volcanic events, all of which have contributed and will contribute to

ETHICS: PRIVILEGES, VALUES and RULES

Society does not persuade us to be perfect, only to “go along to get along” for the good of the many. In fact, society and its laws persuade us to be alike, not unique, because it is easier to deal with, and regulate, similar entities.  It is within this framework, not ethics, that our society’s rules and laws are written:  just accept society’s values and obey its laws, and everyone will get along.

PRIVILEGES

We’ve noted that in writing its laws, society necessarily employs definitions appropriate to its aims.  Just as with equality, it has in fact done exactly that with the word rights. The law tells us that we have, for instance, “the right to remain silent.”  But we already own that right (to speak or not to speak is a matter of individual choice) and certain others as well, independent of society and before its law.  Our rights as human beings are absolute–givens.  What society’s law bestows are more properly privileges.  Privileges, like any group
