Political Correctness has ruled the West for decades. It was a crime against thought, and civilization alike. It profited those who wanted to turn us into insects. Tellingly, so-called “liberals” (in the US) and progressives (elsewhere) feel that PC makes them just, moral, and strong. They have a point: the heavy chains slaves carry around, make them stronger (in a most demeaning sense). Political Correctness was a plot to make us all stupid and nasty, because stupid nastiness shared with all, is how plutocracy rules.
Brexit is the most striking example of PC gone all the way: it was alleged that the very idea of European Union was anti-democratic, and that the union had to be destroyed, for democracy’s sake (in truth, it was quite the opposite: plutocracy had penetrated the Union, but that plutocratic attack was pretty much directed from the City of London, a plutocracy (technically) and its many supports, admirers and co-conspirators…). The pretend the Union was intrinsically anti-democratic was a huge fraud, conducted in the name of democracy, and, of course, to serve the same old masters. After faking opposition to it, while conducting an extremely ineffective campaign against it, the entire British plutocracy lined up behind Brexit (even though technically the referendum was just “consultative” when conducted. Parliament decided it had force of law the following year! (If We The People had known it had force of law, We The People would have voted for “Remain”: it was sheer constitutional fraud!)
Not to say that the EU itself has not become a gigantic Pluto fraud. But the EU itself is governed by the national governments (thus the British government, which can pretty much veto anything important it does not like the EU to do). That was one of the many frauds hidden from the gullible British public…
Here is an example in The Independent, UK:
Brexit is not the high point of democracy – it’s the greatest fraud ever perpetrated in British politics:
“An irate local farmer told me he voted to leave as a protest against EU bureaucracy that delayed payments of his subsidies. He thought Defra was an EU department. He didn’t realise it was The Department for Rural Affairs and that the EU had fined our governmental department for its incompetent administration of subsidies.
No matter, we got our country back, even if it means losing the subsidies and keeping the incompetence.
British farmers received £2.4bn last year in EU payments and the National Farrmers’ Union has already warned that many farms would fail without these handouts.
Importantly, EU membership already has built-in border controls under the “right to reside” test. This provides conditions to entry, such as having a job or being financially self-sufficient. There are no immediate, automatic entitlements to benefits, which require further conditions. Most other EU states impose these controls rigorously but the UK has been less assiduous in their implementation.
There was no mandate to leave the single market, sell off the NHS to US private health insurers or to turn the UK into a tax haven. Brexit has divided the nation. For Theresa May to unite the country she must heal wounds and take the public with her.
As Churchill said, “Never give in – never, never, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense”. Brexit is neither, so I shan’t be giving in anytime soon.”
The Trump-Clinton dust-up was another example of fraud: Hillary was basically campaigning, she claimed, against (some) consequences of her own husband policies (which were an extension of those of Nixon-Reagan; Nixon himself was the architect of McCarthyism, and, sure enough, the cultural inheritance of the Clintons, coming straight from Nixon, has been revived, as ludicrously, Clinton promoters have revived McCarthyism… to disguise the fact they have no new ideas since Nixon in 1950).
The Politically Correct was a Perfect Con instigated by Plutocratic Conspirators. PC ^3.
Being trumped by Trump is just deserts for the brainless pigeons who supported the mindset the plutocratically owned press, media, universities, courts, deep state, pseudo-intellectuals, politicians and legislators endowed them with.
The weapons we need are deeper, more powerful ideas. Don’t expect them from the bleating sheep, and its meek heroes.
Expect the stronger ideas which will forge a better future to come from fiercer debate, where truth is told to those who have avoided it religiously.
Relative to the main course which is needed, old firebrands such as Michel Foucault or Camille Paglia are not even appetizers for hungry, rebelling minds. We need to devour the feeble-minded, and relish in that salubrious activity, be it only on moral grounds.
To want to devour the feeble-minded, we first need to throw Political Correctness to the winds…
No, I am not copying Donald Trump: “Devouring the Feeble Minded” was the old slogan of my ancient Tyranosopher site.
Mental progress has always devoured the feeble-mindedness of the present, let alone the idiocies of the past. Political Correctness, also known as mental fascism, has always been in the way…
