Is it not the time to call it the end of an era with this “political correctness”?
The term was first used in then communist Russia. It means:”tow the line when you speak about our leader and their administration”. Not! “walk on my eggshells the way “I” want you to!” AKA! “Do as I say not as I do!”
We have to be careful in what we think, say, do. When it comes to other people. But! These are the exact same people that if you did the very something to them? You would get:”HOW DARE YOU!” IT’S THE OTHER WAY AROUND!
In reverse! The “baby boomer” generation and back. Here in the USA! There was no such thing at all! We treated each other the way we would want to be treated. AKA! “common sense!”
If you look at newspapers of the past! You will find that in those days. We meant what we said! And! Said what we meant! Not! “water down” English as it is today! This crap about:”I don’t want to be verbally injured!” “GET OFF THE PILE!”
It is so very unfortunate! That we as a race, nation, the world. That we all! Are followers! The need to belong, accepted, fit in. Is far more important! Then just plain “getting along”.
Our basic human needs/wants. Will always be there!
I know! That’s old (school) fashioned!
IS IT REALLY?
WE ARE ALL WE HAVE!!!!!!
