Thread Name: BS: Political correctness
Subject: RE: BS: Political correctness
.. reminds me of when we were late 1970s / early 1980s students in the process of becoming politicised
in favour of progressive socialist politics;
..how the term 'ideologically correct' was something we used as an ironic piss take
for those amongst us who put blind adherence to extreme theoretical political dogma
before personal critical thought about the positive leftist politics we were newly discovering and accepting...
Same as how the mainly positive impulse behind what is popularly denigrated as 'PC'
can be warped and distorted into petty administrative risk adverse rules and regulations,
by timid over obedient jobsworth local officials afraid of insurance companies
and profiteering claims chasing lawyers.....😣
