Over the past few years the idea of PC culture or political correctness has become near omnipresent in not just American but human society. While there are undoubtedly drawbacks to the extremes of PC culture (as there are to any extreme) and I do think if, unchecked, it could threaten to silence voices of dissent which, to me, is the first step in the death of a free society, I am not confused as to why it is happening.
This isn’t some phenomenon perpetrated by the liberal media, or the New World Order seeking to move the sheep from one pen to another. PC culture is just the extension of ideals into the populace to debate from any segment of that popul. More people than ever are talking more frequently to anyone everywhere. There has been more sharing of cultures in the past 20 years than the preceding 200. The volatile and sometimes vitriolic social media discussions is a by product of these ideas and conversations. The internet is the change, the upheaval that has made the word such a connected place. Thousands talking to millions talking to billions. We are at the peak of literacy, of communication, of being able to understand one another from corner of the globe to the other. We are uniting.
