So, I am just a simple person that tries to utilize common sense. If the term common sense is confusing for you then you may be part of the problem.
Now, let’s define political.
a: of or relating to government, a government, or the conduct of government
b: of, relating to or concerned with the making as distinguished from the administration of governmental policy
“keep up with me this is going to be mind-blowing”
Ok, how about correctness?
a : The quality or state of being free from error; accuracy.
b: Conformity to accepted social standards.
ARE YOU WITH ME SO FAR? LET’S SUMMARIZE!
Political correctness by what we have learned so far isn’t even possible. That is, no government nor the conduct/administration associated with said government is free from error. Let that soak in!
Ok, let this simpleton approach to a blog post continue. I’m cringing as I do this. I feel so elementary in my societal effort. I’m almost offending myself. I sure hope someone is offended by this post, maybe that will balance the anguish I feel for my being offended by those who get offended because of the offenses of others. What did I just say? I’m uttering foolishness. Make it go away, please!
I’m back 🙂
Ok, the definition of political correctness
The avoidance of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against.
The thought that is now burning in my soul is this, who is the dummkopf that coined the term “political correctness? Quite frankly, it’s not worth my time to investigate so as to find the answer, The point is that we have been duped as a country. Yep, sold a bill of goods! Are the feelings and mental state of those who champion “political correctness” worth our effort? Is it that important to rewire our communication constructs so we can satisfy the lost souls who have no confidence, credibility, or self-esteem?
If we simply follow verse, problem solved!
Matthew 7:12 “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”
