The debilitating and dark side of political correctness

Reader comment on item: White House Nonchalance toward the Middle East

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Mar 21, 2006 at 12:35

I see as a clarion call, the need for enhanced accountability of those who fall into any or all of the following categories: Sympathizing with, shielding of, planning for, and carrying out the gangster tactics of those arrayed against the light of liberty shining in places that really need it.

The diagnosis is simple, but effecting the cure will likely demand this: the last ounce of strength of each of us who want liberty to spread by utilizing all of our best qualities. In other words, those attributes which are in harmony with the better angels of our nature.

This goes against the hamstringing effect of political correctness for it places accountability as the highest ranked priority.
