Political Correctness...

Reader comment on item: Bad News from Slippery Rock

Submitted by Bryan Jackson (Canada), Apr 12, 2006 at 12:46

Political correctness is to say that we all have to respect one another. Unfortunately, these whackjobs on both sides of the political spectrum, from the hard-right Bush Administration to the hard-left whackos that run many educational institutions have to see that chasing the hard side doesn't appeal to anybody and many times just doesn't work. I go to a university, and the profs here are very far from left-wing nutters. most here are pretty central on the spectrum.

It's hard to say that Universities are being corrupted, but its clear we have to make them top-grade institutions of thinking again, no matter what position on the political spectrum you sit on. political correctness be damned. Obviously, some rules have to be there - promoting hate is not an option, EVER - but censorship is nothing more than one narrow minded individual saying to another "you can't talk or think about this." My response to that sort of person?

"... I'll think however I want to think."
