...........and do not live under wahabiism where this sort of discussion would result in a severe punishment!

"I can see you are a man with fixed views. So there is little point in attempting dialogue as you prefer by what I can tell monologue."

What's wrong with fixed views especially ones based on first hand experience; like residing in Canada? If you would like to offer your expert opinions and dialogue on what Canada is like, what Canadians believe, or what worldviews are represented in Canada, then by all means do so and I will both read, consider, and respond in kind to your viewpoint. Perhaps we could even have a dialogue?

"Just for the record, the term "political correctness" as far as I know, was coined by Adolph Hitler, to silence opposition."

Where did you obtain this information? What are your references?

Acording to wikipedia, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_correctness#History), The term political correctness is first known to be used in Marxist-Leninist vocabulary to describe the Party Line following the Russian Revolution of 1917.[1]

This information would seem to predate Hitler by quite a few years.

If you are truly interested in learning more about world views an excellent source can be found at http://www.summit.org/ and I would recommend their 'Countering Culture' book. It offers a concise study of world views prevalent in western society today.
