"If the political-correctness fascists get their way, we can safely assume it will be correct-thinking, "political cleansing" squads deciding what we can or cannot say on the Intenet. These people fear public debate and demand homogenization of "acceptable" attitudes compatible with their emotional, utopian idealism."

Reader comments about this quote:
Debate is one of the many key stones to a liberal and democratic state. All issues are up for question, every idea and notion should be fully discussed otherwise we are spilling out docterines that the people have no reason to agree with apart from the force of political correctness chastising them. sensorship even of ideals we find revolting is wrong - just because something is broadcasted doesn't mean people agree with it and this is what the state and media need to remember. The arts are being censored now and we see that certain institutions don't wish to have anyone take offence. This is ok for children's television and media but adults have a right to decide if they agree or not.

    The Obamunists are going after the internet now. The reason they will give is "hate crime". This whole globalist thing gets more obviously Orwellian by the day...

    Dear Jim K Austin, I'm sure you know but in case you don't, 1984 is a novel by George Orwell. His other works, especially Animal Farm, Homage to Catalonia are 'must reads' for insights into the corruptive nature of power over the well meaning intentions of the politically minded and motivated.
