Occasional Observation #28

This may be a sign of decadence, or possibly even outright bad character. If so, so be it. Whenever I hear the terms “political correctness” or “politically correct,” my instinctive reaction is to sneer, knowing I’m about to see the language gelded, spirited inquiry and debate stifled, and historical imagination suffocated. If patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, political correctness is the last refuge of a dunce or a moral eunuch.
