Political correctness is not only fascism pretending to be manners, but this goes beyond manners. Have you ever done your in-depth research about what is happening in different nations on the face of the earth? The nudity of some of our politicians including the backbone representative of the nation is exposed when in power.
When people are campaigning to get a monumental position in government, they tend to be “nice” by clamoring how they will change the entire nation and bring positive change in society. At that point, everybody is viewed to be equal just to get them to direct to the seat.
What happens then, when I say my name is Fredrick, but you insist on calling me by the old name you used to? This is because you don’t want to accept change whatsoever. As a rule of thumb, political correctness tries to impose a better and more productive world by advocating for what is good and silencing the toxic things or people in the society.
This is the traditional doctrine behind people’s minds, change, and a better life in the future.
However, when George Carlin said, “Political correctness is just a fascism pretending to be manners,” this statement holds weight especially in this current generation of “good leaders.” You might have a different view of what political correctness means as opposed to that. In some cases, it is featured with positive changes depending on an individual.
Nonetheless, how can this modern generation full of educated leaders, well-informed, and their style still wallow in deaths of innocent people, poverty, widespread incarceration of innocent people, and squandering of public funds without any serious action taken? Indeed, political correctness is just fascism pretending to be manners.
The dictatorship evident in different sectors is much alarming. If you have a strong and valid point contrary to what your leader has in mind, you’ll find yourself behind bars. Not because your opinion is bad, because your idea is stronger and can bring change in society. Meaning, we are living in a world where the elites are silenced to pave way for the naïve and pessimist in the society.
Therefore, if you are wondering why George Carlin’s view, “Political correctness is just a fascism pretending to be manner,” is correct, then you are lucky to find this post. From various research and discussions with political aficionado, we’ve documented the validity of that statement.
Still reading, below are the convincing points to make you understand why George Carlin’s view is correct;
- Private industries Nationalization
- Governments law opposition
- Legalizing marginalized groups
Private Industries Nationalization
The nationalization of private industries or institutions into government is one of the fascism that is evident among different nations.
As the political correctness dogma holds for a better world, this sounds opposite to what society expects. Dictatorship becomes the hallmark of each activity in the government. People want to do what they know, don’t correct them for their misdemeanors.
If you attempt to voice out such atrocities, you’ll be silenced without pity.
Governments law opposition
As explained above, when leaders fail to change their idea about something because they presume to be right, they will practice the same in their position.
They oppose laws that tend to benefit society or the ignoble people in society. What they assume to be right is what they tend to hold too forgetting who elected them and what they promised the society at large.
Indeed, this is sad, going against the beliefs set to help the people. Rather, manipulating things to suit your needs and family.
Legalizing marginalized groups
Have you read on the newspaper, blogs, or watch on your local news how leaders are using their power to legalize what everybody knows is bad? Just because they have registered in their mind and would silence anyone opposing the idea, they go ahead and make it official to the whole mass.
Consider what some of the government motions in different nations, they pretend to be advocating for the life of people when in turn they seek favor unto what they are championing. Not even you, a Ph.D. holder can oppose what you know is infringing your rights. You’ll be jailed or silenced without mercy.
With no doubt, George was right.
When you don’t do what the mass is expecting you to do especially when in power is a big disservice to your people. George’s view, “Political correctness is just a fascism pretending to be manners,” holds weight in this current generation.
The killing of innocent people, putting others behind bars, and silencing the elites portrays fascism pretending to manners.
