The blogger, John C. Wright, is one I was not familiar with; I do read several LiveJournal blogs but they are mostly about movies and hobbies. Even those blogs are very, very liberal so I suppose I didn't expect to find nonliberal political or cultural commentary on LJ, though I expect I will be looking in on Wright's blog from now on. (H/T Lydia at What's Wrong With the World.)
Here are some excerpts from the piece, titled On Political Correctness, or How to Speak Nonspeak:
Let me explain that I regard political correctness as worse than a lie.
A lie is a straightforward attempt to deceive a victim. It almost honest by contrast. Political Correctness is a corrupt attempt to poison thought and speech, and to impose upon the nobility and courtesy of its victims to get them to deceive themselves. A frequent side effect of PC jargon is that it renders rational conversation difficult, indirect, or even impossible.
Innocent and well meaning people are actually fooled by this simple trick. Sad to say, most people think like magicians. They believe in the rule of true names. They think (or rather, they feel) that when they are calling one thing by another name, that the actual nature of reality changes. They put themselves in a position where they can no longer talk about real things. Words are severed from referents.
Worse yet, magicians of this type resist any attempt to define their terms, because their ego and self-esteem are built into their false (often deliberately false) verbal models of the surrounding world. I speak from sad experience: an examination of recent entries on this journal will display the verbal magicians in all their smoggy evasions and self-righteous self-satisfaction.
Every thinker since Confucius and Socrates emphasized that calling things by their right names is the basis not only of logic, but of morality. Attempts to substitute euphemism or misleading expressions for the right names of things are not only deceptive, but illogical. It is both a moral and an intellectual error.
Whether you know it or not (if you are a conspirator, you know it; if you are a useful idiot, a dupe, you do not) by making an innocent suggestion about using a nicer word than Eskimos for Eskimos, you aid the effort of the forces of unreason.
If you successfully substitute the word 'Inuit' for 'Eskimo' on the grounds that 'Eskimo' is an insult, you will have successfully convinced the next generation that all their forefathers who used the word 'Eskimo' deliberately meant and fully intended an insult, or were foolish or negligent enough to utter an insult by accident. That conviction will be false, a lie, and you (in a small way, one more straw on the camel's back) will have helped to perpetrate it.
In the last 50 years, this deception has been successful, wildly successful. The purpose was to erect a wall to sever us from our fathers and grandfathers, so that, rootless, we would be weak and stupid. This has been done.
I also hate political correctness because their particular jargon is meant as a marker, a gang sign -- it is like the slang used by cliques in school, who deliberately exclude the non-cool kids by using code words only the cool kids know. But because political correctness presents itself as a type of courtesy, it is used by a larger population than merely radical Leftists, and this seems to swell their numbers, which is a deception of another type.
I encourage you to go over and read the rest. You might also check out the WWWtW link above for another anti-PC rant which Lydia linked to in the same post.
