Good article, but I don’t think the author takes the threat of political
correctness seriously enough (being a Leftist himself) and suggests
that if the Left had just gone with the soft touch, these policies would
somehow become acceptable.
But it’s a philosophy that is fundamentally abhorrent and being open
ended and completely undefined is profoundly dangerous to society,
with the SJWs who are pushing it no different then fundie religionists
who are simply the opposite side of the same crooked coin.
