Political Correctness

Political correctness is a Marxist strategy to divide and conquer a nation. They know that if you can control the meaning of the words, you can control the direction of the culture. By controlling speech the government can control the thinking of their people. Our universities are a prime example of how these institutions were taken over by Marxist ideologues who now control our university system. Political correctness is rampant on the universities and students can be penalized if they don't conform to the flow of the campus culture. Rather than teaching the students to think critically and seek the truth, our universities today are propaganda centers that impose a socialist agenda on the student body. These ideas are then carried into the culture by the leadership that emerges from these schools and lead the next generation.

Important explanation of origin and purpose of the political correctness agenda

Back in 1972 during my M.A. program at the university my American history professor came steaming into the classroom a few minutes late. He had just come from the history department’s faculty meeting. He vented. He said that the department wanted to change the way that history should be taught. Instead of trying to strive for accuracy, trying to teach history as it really happened, as much as it was possible, they wanted history to be taught with “purpose.” What did that mean? He explained that the department wanted to teach history in a way that promotes the values that they considered important and that meant designing the course materials and lectures to promote what they considered important and to influence students to reject other ideas and opinions. This also meant not teaching some things. Only teach what promotes the agenda.

The professor was incensed. He totally disagreed. I will never forget his statement. He said, “I told them (the faculty members supporting this new mission) that is not history. It is propaganda!”

For years I wondered what was driving this change in the way universities and colleges teach? Well, this book on political correctness answered that question. Reading it was an “aha” moment for me. There is a real driving force behind it all and it’s success has consequences for all of us.

Buy the book and read it. At least understand the roots of this movement.
