"No future triumph or metamorphosis can justify the pitiful blighting of a human being against his will." Peter Zapffe
Of course, illegal immigration is a problem, just ask any Native American. In all seriousness, though, America’s brand of freedom is absolutely childish. I didn’t agree with his rant on taking offense, however.
I understood the general message that one shouldn’t get upset by name-calling, but it almost feels like it’s just another tiresome tirade against “PC.”
True.. I’m afraid it can’t be helped.
I personally do not believe in the existence of “PC.” It sounds to me like you just take two random words out of the dictionary and keep saying it over and over until it catches on. If it does exist, however, but all it amounts to is treating other human beings the same way you would like to be treated in return, then I swear to Christ on a cross that I will live my life as politically correct as possible.
My favourite Doug Stanhope quote:
“If you’re offended by any word in any language, it’s probably because your parents were unfit to raise a child. They were too stupid, they should have been neutered, because all it is is a sound you can make with your mouth! It’s not a weakness that you have naturally. When you come out of that pink ugly hole onto this planet, you’re nothing but a gooey, shrinking, wrinkled ball of weakness. That’s all you are: you’re weak, you’re nothing but weak, and your parents look at that, and they think, “Not weak enough! We can make this thing even weaker by training it to react poorly to different sounds that you can make with your mouth.”
