Diplomacy is "Telling white lies to other countries so people don't just all kill each other and start wars.
Likewise, political correctness is "telling lies to individual people so they don't just kill each other."
I think one of the places you can see how things turned into lies was Viet Nam when:
They started Calling "Genocide" Ethnic Cleansing during the Viet Nam War.
And instead of saying "Oh! We just killed and injured a whole lot of civilians by accident!": Now they just say "Collateral damage".
You can begin to see how saying different things changed the meaning of what is happening. Do you know what collateral damage is? does that term bother you?
How do you feel about calling Genocide "Ethnic Cleansing?"
These terms are still used diplomatically around the world by the U.S. ever since the Viet Nam war as well.
I was thinking about how something as seemingly benign as "Zootopia" is a completely politically correct statement for children to absorb.
I'm all for women and girls being empowered by the way because I saw what it was like for my mother and grandmothers in the 1950s and even into the 1960s.
HOWEVER, in Zootopia a female bunny wants to be a policewoman. Now this is not a bad thing to do. However, what are the potential consequences of doing this?
Look for example, at female marine officers who have found their private pictures of themselves or even pictures taken without permission of them either completely or half undressed on Facebook and something like 30,000 to 50,000 young men and older men were looking at these unauthorized pictures.
It is politically correct for women to be soldiers, marines and sailors. However, there has always been a lot of resentment from other soldiers, marines and sailors regarding this. They just aren't allowed to say anything about it.
So, what do they do?
They do this as a passive aggressive way to act out what they really feel. Is it illegal for them to have these feelings and to act out passive aggressively? yes.
Will this kind of thing stop now?
Because we do not live in a politically correct world. And soldiers likely will be similar to soldiers 1000 to 10,000 years ago for a long long time.
This is just reality. Anything else is fantasy. And Fantasy is political correctness.
The problem is when reality kills people because of their fantasies which is the real problem of political correctness in the first place.
This is why people like putin look at American and European men like men who have tied their hands behind their backs and are sissies in the old way of thinking. This is exactly how Putin thinks now and always has.
So, what does he do? He treats all men in America and Europe like they were Gay only he would use a different word. Where he comes from Gay men often still disappear like they did here in the U.S. still in the 1950s and 1960s.
So, what I'm saying is: Political correctness in Europe and the U.S. is endangering world peace because of people like Putin in power.
Unless we have a similar type of macho as Putin he will treat all men like women and take advantage of them and all women and children too in politically correct countries (JUST BECAUSE HE CAN).
That's just what all non-politically correct people do worldwide.
And to think anything else is going to happen the next 100 to 500 years or so is to be very very very naive.
So, wanting an ideal perfect world is great. But the reality is really awful in most of the world. And that awful reality just came to the U.S. through Trump.
Not realizing what just happened is actually life endangering to all of us in the Western world.
If the whole world were politically correct right now (this likely could not realistically happen for 500 to 1000 years by the way). This would be a different story. But, because of the way things are now on a purely (battle level) Politically correct people likely will be slaughtered to death by the realities of the world within the next 100 to 500 years by those not politically correct.
And the people doing the slaughtering will look a lot like Putin.
And this is why we must be more honest with ourselves and realize we are living in a fantasy here in the U.S. and Europe.
Otherwise, people like Putin will use our fantasy against us and kill us all in our sleep or fantasy.
And the first big death will be our forms of democratic governance which allows political correctness to exist in the first place.
So, Putin is now destroying Democracies directly by attacking us where we are weakest in the realms of political correctness through fake news designed to destroy us.
Not realizing this is to watch all our democratic institutions in the U.S. and Europe and around the world rot out from the inside from the unrealistic nature of political correctness at this stage of world history in the first place.
