Keep Your Mouth Shut and Your Thoughts to Yourself

A reader, after thanking me for today’s column, then telling me two

hair-raising stories about his own kids being punished at school for

minuscule offenses against Political Correctness:

“Are we teaching our children to love your neighbor? freedom of speech?

creative thought? No, we just teach them to keep their mouth shut and their

thoughts to themselves (or to someone you can trust). I wonder what the end

results will be.”

Exactly. Political Correctness is nothing but totalitarianism. We slip a

little further into tyranny every time we yield to it.
