Political correctness (PC) has become the sweet stick of the powers that be (or maybe the carrot-and-stick ?)
What exactly are we talking about here ? What is PC ? Who is PC ? Is there a consistent well formed formula for generating it ? Can it be measured ? Seems that those forces traditionally identified with the conservative right have chosen themselves to become the spokesmen for this term. Who has given that right ? The outreach power of corporate media ? Or is it the knee-jerk response to the challanges WASP culture receives from a grow- ing multiethnic America ? I'll let you decide. Until then we must be sensitive to the power of language.
Al (whi wishes we lived in a world where PC simply ment personal computer).
