Instapundit that sums up nicely my own views:
Political tags – such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth – are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. -- Robert A. Heinlein
Heinlein's two categories of people implies a third, more dangerous category: those who want to control others using political means. To my mind, there is a stark distinction to be made between using the law to establish civil boundaries for public behavior (boundaries that rule out direct harm to others) AND using the law to establish civil boundaries to shape attitudes and convictions.
For example, the law can and should penalize murder. However, it cannot and should not penalize the attitudes, convictions, emotions that lead to murder. "Hate" simply cannot be made illegal. To attempt to do so results in a transfer of political power from the individual to the State, a transfer that threatens a free conscience.
Political correctness is a subversive ideology that directly undermines critical thinking and the free exchange of ideas by ruling out huge swaths of civil discourse in the name of "protecting victims." It's the principal weapon that cultural Marxists use to gain power over their ideological enemies.
I would argue that PC ideology is the acid that's corroding our Republic._____________
