There is little difference between political correctness and fascism

Political correctness is a tool for implementing and spreading fascism. Fascism may be defined as a totalitarian impulse that views everything as political and holds that any action by the state is justified to achieve the “common good,” or sometimes referred to as the “greater good.” It takes responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action, whether by force or through regulation and social pressure. PC is the social pressure to make us accept forced regulation of our lives by those others who get off on the power to push others around.

The terms “common good” or “greater good” are slippery and should always raise an alarm that an attempt at fascist tyranny may be afoot. These terms are used by those who would enslave us because they are effective. They work to disarm us and let down our guard because we want what is best for the most people and that is how we define common good. The power hungry use those terms to achieve the opposite condition, a common bad where a small cadre of elite are in absolute power and control.

The human condition is that we who long for freedom must do ceaseless battle with those whose relentless pursuit of power is a menace to our liberty.

Book Burners and Gun Banners. Environmental zealots and the politically correct have become modern-day book burners in their attempts to criminalize and repress the speech of those who disagree with them. The Nazis and other dictatorial regimes used the old practice of book burnings and gun seizures as a way of maintaining control and intimidation. Burning books is most often done to censor materials that the authorities consider to be offensive to the cultural, religious or political order. In the digital age, it becomes almost technologically impossible to destroy information, even though restrictions on its legal possession and dissemination can be imposed and people can be prosecuted.

In the modern world, those who have power, but not the ability to convince others, often resort to censorship, or attempt to legally or forcibly ban ideas, products, like guns and sugary drinks, or practices that they disapprove of. A couple a months ago, a number of Democratic attorneys general initiated an effort to go after certain corporations, advocacy organizations and think tanks for allegedly disseminating “false” information about global warming. In fact, the information in question has been open to considerable scientific debate and, even if it was not, dissent from the views of the power elite is protected by the First Amendment. Even more disturbing is a quote from the Reason Foundation’s Shikha Dalmia that the Democrats, as part of their party platform, have pledged to use the “Department of Justice to investigate alleged corporate fraud on the part of fossil fuel companies who have reportedly misled shareholders and the public on the scientific reality of climate change.” This is nothing more than an attempt to use government force to quash dissenting views.

Read the whole thing. If the gun banners and the book burners ever get their way it will not create any common good nor make the world a better place for anyone except those who hold power over others.
