‘Political Correctness’ as said, is a term of abuse levelld at people who oppose aal sort of things, including Racism, Feminism, anti-transism.

I feel there is an urgent need to return to this thread, and not only because of the above quote, but also due to all the other loose ends hanging around here. I also realize it's an herculean task and that future replies will for instance have to provide charts and tables. It's just that I'm personally not really interested in discussing these issues anymore. I'm weary as hell of it, and it was never the reason I signed up to Crossdream Life.
Just saw Adam Curtis' last documentary on the tube, and while he is originally coming from the left, as a (real life) national conservative, I always find he's got valuable things to say. Maybe not so much this time, however, but one thing he was clearly right about: due to search engine pre-selective algorithms, we now live in a world of ideological bubbles that only contain our own tribe. We never have to step outside our comfort zones in regards to our preferred perspectives on the world, as the almighty net provides us with ever more pre-selected material that is nothing but more of the same.
It shows up in this thread how it has become a problem.
