Do Not Speaketh the Truth!
By: Lance Winslow
Have you noticed lately that you cannot use certain words without people giving you a dirty look? It is almost as if “tough love” is no longer acceptable and you cannot even spank your own children. We are not allowed to see things in black-and-white anymore because everything is perspective based and even though you see something as a problem you do not dare label it what it is.
That person is not an idiot, a moron or dumb, they are merely intellectually challenged? That sounds fine; “Now Here’s Your Sign!”
The real issue is that you cannot say the truth in America, because it is not politically correct to. Thus everyone is denying actual observations and making poor judgments and thus the results are less than desired, yet the same political correctness allows them to blame another when it was their fault for lying to themselves, it is a merry go round at that point.
If we deny the challenge is that we face in society and our civilization then how can we fix the problems before they get so large they are unfixable? Recently a high school made a rule that you cannot ridicule the other team or “boo” during a high school basketball game. That sounds kind of silly because that is part of the sport and yet we have junior highs who do not keep score in PE soccer either.
The political correctness in my opinion is getting a little out of hand in this country and we need the pendulum to swing back. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
