A world of Anarchy in Political Correctness ?

    Of course no one admits it when the answers  are  based upon Political Correctness , no matter what the issue , no matter what the cause , or the debate .     When  this P.C. part of the  crowd begins its usual rants    it throws all reason to the wind .   Just where does P.C. come from ? Is    P.C.  is  simply the bastard child of laziness  and apathy ?

    I believe using  the easy answers , these  cultist  uniform opinions  are  tantamount to saying simply " I don't know the answer , or I don't have the time to research , or I'm simply too lazy to do the work so I'll use  the standard  partisan opinions as my crutch ".      Thereby giving anyone the ability to argue a point  without doing the hard thinking to come up with an original opinion , answer or solution .   This P.C. stunt seems  most available in the political  and social issues threads of forums .

    Do you think that ignoring   P.C.is enough or  should it always be called out plainly  , by labeling  an issue or answer  as such or do we ignore and argue reason to the best of our ability ?   Does anyone know where this term began . P.C.?

        Kathryn , I never realized  that P.C. was such an old term for one ,  which makes me sad that it's so  commonly used !  Oh well  ! Guess its time for another forum war ! Off we go !

      Isn't Political Correctness like porn? Different definitions from different folks? Who would you have as arbiters?
