Re: what's the most glaring politically correct canard that the western intelligentsia subscribe to?
Good one drake.
I think the idea of equality has gone over many mutations. No one can dispute that we should be all 'equal' under God's law, or the law of the land. By that I mean, whether you are white, black, etc, and you commit murder, you should all recieve the same punishment.
And then through some act of Phariseeism, 'equality' became synonymous with 'sameness'.
Of course men and women are equal in VALUE, but they are not mathematically equal identities. I remember when it wasn't too long ago campus culture argued that men were just women with lengthened urethras. and that blacks were just really tanned white people. :-P
