Re: Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small
Well, some of us dinosaurs remember the Communist infiltration and eventual control of disaffected groups in the US subcultures: the "Free Love" crowd, grass-roots liberal groups, radical factions, disaffected Blacks who were on the verge of incorporation, etc. It was all "Hush-Hush" and those who knowingly represented the Communist agenda were told to hide their associations VERY carefully, so they knew that they were under the gun, so to speak.
Now the tactics have changed: just as you speculate, I too believe that the eventual capitulation of the educated public is one of the goals of such social programming. Now the targets are those who are in danger of consolidating a power base with a voice strong enough to actually practice true Democracy.
