Do you think PC is leading to a police state?

By Karen . Created on Dec 05, 2018
1984 predicted a country where everything one said or did was controlled. China took a page and turned their people into Big Brother. This country is heading that way. People walk around scared to express an opinion that differs from PC. Kids are taught to report on parents as well as neighbors to keep and eye out for anything that might be out of the ordinary. And protests are raised anytime one group loses. Guess what., I am not your brother and you are not my keeper. So mind your own business and I wont butt into yours. The poor Cops are run ragged. Check out a man in a black hoody out on the sidewalk after dark. Check on the elderly lady sweeping her sidewalk at 30 degrees wearing only a sweatshirt. Someone is parked too long, walked across the street and went in back of a house. A car driving has not stayed arrow straight in their lane. I am turning racist, homophobic, sexist and the rest because I am sick of having others trying shove it down my throat. I don't care who or what you are, but stop displaying it all and demanding I feel the same. What happened to live and let live. Why was I raised it was not proper manners to paw each other in public. But, now if LGBT, I am supposed to applaud it. Why are small segments of races, sexes, political beliefs or the rest screaming and getting all the media attention? Why aren't the people who are just being good citizens. And why are we raising snowflake kids who commit suicide, because they have not been taught coping skills? What happened to the losers saying we will try harder next time. Now they race into the streets screaming prejudice, slanted, cheated. I have a saying..the squeaky wheel gets the oil. But, squeak to long and too loud and that wheel gets ignored or replaced. Am I happy that my way isn't favored. No. But, I accept it and hope their way will do. And wait and see. Not immediately hit the streets in protest. Which all too often allows a base element an excuse to riot. Usually destroying their neighbors property. I am not going to look for PC in every history book or novel, cartoon or joke. Sweep history under the rug and it will come back to bite us. Face it, acknowledge differences and learn to deal with it sanely. You live your way and I will live mine. Your rights end at the tip of my nose.

In some instances being "nosey" CAN be a good thing. Check up on an elderly neighbor, report the person driving erratically, if someone is parked and going behind a house, maybe they ARE up to no good, better safe than sorry. Too late after the fact, IF something bad happens to say 'I wish I had done something'.

If anything, being politically correct prevents a police state. Not that I am a fan of PC, but caring for each other and enjoying differences, instead of rigidly defining 1 culture as correct is the opposite of a police state.
