    Politically correct speech and thought provide us with the predigested morality of self-appointed ideologues, the profane consensus of mediocre minds, in lieu of our own common sense and the collective wisdom of the ages.

    By this definition you have admit to being a ten. The bit about the profane consensus of mediocre minds should leave no doubt. I do understand the reluctance of many to register low on the scale, and perhaps relative to a society in which so many worship at the alter of political correctness they may even view themselves as practically rebellious. Interestingly, its tenants are found in the Frankfurt School as a form of cultural Marxism in the failure of the left in the West.

    Hard to tell, as there is no definition of "PC" provided.

    I try to be polite, though, even if I don't always make it. I think being polite is a no-brainer.

    My impression is that people who complain about "PC" only do it because they insist on their right to be rude pricks. Which maybe shouldn't be illegal, but is certainly bad style.

    We already know that you tend to use the fake argument that everyone is PC because you cannot actually debate topics. Therefore, your explanation above is irrelevant.

    Who describes themselves as "PC"? That is a term that is almost exclusively used as a pejorative, just like no one describes themselves as "anti-environment" or "pro-crime." As such, this poll will tend to generate results almost exclusively on the lower end of the scale.

    With that said, I'm maybe a 4 or 5 by the commonly-used definition of politically correct. I don't casually use racial slurs when talking to total strangers, so that makes me more PC than an unsettlingly high number of Americans. But I don't really mind off-color jokes, and I'm not going to feign offense when I hear someone make some mildly racist/sexist comment. If someone says something really offensive and seems like they aren't joking, yeah, I might have a problem with that...but otherwise, meh. I have better things to do than constantly be offended.

    Certainly not everyone is PC, but it is cowardly in the extreme to deny the truth. Looking at the polling results you would think that there were knee-jerk PC posters here.

    You asked for a definition and I gave you one. If that does not sit well with you, give me another definition or ignore it. What exactly is your problem related to the post?
