    Yeah, when I was 16 and had my first job I had a big, stupid mouth too. You learn pretty quickly, though.

    A politically correct society deserves extinction.

    Sure it's quite different, but I'm also quite sure that organizing is actually specifically covered by the Bill of Rights. If one insulted customer is able to garner enough support from the community, and actually enact some change based upon his/ her belief. . . I'd just call that the free market.

    The world has never known a society that wasn't politically correct.

    oddly enough, the world hasn't known a society to escape extinction either.

    That's a myth peddled by parents to numb their children from vocalized ignorance.

    PC, yes, mind control, ever so quietly and discreetly at first.
    Whatever happened to GH, gentle honesty?

    Name an institution with positive intentions that hasn't.

    One obvious example of an institution that everyone loves to hate is HOA's. They're control-obsessed as hell and make idiotic rules like which color mailbox you can have, but people who've just dropped a cool mill on their new home are probably happy there's a rule in place that prevents their neighbor from deciding to put his old car on cinder blocks in the front lawn.

    Point is, you search high and far enough you're going to get your anecdotes of people abusing a good thing.

    A society with a system of mores and etiquette deserves extinction? Seems a little harsh.

    It's out of control. People are offended by every little thing is what I mean and will take advantage of the "feel sorry for me" groups. If people didn't make such a big deal out of such things, then they wouldn't be such problems.
