    Social conformity can be to conform to the norms but I mean it as being forced to conform to what others demand. That is political correctness and/or laws.
    I still am not clear on what you perceive to be the distinction. Best I can tell, social norms are all society trying to pressure individuals to do as others demand. Society demands that one not yell at babies and society also demands that one not be racist. The former may be less controversial than the latter, but I don't think those are things of a different kind so much as just one social norm that is almost universally accepted and another one that is not.

    In all honesty this is a tangent. Political Correctness is about criticizing others to conform to their demands. That is my argument.

    Yeah, I'd agree with that, but that doesn't make it categorically different than any other social norm. The difference between what somebody calls "political correctness" and what somebody would call a moral standard or social norm is just how the speaker feels about the particular rule being pushed on them.

    Good point BUT I find it fun to view things negatively and assume the worst though so I will stick with "Political Correctness is Evil" for now.

    Political correctness is real but it's not necessarily backed by law.

    There can be consequences to any free speech outside the law. We can still be held responsible for our speech and other expressions.

    nah bro, antifa is about a witch hunt by anarchist/communist left wingers bro. they tend to be as intolerant, and bad as the actual racists they claim to stand against.

    They use anti-racism as an excuse for violence against those they disagree with, even those who are not racist but don't share thier pathetic left wing views.


    They are like akin to the islamic "sharia police" and about as tolerant.

    Not what I said, antifa finds racism where none exists, stalks shows by bands that are not left wing and accuses them of racism when they are no such thing.

    It's usually done via cowardly phone calls and internet muscles.


    wah wah wah. the worlds better off with maimed and dead fascists
    and communists, given they have slaughtered as many if not more than fascists over the years.


    but I agree, fascism is bad, so is communism.
