    What is more dangerously:Political Correctness or Terrorism?

    As a nature consequence of Political Correctness the effective fighting of Terrorism is almost impossible, the Libs, Lefties & Co. make huge outrage and cry out if for example a Mosque is observed or a Government want to perform the "Profiling" of Passengers in the Airports. It seems the Political Correctness is grown up to one of the biggest supporters of Terrorism in the Western World.

    Or maybe the aforementioned statement is wrong, against that the Political Correctness is the biggest combatant against Terrorism, please vote and describe your opinion.

    Neither, overbearing thieving, murderous governments is the most dangerous

    Terrorism. Political correctness is just having good manners, self-restraint, and the ability to get points across without provoking people.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Re: What is more dangerously:Political Correctness or Terrorism?

    First off political correctness came from the right, not the left. Sure the left might have adopted it to fixate on its pet pevs, but political correctness originated on the right and especially being pushed by the religious right on areas of "morals". It was politically correct once that women did not smoke in public, or wear pants. It was politically correct that a woman marry young to the man of her parents choice.. a woman not married at the mid 20s was seen as a spinster. It was political correct once that women did not work or go to college. It was highly politically incorrect when the first women did such things.. and all this happened long before the "left" started up. And that is just some of the many examples of "political correctness".

    Second off, terror is a relative term. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. Those words ring very true even to this day, just as they did when they were first voiced long ago, and even before the concept was categorised. George Washington would be a terrorist in today's terms. The tactics he used during the Revolutionary war were at the time, new and seen as immoral as it went against the code of war. Much like today's terrorists. Now this is not a defence of terror in any ways, but one has to remember at one time the founding fathers of Israel for example were considered terrorists. The French resistance were terrorists to the Germans... and so on and so on. Terror has been around a very long time, but they were usually quantified as criminals or rebels.

    Now both are dangerous, no doubt about that, especially when used to control others.

    However what is much more dangerous is government and corporations and especially corporations since we have no control over those what so ever. So corporatism is by far the most dangerous thing on earth at this time, far more dangerous than terror or political correctness... in fact one could easily claim that terror is a result of corporatism gone unchecked. At least with government we get to have some say in who runs it.. that we often elect people that corporations want is another matter... this of course varries with country to country.. some are worse then others.

    Actually you did. Political correctness manifests itself in many ways. For example, the 9/11 bombers came from a society where it was politically correct to strike at those who had "wronged" them or their society in some way. Now this does not mean terror per say, but also upholding ones and ones clan/family honour and other traditional aspects of "ancient" human traditions. This is done by striking those who have wronged you.. which was what 9/11 in its bare cold facts was... a strike at the supposed enemy of the bombers beliefs/politics.

    Remember also political correctness is the bullying of the powerful (not the many per say) of everyone else based on some set of beliefs (political, economic or religious). That is why you have a small minority in some countries bullying the rest to oppose gay rights for example.

    No, the bombers came from a society where it was acceptable to seek retribution, that is not political correctness, PC is seeking to minimise offense through moderation of behaviour. Political correctness is a business enforcing rules that employers use words like "foreperson" instead of "foreman" not a guy murdering blacks 'cause he thinks it's OK.

    No politically correctness is as you said to "minimise offence through moderation of behaviour". One way of doing that is to kill off the offending party, and that in it self would minimize future behaviour.. much like the burning of witches in the US and Europe. It was politically correct to punish girls and women who spoke out of place. As I stated there are many versions and ways to be "politically correct". In Germany for example during the Nazi's it was "politically correct" to turn in Jews. In the south of the US, it was "politically correct" to be as offensive to black people as possible and so on and so on. Politically correct does not have to be moderation of behaviour in a "good way".. can also be of a bad way... it is all in the eye of the beholder.
