Where Did Political Correctness Come From? by The Elephant's Child

This is not a recent video, it was published in 2012, but unfortunately political correctness has only gotten worse, so perhaps a look at the origins will help a little. Reject it. Don’t let them get away with it. Insist on honest language about real things.

I ‘m sure that much is related to a simple lack of understanding of ordinary human nature. Families have trouble getting along. Immediate families – brothers and sisters. Simple recognition of that very real fact should lead to a recognition that government works best at the local level, school boards and city councils. The county level gets a little more difficult, as bureaucracy grows. By the time you get to Washington D.C. the bureaucracy is immense, and our ability to be heard is minuscule. Dividing the people up into categories simplifies a way of thinking about them.  Think Hillary’s “Deplorables.” And the Left’s insistence on “white privilege”, “racists”, “#Me too”, and today, “nationalist”.  Putting people into imaginary groupings means you don’t have to deal with real problems or real people.
