‘Great disease’ of correctness

By VICKI WESTLING , Observer Today

"We call it 'Political Correctness.' The name originates as something of a joke, literally in a comic strip, and we tend still to think of it as only half-serious. In fact, it's deadly serious. It is the great disease of our century, the disease that has left tens of millions of people dead in Europe, in Russia, in China, indeed around the world. It is the disease of ideology. PC is not funny. PC is deadly serious." This is a quote from an article written in 2000 by Bill Lind, "Accuracy in Academia."
