Award-winning American author and opinion writer Lionel Shriver delivered this year’s JBL lecture. She eviscerated the modern-day obsession with identity politics, political correctness and the hypersensitivities of the #MeToo movement that are threatening creativity. The John Bonython Lecture is the annual Gala event for the Centre for Independent Studies. Designed to advance the principles of free choice, individual liberty, defend cultural freedom and the open exchange of ideas – this year’s lecture was no different. Shriver’s breakout novel We Need to Talk About Kevin has sold over 1 million copies and was made into a feature film starring Tilda Swinton.

From Freudian pseudo-psychology to Boasian pseudo-anthropology to the domination of the global "mainstream" media, this film documents the rise of "political correctness" and demonstrates how it is a manifestation of the Jewish "will to power".
This film features E. Michael Jones and Kevin MacDonald.
Big Think: Slavoj Žižek: Political Correctness is a More Dangerous Form of Totalitarianism
Slavoj Žižek doesn't buy into political correctness. In fact, it frightens him. The famed philosopher and social critic describes political correctness as a tacit form of totalitarianism, an act of coercion built upon the premise that "I know better than you what you really want."
This isn't to say that people should be allowed to go around treating others poorly, but Žižek argues that employing coercion and scare tactics to instill a state of forced behavior completely missed the point. To Žižek, the kinds of obscenity targeted by political correctness are much more effective at breeding a sense of shared solidarity than most alternatives.
Transcript: Of course I have nothing against the fact that your boss treats you in a nice way and so on. The problem is if this not only covers up the actual relationship of power but makes it even more impenetrable. You know, if you have a boss who is up there, the old fashioned boss shouting at you, exerting full brutal authority. In a way it’s much easier to rebel than to have a friendly boss who embraces you or how was the last night with your girlfriend, blah, blah, all that buddy stuff. Well then it almost appears impolite to protest. But I will give you an example, an old story that I often use to make it clear what do I mean by this. Imagine you or me, I’m a small boy. It’s Sunday afternoon. My father wants me to visit our grandmother. Let’s say my father is a traditional authority. What would he be doing? He would probably tell me something like I don’t care how you feel, it’s your duty to visit your grandmother. Be polite to her and so on. Nothing bad about this I claim because I can still rebel and so on. It’s a clear order.
But what would the so called post-modern non-authoritarian father do? I know because I experienced it. He would have said something like this. You know how much your grandmother loves you but nonetheless I’m not forcing you to visit her. You should only visit her if you freely decide to do it. Now every child knows that beneath the appearance of free choice there is a much stronger pressure in this second message. Because basically your father is not only telling you you must visit your grandmother but you must love to visit it. You know he tells you how you must feel about it. It’s a much stronger order. And I think that this is for me almost a paradigm of modern permissive authority. This is why the formula of totalitarianism is not – I don’t care what you think, just do it. This is traditional authoritarianism. The totalitarian formula is I know better than you what you really want and I may appear to be forcing you to do it but I’m really just making you do what without fully knowing what you want and so on. So in this sense yes, I am horrified by this. Also another aspect this new culture of experts where an injunction is presented just as a neutral statement.
For example, one example that I like and let’s not have a misunderstanding here. I don’t smoke and I’m for punishing tobacco companies and so on and so on. But I’m deeply suspicious about our phobia about smoking. I don’t buy it that this can be really justified just based on scientific knowledge how cigarettes hurt us and so on and so on. Because my first problem is that most of the people who oppose smoking then usually are for legalization of grass and so on and so on. But my basic problem is this one. Look, now they found a more or less solution – e-cigarettes, electronic cigarettes. And I discovered that now big American airline companies decided to prohibit them. And it’s interesting to read the reason why. The reason is not so much that it’s not yet sure are they safe or not. Basically they are. The idea is that if you smoke during the flight e-cigarette you publicly display your addiction and that is not a good pedagogical example for others and so on and so on. [transcript truncated]

Of all the politically correct games, this one takes the cake! This video is also an insightful history lesson.

Shouldn't I get some good-guy points for that?"
Pat Buchanan: "If you're not called some names...you probably haven't said anything very much worthwhile...racist, sexist, homophobe they're all the same thing, they're synonyms for heretic, & what I am is a heretic to the conventional wisdom as it moves further & further Left."

As relevant today as it has ever been, this is an interesting documentary that examines the history of political correctness, it's weaponization and effect on freedom of speech. Overlaps with and complements nicely the Yuri Bezmenov videos. Well worth a watch.
Bobo has a spectacular Fourth of July party planned, but will the rest of the Compassion Crusaders attend?
Goddamn Ukuleles is a satirical, grittily hand-drawn animation series. Episodes focus on the Community Compassion Center- a cult of cuddly creatures that care just a little too much. I will be creating other content and cartoons as this channel grows. Hit like and subscribe, I really appreciate it!
[Verse 1] I know that you've got opinions But won't you consider this, Your skin tone opresses millions So just quiet down a bit Come join me in gender studies Come get a useless degree And when you make garbage money Take no responsibility
[Chorus] Come be PC, Come be PC Things are so splendid When you're offended Take it from me
We're fighting for progress, can't you see? Silencing all who might disagree So, respectfully Be a crybully Come be PC
[Verse 2] Come join us in our safe spaces Our shelters from points of view And maybe on rare occasions We'll let you think something new But if we deem your thoughts toxic We might have to shut you down And if you critique our logic Better use our preferred pronouns
[Chorus] Come be PC, Come be PC Our low key racism Is heroism Obviously
Let's all fight for the little guy From our parent's mansions online Come join our prison Look what you're missin' Come be PC
Come be PC We're a collective Varied perspectives Must go unseen
Different opinions are okay As long as they're different in the same way Come join our cult It's not difficult Oh, come be PC
[Chorus] Ooooh, Come be PC, Come be PC Freedom of speech is Simply not needed I guarantee
As long as everyone agrees We will live in perfect harmony That's what I'm sellin' Ain't it compellin'? Come be PC
No more mansplaining No victim blaming Come be PC
No problematic Words to cause panic No more traumatic Facts wreaking havoc Minds going rabid Come be PC
I know I am going to get flack somewhere down the line for the video. But I will take that risk. I will risk never being able to traditionally publish my book and maybe never seeing it on the shelf to exercise my right to free speech.
There are just too many people talking about the "positive effects of PC Culture" in literature and too many people FRIGHTENED to talk about the negatives. I realize that PC Culture means well, but I fear the results could be dire for literature and storytelling.
I realized after the fact that I may not have gone into enough depth on the things he said. I was so familiar with his thoughts that not a lot stood out to me, and that's a failure on my part. I will try to be more thorough when talking about him in the videos that follow.
Chris Matthews Forced To Apologize For Comparing Executive Privilege To Losing Your Virginity
Things got awkward on Wednesday’s Hardball amidst the liberal media-wide meltdown over Attorney General Bill Barr’s Senate testimony when, during an interview with Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), host Chris Matthews compared the use of executive privilege to losing one’s virginity. Needless to say, Harris appeared visibly uncomfortable and so Matthews apologized a few minutes later. Matthews arrived at this NSFW comparison by talking about the discussion of having former White House counsel Don McGahn testify and Barr’s insistence that he might not be able to do so via Trump invoking executive privilege.

Kevin Myers: There's a lack of tolerance to alternative opinions — PC culture has gone too far
Kevin Myers will be taking speaking at the Castlecoote House Lectures with a series of talks he is calling "The Dictatorship of The Timid".
Myers says western societies have created a very narrow space in the road where all opinion must exist and if your opinion is not in that space, you are simply shut down.
Last year in an article on the so-called "gender pay gap" in the Sunday Times, Myers complimented and attributed the business acumen of Jewish people to his claim that that Claudia Winkleman and Vanessa Feltz were the two best paid TV presenters at the BBC.
Shortly after the article was published, he was accused of anti-antisemitism and misogyny and was fired from his job. He hasn't written for a newspaper since and blames the PC culture and the online mob. You can read his article here: http://i.imgur.com/4DClqVj.jpg

Who's Apologizing Today? - PC Is Trampling The First Amendment Video (12 second lead in) Thursday May 31, 2018 Ron Paul and Chris Rossini What do you think authoritarians, who want everyone to obey their will, would prefer more? A nation of free thinking individuals, guided by their own beliefs, opinions and desires? Or a nation of people who can't detect truth, and who don't know what they're 'allowed' to think, or 'allowed' to say? Which would rulers prefer? Ron Paul discusses the mental prison known as Political-Correctness. http://www.ronpaullibertyreport.com/archives/whos-apologizing-today-pc-is-trampling-the-first-amendment http://ronpaulinstitute.org/

I've seen this collective apathy in all ages, not only the young. Humanity is infected. Otherwise I totally agree. It is division and lack of compassion that is causing this soul rot. Guns aren't the problem. Lack of compassion and this entitlement attitude is the problem.
