      The PC movement, of course, is meant to shackle fee speech by banning personal insults ONLY against certain people or favored interest groups. This sort of selective censorship is the sort of populace grooming tactic employed in Orwell’s “1984”. Which I recently re-read to be able to discuss it when my son was assigned the novel.

      It is this sort of censorship of speech and ideas that makes up today’s modern university education.
