Political correctness puts you in a box and forces you to become something you were not meant to be. Your desire to be accepted and to please others takes precedence over common sense. You say things you know will not produce the desired outcome, but you do them anyway because it is not the right thing to, but the thing that pleases.
Political correctness will make you temporal friends, bring you momentary victories and temporal riches, but in the grand scheme of things, you will suffer a greater loss.
Any business that will last has to identify and eradicate political correctness. Any country that will survive has to the deal a fatal blow to political correctness. The stakes are too high and the damage can be devastating and humiliating. Therefore we cannot afford to be politically correct!
What is dear to you will influence your decision making especially when you are under pressure to decide between seemingly complex and challenging decisions. The complexity of every situation is intensified by your desire, not the situation itself. Your desires will cloud your judgment and if you are not careful you will make the wrong choice. What drives you? The following "disaster" would have been prevented if Pilate had refused to be politically correct; his discussion with those accusing an innocent man went like this:
Pilate, therefore, wishing to release Jesus, again called out to them. But they shouted, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!”
Then he said to them the third time, “Why, what evil has He done? I have found no reason for death in Him. I will, therefore chastise Him and let Him go.”
But they were insistent, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And the voices of these men and of the chief priests prevailed.
So Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they requested. And he released to them the one they requested, who for rebellion and murder had been thrown into prison; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
Political correctness will destroy you eventually if you do not fight and defeat it!
The first against political correctness starts with you knowing who you are and being comfortable in your own skin. Why do you need to please everybody in order to be happy? You do not need to join the crowd if you know who you are. Never forget that you are unique and do not need to be approved by anybody. You are fearfully and wonderfully made as well and nobody can be you or take what is yours.
