Environment of Political Correctness

Political Correctness — A Rothschild Invention of Language Control


http://humansarefree.com/2016/02/political-correctness-rothschild.html

by Makia Freeman

Political correctness is a Rothschild invention of language control. Like the Orwellian Newspeak in 1984, its ultimate aim is to reduce the scope of free thought.

Political correctness is language control. And language control is thought control. Period. The rise of modern political correctness (PC) is a great example of the cunning way in which social engineers such as the New World Order manipulators operate.

Political correctness is soft censorship. It is intolerance disguised as tolerance. As George Carlin said, it is fascism pretending to be manners.

It is running amok not just in Universities but now almost everywhere in society. Just as Orwell laid out so precisely in 1984, political correctness is the Newspeak, which is threatening to limit our ability to freely speak and think, by reducing the number of available words in our vocabulary.

Political Correctness: Based on the Non-Existent “Right” to Not Be Offended

Truth is stranger than fiction. When you look at the twisted contortions the PC crowd is insisting people go through to rid their language of anything “offensive”, it has entered the theater of the absurd.

Political correctness dictates what you can and can’t say, based on how “offensive” a word is. Right off the bat there are several problems with this.

Firstly, who are the commissars, officials or authorities who are granting themselves massive power by getting to decide what ranks as “offensive”?

Secondly, since when did “feeling offended” or “having your feelings hurt” become such an important issue that it legally justifies restricting everyone’s freedom?

Last time I checked, freedom of speech was a genuine and legitimate human right (enshrined in the legal documents of many countries), whereas the “right to not feel offended” is imaginary and non-existent.

Thirdly – and most importantly – just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so too is “feeling offended” in the realm of the beholder.

Words are words; each person is in charge of their own emotions; choose to ignore, respond or react to words how you want, but don’t blame someone else for your emotional state.

You are in control of your own state of consciousness. To blame someone else because you feel angry, offended or upset shows an abandonment of responsibility and an utter lack of emotional and spiritual maturity.

Since when did we humans become such crybabies that we couldn’t stand hearing or being called a word, a name, a label or a phrase? Grow up, please!

Some great parts in this article:

Here is a chilling quote from Orwell's 1984:

“‘You haven’t a real appreciation of Newspeak, Winston,’ he said almost sadly … ‘In your heart you’d prefer to stick to Oldspeak, with all its vagueness and its useless shades of meaning. You don’t grasp the beauty of the destruction of words. Do you know that Newspeak is the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year?’

‘Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it …’”

George Carlin - Euphemisms.




In the age when torture has become "enhanced interrogation techniques"; when the rich are "job creators"; when murdered children are "collateral damage"; it is good to remember these brilliant words from the late, great, George Carlin. It is also good to remember that the phrase "Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder" has now been officially changed in American English to "PTSD", a totally lifeless non-threatening acronym, totally devoid of even pity and with an almost whiny feel to it.

Spot on

the globalists have vastly underestimated the masses

maybe the globalists should see psychiatrists to try to get their malignancy cured.  Or maybe they should take massive doses of the Big Pharma poisons they dole out to everyone else

What has this got to do with political correctness?
PTSD is an acronym. What is the issue with that?

The Right Wing only believe in free speech when they agree with what is being said.

You will learn to love Big Brother.

How about Gavin Schmidt, Director of NASA GISS?

"This range can be compared to an estimate from Jones et al (1999) (derived solely from surface observations) of 287.1±0.5 K for the 1961-1990 period. A correction for the different baselines suggests that for 1981-2010, Jones would also get 287.4±0.5K (14.3±0.5ºC, 57.7±0.9ºF)- in reasonable agreement with the reanalyses. NOAA NCEI uses 13.9ºC for the period 1901-2000 which is equivalent to about 287.5K/14.3ºC/57.8ºF for the 1981-2010 period, so similar to Jones and the average of the reanalyses."

"The basic point is that when adding two uncertain numbers, the errors add in quadrature i.e.

X\pm\delta x + Y\pm\delta y \approx (X+Y)\pm \sqrt{(\delta x)^2 + (\delta y)^2}

Most importantly, this means uncertainties can’t get smaller by adding other uncertain numbers to them (obvious right?). A second important rule is that we shouldn’t quote more precision than the uncertainties allow for. So giving 3 decimal places when the uncertainty is 0.5 is unwarranted, as is more than one significant figure in the uncertainty."

http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2017/08/observations-reanalyses-an...

No let's look at NOAA figures. -

"Global
Land      +1.12 ± 0.14      +2.02 ± 0.25      Warmest      4th      2016      +1.45      +2.61
Coolest      136th      1884      -0.62      -1.12
Ocean      +0.66 ± 0.16      +1.19 ± 0.29      Warmest      4th      2016      +0.76      +1.37
Coolest      136th      1909      -0.45      -0.81
Land and Ocean      +0.79 ± 0.15      +1.42 ± 0.27      Warmest      4th      2016      +0.95      +1.71
Coolest      136th      1908      -0.44      -0.79"

https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/global/201813


So NOAA can, apparently, determine global temperature to within 1/100th of a degree.

Not that I believe they can get as close as 0.5C.

The grey areas are those without temperature data.

Yep. But you haven't actually shown anything that I wrote to be wrong. Never mind petal.

I understand it. They use averaging to bring down the uncertainty. It is not correct. But you have your beliefs to keep you warm. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

They use the same methodology for satellite SLR figures. The sensors have an accuracy of 33mm, but the say they can get that down to 0.1mm. Wink
