There are two words that are recently used a lot by many people - political correctness. We see almost everyday news coming up in social media with lots of comments that argue about PC.
Even though "political correctness is language … measures intended to avoid offence or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society", it certainly affects many other people badly - people feel discredited, labelled and even punished, which mostly happens in form of silencing and censoring that we often encounter under free speech. We could say that there is a vague line between political correctness and free speech just like there is between free speech and hate speech. Personally, I have always tried to defend free speech while trying to avoid offensive words and defending consequences that people should bear in specific cases. In most cases, I have always prioritized to understand the underdog, the marginalised, the "suppressed". But I see recently, political correctness has been used as a manipulative tool to design a specific society that has an intolerant tendency and therefore creates an "another" suppressed group. A group that has unfortunately adopted the self-prevention, which expands the free speech of "some", while silencing "the self"…
I would like to know what Honest community think about PC and ask specifically:
Do you think that political correctness is being used today as a manipulative tool?
Can it really be "the correct" when there is a "political" word inside?
Something to think about…………
Dishonesty is an effective strategy used to fool people every day. From sophisticated social engineering efforts like the attacks on BCH in social media and the Fox News Networks assault on many truths to the U.S. President's obvious dishonesty, The People of the world are under attack on many fronts. I have been awed recently as I realized how effective dishonesty can be.
Though emperor-Bitcoin-BTC is wearing no cloths (lacks fundamentals), many people still think it is the real "Bitcoin". A huge effort to fool people into thinking this has been so effective, even on a BCH-focused site like HC, most of the people who read this may think I am the foolish one. Of course all sides of most issues tend to do it, so, maybe I am falling for a different set of lies? Kinda like freedom is never free and must be worked for constantly, I think truth requires a similar ongoing effort to be discovered and fought for.
Thanks for considering my ideas,

Re-education and Development
Arise youth, sing once more our nations' song
Echo with melodious notes of amber dawn's breeze;
Approach the time, congregate and recede,
Cling tight the cause which woke us, to Mother's soil throng.
Quicken the Arms, tuck in close the old page of Jo'anna,
Wrest her hopeful lines from the soiled hands of the glossy mandated;
Reconcile her boldness, for long so dastardly truncated
Clutch the last grains for the press, our Sacred Manna.
To bring them to that dusty field in '55, tore flesh from limbs
Day from night, are swollen tics in cuffs and suits
Chalk from gold, are roaches in servitude on knees bent.
Age and again, words shall from whispers rise unto a People's din
Hopes' ideas surface from our deepest human truth
Her weighty lines borne as life water, cautiously on faithful necks.

Regarding free speech, my previous post on Honest Cash was about freedom of expression and censorship focusing on J.S. Mill's arguments. In that post, I had mentioned Mill's Harm Principle and how a hate speech could be argued around the principle. In this post, I would like to make reference to Holocaust denial in the context of freedom of expression. The reason why I wanted to write about is a n...
According to Washington Post, the US said it took the measure because the West African nation is not cooperating in taking back its deported nationals.
A Department of Homeland Security statement said Ghana “has denied or unreasonably delayed accepting their nationals ordered from the United States.”
The statement issued Thursday said Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo “has ordered consular offic...

In my last post, I wrote about free speech and censorship by focusing on J.S. Mill. This time I wanted to be more personal as it would also give me the chance to tell you where I come from.
I am coming from Turkey, a country that consists of several different ethnic groups such as Kurds, Armenians, Greek, Jews, Assyrians (no...
Since 2016, it appears the world is realigning politically. Nationalism is on the rise across the West, and creeping authoritarianism is eroding democracy. Populism is afflicting much of the Western world and this is coming from both the left and the right. Failings of government in Latin America are heralding problems across the continent is producing misery in many countries. In the Middle East ...
Yesterday, the British parliament rejected Theresa May’s brexit deal by a majority of 230. From my understanding this was the biggest defeat for a government ever. The defeat that comes closest in the 1920s or so.
Theresa May’s deal basically aims to keep the status quo until a comprehensive trade deal can be negotiated with the EU. The area with most sticking point is the ‘backstop’ ...
A well documented side-effect of social media is the existence of the 'echo chamber'. This occurs because we tend to follow people who align with our views, reinforcing our existing biases. Furthermore, social media websites suggest news stories you are likely to click on.
Echo chambers mean that we live in different realities to those which exist. Everything on "the other side" is considered fa...
I'm at odds, on this desolate cold shore
How shall I my Self sustain, this far away
Immense green sea lapping at my bare feet
White cold gales gnawing into a rotting heart.
By a faceless hand a brother's coat appears
Adorns a warm weight around my shoulders
Stalls a million quivering questions to recede
The salty suds returnin fading into the bl...
I just called one of my Senators and left a voicemail telling them we must defeat aging. I mentioned that he should attempt to increase public funding available to organizations like SENS Research Foundation, Methuselah Foundation, and Life Extension Advocacy Foundation.
I called one of my Senators and requested that he read the book Ending Aging by Aubrey de Grey and Michael Rae, and that he do...
The Case for Social Conservatism, Part 2: Choose wisely
The characteristics of sexually successful males will reflect on the potential of the next generation. If women choose poorly in their sexual lives, humanity will suffer. These choices have , until recently, been the domain of fathers choosing for their daughters. It was acknowledged that women are not reliable in their judgment of potentia...
If conservatism were to be argued, it would often be given its case on the basis of either tradition or religion. The Religious argument given on the foundation of biblical or Koranic texts, while the traditional on the basis of the reliability of old ways over new. Either case, regardless of its apparent sense, can be disregarded by its critics. Neither will convince someone who is apostate and ...
I remember when the term “compassionate conservative” was introduced, or at least when it was introduced to me, maybe 15 to 20 years ago. In retrospect it seems what was really meant was “mildly compassionate conservatives” or “sort of compassionate conservatives”. What is being presented in this short piece is theory and opinion, and potentially subject to change and refinement.
Perhaps it is j...
Is there a burden on society to “protect” adults who are planning to end their own life on Earth? That burden is manufactured and morally deficient. That burden probably ultimately prevents us from actually reducing suicides, and probably worsens suicide rates since suicide prohibitions make it not possible for many individuals to talk about suicide openly and honestly with any potential helpers i...
As long as we use our oppressor’s language they will continue to live through us, to free ourselves from injustice we must also free ourselves from their language. It is an unfortunate truth that declaring, “I am not a racist” is a racist statement. Some etymologically correct ways of making this declaration are “I am not an ethnic discriminator”, “I do not ethnically discriminate” or “science doe...
