Saul Bellow Quote

“Open discussion of many major public questions has for some time now been taboo. We can’t open our mouths without being denounced as racists, misogynists, supremacists, imperialists or fascists. As for the media, they stand ready to trash anyone so designated.”

~ Saul Bellow

Aha! Political correctness (PC) rears its ugly face, which has two despicable sides - ignorance and arrogance.

I find it to be very true. Anyone and everyone is ready to point a finger but I find it's just projection

Oh, this is rich... the man who writes against teaching science talking of ignorance & arrogance... and he thinks others are fools, it would be funny if it were not so scary!

Except now in the 21st century, the media simply acts as the government's censor and PR firm.

I'm not sure if I support political correctness as public policy, but I don't see the harm in setting such a standard for myself.

10 stars if possible.

The true far left of socialism at work. Just turn on the TV or public radio stations.

By today's standards, Saul Bellow would have to be a racist. Everyone else is.

One Thousand stars and thumbs up!

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

Any who reflexly resort to the use of the denigratory epithets enumerated by Mr. Bellow reveal, by their doing so, the fragility
of their belief systems and accordant world views.
