I notice you're cut out the earlier communication, where you
informed me that the only person you ever heard about PC from was me.
That was why, you said, you needed me to explain it to you. When called
on it, you now say of course you've heard of it, you just to quibble
This reminds me of my dialogue with Finsten. She kept implying
that every authority today agrees with her on race.
I've been out of this game for a while, but I remembered that a friend
of mine, Carleton Coon, was "persuaded" to resign from his chairmanship
of a if if not the big national anthropological association because he
commited heresy on race. As I told you, anthropology changes its
stand on race pretty regularly, but it's always Politically Correct. I
figured Finsten might be right: by now all the heretics had been weeded
So I started pointing how this could have happened. I pointed out how
all the heretics could have crushed by now. When she was called on
this, Finsten popped up with a list of names of authorities who did NOT
agree with her. But if she hadn't been called on it, she would have
stayed hiddne behind the "all authorities agree" stuff you PC's have
used for two generations now.
Everything you people say involves some form of Doublethink, as
anything must which is to remain Politically Correct. I dig for that
Doublethink and I don't get pulled off into blind alleys and quibbles.
I leave it to the reader to see what's going on.
