Correcting Political Correctness: A Better Way to Unite the USA

text size A A A

"What do we need in replacement of the faulty political correctness of today? Compassionate common sense. Acknowledge societal problems and solve them instead of putting a sugarcoated picture portraying conditions as better or worse than they actually are, as purported by political correctness."

Let's get things straight: Contrary to rumor, political correctness is not kind. Political correctness is not compassionate. Political correctness is, in fact, incorrect and harmful to minorities.

How are problems to be solved if they are constantly covered up by false perceptions purported by politically correct news reports? How are people to receive help if they are not acknowledged as living in bad conditions? Political correctness goes so far to not hurt people's feelings that it actually harms the groups that it "protects" in its media campaigns.

If someone has not received a balanced education, political correctness appears to be an expression of compassion and brotherly love. This perception is important to understand: People who are fixated on political correctness view it as a form of kindness. It is up to people who are more educated on this matter to help others understand that, after a point, political correctness is, in fact, incorrect and cruel.

Political correctness only promotes hypocrisy and false imagery. It lies. When facts are facts, we must not exclude them in order to promote an agenda because such an agenda is a bad form of propaganda. Instead, we must share the facts and do so with a desire to love and help people. Sharing the truth with love (and not a shove) is what we need to do.

Loving our neighbor includes speaking the truth in love while simultaneously acting out of love, grace, and truth. We need to heed Romans 13:8 (AMP): "Owe nothing to anyone except to love and seek the best for one another; for he who [unselfishly] loves his neighbor has fulfilled the [essence of the] law [relating to one's fellowman]."

When people lose sense of truth and grace, a lie invades and takes their place. We must replace political correctness with compassionate common sense. When that takes place, both minorities and majorities win by being treated equally in the sight of God, in whose image we all have been created. Political correctness sugarcoats life and pretends that society experiences better conditions that it actually possesses. With God's help, we can change this and improve conditions in our country.
