    A most useful topic for Alex to address:

    Why the exception PROVES The Rule.

    So many people seem to ignore the Rule about RACE – White is RIGHT – by pointing to an exception, like their Magic Negro Friend, their Good Buddy from work, and use him (or her) to entirely invalidate the idea of RACE as anything more than ephemera.

    Question: A lot of people seem to associate Political Correctness (PC) with Chaiman Mao; but if the term is actually Stalinist, does the nuance of the Russian language carry any irony the way the English construction qualifier-absolute does?

    I don’t think there’s irony anywhere in PC. Certainly not in Russian. They killed people who were incorrect. In America people sometimes chortle when using PC but that is because they don’t understand how deep and dangerous it is – gunpoint semantic demands issuing from a murderous cult.

    You are right that “political correctness” is a dangerous concept, but isn’t there an underlying sarcasm in the term itself? A statement is either correct or incorrect. To qualify its correctness is to affirm its actual incorrectness. In other words, “politically correct” says “not really correct, but accepted anyway to appease certain political interest groups.”
