Think beyond

One of the highly debated topics in recent times is whether we have taken political correctness way too far. But before writing anything on this title, it is important to know the definition of Political Correctness.
Political Correctness (or simple PC) includes a collection of certain policies, measures, rules, etc., aimed at preventing all sorts of offensive behavior and disadvantage on a particular section of the society. It prevents issues like marginalizing a particular caste/section of the society based on their sex, skin color, occupation, wealth, education, etc. 


One thing you should keep in mind that Political Correctness is a tool for totalitarianism and authoritarianism. But people started using the tool just the opposite way, i.e., using it as a tool for promoting cultural wars. When this tool is used improperly, it gives birth to narrow-minded self-interest drove people. Today, Political Correctness is being used for ugly uses, like using it as a tool for causing intolerance to facilitate diversity in speech and opinion. PC culture was supposed to represent the voice of the economically backward and oppressed sections of the society. Still, instead, it has evolved to become a tool of bullying and discrimination.
Yes, Political Correctness has gone way too far. At the present rate, it’ll soon be termed as a closer alt-right sympathizer. The use of the digital world has further worsened the situations, where the various social media platforms are being used to promote intolerance by simply using the phrase “I’m Offended” followed by an irrational statement. 
To support this statement, I’ll add one of Stephen Fry’s quote, which goes like- “It’s now very common to hear people say, ‘I’m rather offended by that’. As if that gives them certain rights. It’s nothing more than a whine. ‘I find that offensive’, it has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase”.
It’s never late to start afresh. Change the way you see the world, and the world is already a better place with values like equity and equality.
