Political Correctness Has Evolved into Comedy

By Robert Ringer

There is a fundamental misconception about dignity in our age of artificially created “rights.” Political-action groups love to babble about being treated with dignity, as though dignity were a right. But dignity is no more a right than love or friendship.

The reality is that no one can be forced to treat you with dignity. Through a variety of applied pressures, someone might feel that it’s in his best interest to pretend to treat you with dignity, but such false dignity breeds only hatred and resentment.

So-called political correctness is a perfect example of this, so much so that it has evolved from resentment to comedy. When a concept is no longer taken seriously, where’s the dignity?

Am I missing something?
