. . .The PC police have been gradually eroding our freedom of speech for quite some time. If you say something taken out of context, regardless of the intent, then you can be nailed with sexual harassment...or branded as a racist, a homophobe, or a misanthrope-at-large. . . Society's response to the PC crackdown on offensive speech has been to just keep quiet.You're right. While tolerance of the views, beliefs and preferences of others may cause us to temper our own speech, it seems that this cautious approach has carried over to our reluctance to react to or comment on the un-PC speech of others. Seems like a 200-yr-old problem:"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. " - Edmund Burke (1729-1797)
