In recent years, politically correct or ‘PC’ culture has accelerated beyond mere rhetorical and debate, and has now manifested in physical action and brute force. America’s present war on statues’ initiated by Black Lives Matter activists is a contemporary example of this phenomenon. These new canons ‘correct thought’ are now governing social interactions and civic life. However, it seems that very few of those engaged in this new culture war have little any sense of history beyond a collection emotive sound bites and slogans, packaged within an increasingly narrow band of racially-charged discourse. This renewed form of secular religion is threatening to kill-off constructive dialogue in crucial areas such as education, industry, politics and media – as people increasingly cower in fear at the prospect of feeling judged or blamed.
