In my view political correctness is most definitely an establishment philosophy.

Makes me laugh, all those so called 'radicals' thought they were bringing down the government walls with all their micro-political issues, when in reality they were putting more bricks in and making them impregnable.

And the powers that be, no longer use or try to filter through divisive ideas on race, nationality, religion, gender, sexuality etc to attempt to divide us?

Ibs - who do you mean when you say 'establishment'? Is this government or politicians or some other group yet identified.

As usual, IBS makes some mad, illogical statement, doesn't present any evidence to back it up , and expacts us to make sense of it... probably better to stick to the football...why does this strange stuff always appear early on Sunday evenings?

I'm still laughing at the page 3 story.

Sister newspaper drops a hint that the Sun is dropping page 3 girls knowing that the usual PC suspects will jump in with both feet.

And lo and behold like Pavlov's dogs they oblige filling the media with the usual PC drivel we've heard so many times before.

Two days later Debbie from Dorking appears on page 3 fully reinstated with a great gnashing of teeth by the "activists", failed female politicians, bunny boilers and other bra burners.

Oh how those at the Sun must have laughed at the easy catch that gave them loads of free publicity.

Done up like a kipper XD

No brass gnat the strategy has changed. Genuine revolutionary politics based on the class struggle was becoming too much of a threat. In the late 60's Socialism was hijacked surreptitiously by people pursuing micro political agendas. The result being that the block of genuine class resistance was fractured. FeministMarxists were now at loggerheads with traditionalists as were gay and black Marxists. Rather than pursue the greater good of class struggle, which would ultimately benefit, gays, blacks and feminists, individual micro agendas were promoted which took away the threat of real Marxist revolution.

You are quite right that governments still use nationality etc to divide and conquer but this is usually targeted at the working class populists.

As Marx himself said the

You can trace the origin of political correctness in Britain to its base in the Christian Church. For many centuries our country acquired its core values from the Church. As our tie to the church eroded political figures with a background of faith found a need to substitute these core beliefs. They did so with what we call today, PC values.

Correct and as a consequence we have to endure the bilge of the evangelists of this new religion.
