In his essay yesterday, “Resisting 21st Century Communism”, Fjordman examined the emergence of transnational politically correct Multiculturalism, and the parallels between this noxious ideology and Communism, and its origins in 20th-century socialism.
In the comments, Ypp left a series of thesis/antithesis pairs that highlight the fundamental contradictions inherent in Multiculturalism and political correctness.
I’ve reworded and reorganized them a bit, but the list below is still Ypp’s handiwork.
The Ten Antitheses of Political Correctness
|1.||Materialism is not about matter, but about suppressing ideas.|
|2.||Communism is not about common wealth, but about depriving people of any personal possessions.|
|3.||Socialism is not about society, but about depriving people of the means of production.|
|4.||Human rights are not personal rights, but collective obligations.|
|5.||Tolerance is not about mutual respect, but about the prohibition of opinions.|
|6.||Multiculturalism is not about cultures, but about the repudiation of nationhood.|
|7.||Energy policy is not about the distribution of energy, but about cutting off energy supplies.|
|8.||Health care is not about health, but about control of our consumption.|
|9.||Family planning is not about families, but about abortions.|
|10.||Self-loathing is not about repentance, but about depriving others of their moral foundation.|
Whenever they start by improving something, they finish by depriving people of it.
