Inoculating Our Children Against Political Correctness

This is talk I delivered at the second annual Freedom School conference, held in Calgary earlier this year:

Political Correctness: mind-shackles from within

Last year, at the 1st annual Essentials of Freedom conference, I spoke about the difference between speech limits being imposed from the outside of oneself versus from within oneself:  I used the examples of my childhood in behind-the-iron-curtain Czechoslovakia (limits imposed from the outside) versus living in present-day Canada (limits imposed from within by political correctness).

This is why I found it particularly interesting to listen to the former President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, making the same point!

He also used the example of the pre-velvet-revolution Czechoslovakia, but he contrasted it with the modern Czech Republic…sad, so sad…but an interesting speech nonetheless!

This is a perfect example of speech codes (Political Correctness) in action:  it is doing what it has been designed to do.

And yes, PC speak and speech codes are not an accidental by-product of some peoples’ desire to be uber nice.  No, not at all.  This was a specifically designed tool of Cultural Marxism, one purpose of which (among others) was to get people to pay more attention to the way things were expressed in speech than the substance of what was being said.

If  you are unfamiliar with Cultural Marxism, I recommend a guest-post here by CodeSlinger a while back.

Long story short:  for way too many of our ‘intellectuals’, using the correct buzzwords will get them to completely miss the substance of the message…

Milankovich cycles forcing climate change

Interesting new science coming out about how the 20, 40 and 100 thousand year Milankovich cycles have been forcing climate change:

‘Today Earth is affected by fluctuations called the Milankovich cycles. There are three different Milankovich cycles, and they occur each 20,000, 40,000 and 100,000 years. Over the last one million years these cycles have caused ice ages every 100,000 years, and right now we are in the middle of a warming period that has so far lasted 11,000 years.

“Earth’s climate history is complex. With this research we can show that cycles like the Milankovich cycles were at play 1.4 billion years ago – a period, we know only very little about”, says Donald Canfield, adding:

“This research will also help us understand how Milankovitch cyclicity ultimately controls on Earth.”

In the new scientific paper in the journal PNAS, the researchers report both geochemical and sedimentological evidence for repeated, short-term fluctuations 1.4 billion years ago. For example the fossilized sediments show how layers of organic material differed over time, indicating cycle changes in wind patterns, rain fall and ocean circulations.’

Perhaps we could slow this climate change if our governments were to impose crippling ‘Milankovich cycle taxes’!!!
