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!
