Political Correctness Is Saying To People Yes
what you’re saying may be factually correct, but it is inconvenient to the party line. It is politically incorrect and that is one of the reasons that I’ve been so troubled by many of the developments we’ve seen in the Western world in recent times, Constantine Kissing welcome to the show it’s good to be back Man Jordan Peterson and Dave Rubin are banned from twitter what’s going on well nothing new there really it’s just they’re more of the same. I think no it I was talking to with my co-host for trigonometry Francis about this in the studio today and I was saying, Can you imagine that they’ve we’ve got to a point where to to state a historical fact about someone’s biography is now a crime essentially it’s at least in twitter’s eyes you’re going to get banned from a social media platform for stating historical fact about an individual which is what both Jordan and Dave have done here and I think it speaks to the situation that we’re in which is the ideology behind all of this has just become so perverse and has been allowed to run a mock so far that we live in this clown world and unless Elon Musk is able to take over and change some of this. I don’t I don’t really see how how we’re going to get out of. Do you think Twitter is that important as a is it still the town square for public discourse.
I Do Think That And Of Course
you could say well only whatever percent of the public even in Western countries or on Twitter, and it’s true, but then that is where the discourse happens because most people aren’t on Twitter because they don’t want to be part of the discourse. They actually have you know jobs and kids and and things they actually want to achieve in their life. Instead of getting angry with each other. So I do think it’s the public square and I do think it’s really important and I also think it’s essential that correct principles are modeled in the space because the sort of high culture discourse then leaks out into the rest of society and you see it you know in my former career of. Comedy people now happily getting up in the middle of a gig and shouting stuff at comedians not in the old way where it used to be a sort of heckling and battling and that used to be fun.
I Released You Enjoy That But Its
like no they’ll go to complain to the people who run the club afterwards and demand that this comedian is never allowed to perform. So it I think the sort of behavior that’s modeled in this type of public square is actually really important and of course the rules they impose then get filtered down to other areas as well and other people feel well. You know if Twitter’s going to shut these people down well. We’re allowed to shut them down in real life would they you know not invite them to speak or ban them from speaking and so on so I. Do think it’s really really important actually yeah, so the culture of censorship on Twitter has more downstream impacts.
Perhaps One Of The Interesting Things Now Is
that tweets become news right previously people were tweeting about things that happened in the news, but now the news can be derived from what people tweeted. So there’s this very sort of cyclical game, so just for the people that haven’t seen it the actual tweet that Dave got suspended for there’s a difference between a suspension and a ban. The ban is if you would I think being completely removed from Twitter a suspension. You have to do this kind of struggle session where you admit that the tweet was wrong and delete the tweet and acknowledge the fact that the tweet broke terms of service, but Dave’s tweet was um the insanity continues at Twitter Jordan Peterson has been suspended. For this tweet about Ellen page he just told me he will never delete the tweet paging at Elon Musk and the warning from Twitter says you may not promote violence against threatening the people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability or serious disease, and that was enough to get dave a strike yeah and there’s a couple of points.
I Pick Up There The First One
is you talk about the struggle session. It’s a really good reference because you’re talking about of course Soviet Union and China and this is exactly you know one of the things I talk about in the book. I know we’ll get on to it. Later is how Soviet some of some of the things that we are now doing are because this is exactly what used to happen in the Soviet. Union if you wanted to if you made some kind of faux pas and you were not politically correct enough again as you know I talk about the origins of political correctness in the book, Then what you would have to do is you’d have to publicly come out and say Aye comrade kisen operated you know and you’d have to give this whole speech about how you you’d messed up and this is what they make you do.
They Make You Sort Of Admit That
you’ve done something wrong instead of just you know even just punishing you for breaking their rules Even if as in this case, I I don’t think there’s any credible evidence that Dave Rubin was inciting violence or hatred towards somebody by using a name that person used to use until about three seconds ago, So dead naming is it seems like the thing. that Dave’s been popped for there yeah well clearly and I it’s funny to me as well because I don’t know if you saw this obviously you and the us now but in the Uk we have these sort of supposed conservative parliamentarians. They banned protesting too loud in public and one of the ministers tweeted about it saying Finally, we’ve put an end to the violent speech of Blah Blah Blah and this was somebody was just using a megaphone in public right so even the conservatives are buying into all this because once you accept the words of violence. This is an inevitable consequence. If you buy into this completely nonsensical dogma.
The Words Are Actual Violence Then Of
course, you know we we do have laws and rules that are aimed to prevent and regulate violence and so you’re gonna end up regulating people’s speech what was. The origin of political correctness? The origin of political correctness We’ve basically already covered, which is it was created in the Soviet Union and then later used in Maoist China and the purpose of it never had anything to do with politeness with being respectful with being kind with not offending people. It had one purpose and one purpose only Chris, which was to ensure that the political party line of the Communist party was enforced. In terms of how people spoke and behaved. Political correctness is saying to people yes what you’re saying may be factually correct, but it is inconvenient to the party line.
It Is Politically Incorrect And That Is
one of the reasons that I’ve been so troubled by many of the developments we’ve seen in the Western world in recent times because they’re not coming from nowhere we’ve tried these things before and they come. from a very specific place and have a very specific meaning and they have very specific consequences. A lot of similar themes between your new book and Douglas Murray’s most recent one. What do you think you two are both converging on there. I don’t know I think Douglas is a very impressive man.
Im A Huge Admirer Of His
and always have been and honored like you to have had him on our show many times. I think that he’s one of the few people in in the western intellectual world. Who who is born here and grew up here, who nonetheless has access to the rest of the world and so he’s able to look at what’s happening in the western context. Whereas many people in the west just think that the way the world has always been the way it is currently in in 21st century America. and Britain and other Anglo-sphere countries Douglas for for reasons I’m sure due to his extent, you know the fact that he’s well read and traveled and so on, he’s able to appreciate how unique what we have is and how unusual it is and so when he sees it being destroyed denigrated and attacked as I do I think that’s when he starts to realize this is a problem about which he needs to speak and I feel probably it’s easier for me.
- media platform stating historical
- behaved political correctness saying
- political correctness book publicly
- political correctness saying people yes
- fact biography crime essentially twitter
You Know I Havent Had To
read nearly as many books or think about it nearly as carefully he as he has because of where I come from you know growing up in in the late Soviet Union hearing stories of my family and what they went through. You know my grandmother being born in a gulag another you know her or down my mother’s side. grandmother living through the Holodomor in Ukraine watching her brother starve to death because they were politically you know the wrong type of people being exiled to Siberia. Like all of the stuff you know it. I just see a context and we have a saying in Russian everything is understood in context.
I Think People In The West And
this is why I really wanted to write the book. Don’t appreciate just how brilliant the world is and I talk in the book by the way about things that I think are wrong in in 21st-century Anglo–sphere countries. You know the book is called an immigrant’s love letter to the west, but more accurately it should be an immigrant’s love letter to the Anglo-sphere not quite as catchy, but you know that’s what I think is going on this this ideology that we’re seeing is particularly infected Anglo-sphere. I I think it’s because of these ideas come from the English-speaking world and they’ve really landed very hard.
Particularly I Think With Younger People Um
and that I’m afraid. I think it’s just a lack of context which Douglas has and I hope I have as well that I’m able to share with people. Do you think that there’s maybe a part of the reason why it’s landed a little bit more hard in the Us than in the Uk because in my experience having spent a good bit of time in the U. s.
Theres A Lot Of People Here
that have never been outside of the country now in the Uk that would be pretty rare. Now maybe you’ve only ever been to Majorca or Cyprus or Benidorm or something but at least you’ve seen people that drive on the other side of the road or use different. than you or different metrics of measurement than you or anything. It’s a lot less myopic when it comes to a world view and anybody that spent a modicum of time traveling around the world.
Simply Has To See That There Are Wild
variations in the quality of life that you could live. It’s an interesting point. I’m wary of of the point you’re making even though I do agree with it because I we we do a lot of America bashing here in Britain and I actually I’m.
