A 2018 study in the US reported that a large majority of Americans believe that “political correctness is a problem in our country.”[1]

“"Political correctness" affects many academic disciplines. Like all tyrannical ideologies, it masquerades as concern for the underdog but supports the rise of a new overdog. While seeming to promote multiculturalism, it denies genetic variety among human beings and forbids analysis of what kinds of human are (temporarily) favoured by the peculiar conditions of human life today. This buries the urgent need of some peoples to enjoy protection from the ravages of Western imperialism. If we are all the same, the argument goes, we all deserve to "enjoy" the benefits of Western ways of life.”
Ivo Mosley (2013)  [2]
