Theodore DalrymplePolitical correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.””Theodore Dalrymple
Hannes Hofbauer“The current right is green. It combines all the necessary ingredients for this: enthusiasm for war, cancel culture, geopolitical and cultural missionary zeal, affinity for the authoritarian state and a lot of created enemy images. The term fascism is inappropriate for them, because it contained the promise of a common people's body with corresponding isolation from the outside, coupled with an emphasis on racial superiority. The opposite is the case with the new right. It itself says what it stands for: cosmopolitanism and the emphasis on the superiority of its values form a toxic mixture with which internal repression and external expansion are justified.”Hannes HofbauerApril 2023
