More recently, conservative political theorist Angelo Codevilla noted that “the point of political correctness is not and has never been merely about any of the items that it imposes, but about the imposition itself.”
Political correctness has everything to do with hindering freedom of speech—and ultimately freedom of thought.
Political correctness is about preventing unification on the basis of shared values and culture.
Political correctness is really about political goals.
