In a recent conversation, I was told by someone that he didn’t trust Democrats, because, although they may appear to speak in a politically correct manner, this does not necessarily reflect what they really believe. As far as he is concerned, a Republican is much more likely to be transparent than a Democrat.
Honestly, I didn’t know what to say to that. For starters, it’s entirely too diminutive. While it may seem useful to box up an entire cross-section based on one aspect, even in statistics, after a certain point, any scheme that does this loses its effectiveness because it is oversimplified and simplistic.
However, it is still an interesting theory to consider. Our point of view does not change as a result of the fact that we are taught to be politically correct. What changes is how we speak. As important as what is on the outside is, in fact, what is on the inside.
