    In my way of thinking, the reasons America has fallen into a state of despair, and political/social chaos can be traced back to the birth and implementation of:

    Political correctness....Tolerance...and, Diversity!

    These ideas and the implementation of these concepts upon society has brought everything and everybody from the office of president, to the supreme court, to Congress, to state and local government, to private and public employment, even some churches, to their knees: and it wasn't to pray [while it should, in fact, be to PRAY].

    Mankind no longer knows how to act, react, or interact with each other any longer without offending or breaking the basic principles of the "big three" so we are socially, economically, spiritually and personally paralysed by the mandates of these ideals! The very ideals that a good portion of us has been forced to sit under in classes presented by our employers, again, some churches, schools, and centers for higher academia have changed how we react and interact with one another, and not always in a good way. Thus, the majority of mankind no longer knows how to function in society or the workplace because of the "big three!"

    As far as I'm concerned, the Golden Rule was all that mankind really needed, and when we lived and worked by the Golden Rule, things were much simpler, and definitely less restraining emotionally, mentally, economically, spiritually and even physically; because the ideals and principles of Political correctness, tolerance and diversity are personally, if not socially, paralyzing regarding life's many issues! And they are for sure ruining this country and destroying the moral fabric of our society, because these three concepts do more harm than good, as they are like a deep, sticky pit of mud, catching us up and stalling and keeping us from moving forward or backwards. :type:

    Political correctness can be good or bad. Some things needed to go, some remarks should never be made.

    But since tolerance and diversity are hallmarks of the Baptist influence on our government and society, think we better keep them.

    After all, if we can force those pesky liberals to hush up, they can stifle us also!:tongue3:

    The key point would be how extreme has something gone to?

    For example, at a large local shopping center here is Syracuse, there is no smoking on Destiny property - and that include while in your vehicle!

    A lot of businesses have gone no smoking even in your car on their property. It might be political correctness, but where I live it is sheer survival and good business sense. Smokers weren't always practicing the golden rule themselves. Now the businesses don't have to clean up after they dump their ashtrays. And it seems to definitely cut down on the wildfires in this drought.

    Political correctness is always bad. Tolerance and Diversity can and is abused regularly to promote a socialist agenda.
