The Western intellectuals find themselves in a desperate situation. In order to justify their existence within the limits of the straitjacket of their own design (such as Political Correctness and Multiculturalism), they have to resort to insincerity, selective outrage, taking offence on the behalf of others, ignoring atrocities committed by privileged, oppressed people.Censorship
and intimidation is the wet dream
of the intellectuals. It is the only acceptable safety net when balancing on a tightrope in world of ever changing sensibilities and linguistic prohibitions, producing a spectacle of moral indignation in competition for the attention of a fickle audience.
Fear of ridicule is the constant companion of the Politically Correct
intellectual in his battle against facts and observations by the uneducated.
