Under what circumstances?
I mean, is it “totalitarian style censorship” if I am at a party and someone is telling a story about a “retard kike” or something and I say that’s offensive? What if I don’t say it’s offensive, I just wander off? Am I required to laugh at the joke, even if it’s not funny, to avoid creating “hostility and anger”?
Or do you mean in the workplace? Is it “totalitarian style censorship” if human resources asks a guy to quit calling the women “sweetcheeks” and “sugarbutt” or to take down the SI swimsuit pictures pinned to the wall? Does the cost of possibly creating “hostility and anger” worth more than the actual discomfort and annoyance he is calling?
My point is that you probably already agree that some “political correctness” is appropriate and that other things are ridiculous. 99% of the population agrees with that. Where we disagree is where exactly to draw the line.
