Good day

Hello all! I've been reading this site with a few buddies since high school and am now in my senior year of college and beginning to figure out myself as a man. I'm a political science major at the University of Tennessee, plan to attend law school next fall, and through my studies, I have grown exceedingly fed-up with the modern man. Specifically with regards to the general public's view of a Southern Christian. This site and many of you give me some semblance of faith in the future of…See More

The Cost Disease

Sir replied to David R.'s discussion "Iron sharpens iron" in the group The Great Debate
""Jewish person": one modern wordsmithing technique is to emphasize the person not the grouping. Jewish person, not Jew; person with Down syndrome, not Mongoloid; child with special needs, not cripple (ack). It's hard for me to see a…"

"Yeah I understand it, just wanted to point out that semantic shifts have happened with the Jewish race as well. Also, it's probably more justified than the other shifts for the reasons you mentioned, except for maybe the word negro."

"Censoring, in some cases, is a strong word. But it is a strong word when it applies to political correctness as well. At the least, those fixated on being PC will shut you out or label you for using the word that isn't "in," or…"
