The Political Correctness movement has become an increasingly global phenomenon impacting on how we think, the language we use and how we interact with family, friends and work colleagues. Following the success of How Political Correctness is Destroying Australia Dr Kevin Donnelly compiles his latest articles in this follow up to explore how political correctness is still destroying Australia. History tells us that totalitarian regimes whether communist or fascist are able to gain and maintain power by denying free speech and freedom of thought. While Western societies like Australia have not yet reached the same level of indoctrination and control it’s obvious that political correctness represents a clear and present danger and that it must be opposed if the liberties and freedoms we take for granted are to prevail. This second volume explores the issues that are threatening Australia’s cultural heritage and way of life, from global warming to sex and gender identity, refugees and multiculturalism, and more.
