Talk about political correctness and political incorrectness
Talk about political correctness and political incorrectness
In a certain sense, U.S. President Trump relies on his criticism of political correctness, although the criticism of political correctness is not the initiator. In recent years, in the world, especially in the United States, it seems that criticizing political correctness has become a fashion and trend, and it is a weapon for many in the Republican Party to criticize the Democratic Party. Whoever criticizes political correctness seems to be a winner. Standing on the commanding heights of morality. In the current world, almost "political correctness" has become a synonym for incorrectness, and it is also a derogatory term, and is in a position of being scorned. On the contrary, "political incorrectness" which is anti-"political correctness" has become a commendatory term and has the honor of victory. sense. In my opinion, such confusion in semantics and concepts and the reversal of right and wrong are not only not the progress of social politics, but on the contrary it is the regression of social politics. It is very necessary to make some clarifications to set things right anyway.
Political correctness is correctness
Regarding Political Correctness (PC), human beings have different definitions at different historical stages and in different backgrounds. In a centralized and authoritarian country, political correctness means who has the power, whoever has the right to speak, and whoever is politically correct. It emphasizes the law of the jungle, the weak and the strong, and the victory of the five. In China, the thinking of the ruling class is political correctness. Marxism, Communist Party leadership, socialism, public ownership, etc. are politically correct. If they don't approve it, they are politically incorrect. The No. 1 figure is the incarnation of political correctness, and the whole country must revolve around him, with him as the core and showing loyalty to him is political correctness. Otherwise, it is politically incorrect. The political correctness of an autocratic country without freedom of speech cannot be discussed, doubted, or denied. Whoever has doubts will face various dangers and even sacrifice their lives. Therefore, it is almost meaningless to talk about political correctness under autocratic conditions.
Talking about political correctness is a product of a democratic society. Only under democratic conditions can people openly discuss and debate whether politics is correct or not. This is an important premise. So, is a democratic society politically correct? What is political correctness? Is political correctness correct or incorrect? Whether there is political correctness in a democratic society, of course there is. Democracy itself is political correctness, as well as freedom, equality, and the rule of law. What is political correctness? Specifically, it includes political subjects, the rights of political subjects, and the relationship between political subjects. Who is the political subject of a democratic country? It is the people whose sovereignty rests with the people, and no one is outside the people, including the owner of the country, who lives in the country's standard; what are the rights of the political subject? It is the rights of the people. The basic rights are the right to life, freedom, and property. Derivative rights include the right to know, the right to express, the right to vote, the right to supervise, etc.; what is the relationship between political subjects? Equal relationship, cooperative relationship, competitive relationship, benefit-sharing relationship, etc. In fact, in God's "Bible", there are regulations on the relationship between people, which is reflected in believers. Everyone is brothers and sisters and loves each other. The above is the basic content of political correctness in a democratic society. To leave and deviate from these contents is politically incorrect. Relating to the reality of the United States today, blacks and whites have equal rights and have equal rights. Racial discrimination reflects the relationship of racial inequality, while racism promotes or acquiesces to and allows racial discrimination and racial inequality and should be opposed. Of the list. At the same time, there is one and an important point. It is political correctness to recognize racial equality and oppose racial discrimination. Recognizing racial differences is also political correctness and important political correctness. It cannot be considered that as long as there are racial differences and recognize the differences in certain capabilities between races, it is defined as racial inequality and racial discrimination. This is anti-political correct. For example, in the NBA in the United States, black players have a certain advantage over white players, reflecting the difference in ability between white players and black players, and the gap in their annual salary is also reflected. Everyone agrees with this. No one justifies racial discrimination and racial inequality because of this racial difference. Of course, in other areas, such as science, technology, education and industry, whites may have certain advantages over blacks. This is also an objective difference and a basic fact. Therefore, racial discrimination and racial inequality cannot be considered. Therefore, political correctness is the correct expression of political relations and concepts. On this issue, there must be no ambiguity or vague definition.
Recently, large-scale demonstrations and even violent robberies caused by white policeman Xiao Wen's brutal and brutal enforcement of black Freud's death to death have attracted worldwide attention. For this reason, some people once again criticized political correctness, believing that the Democratic Party used political correctness to oppose Trump. How do you treat it? The brutal and brutal enforcement of the white police is a fact and should be investigated in accordance with the law. As for racial discrimination and racism? Do all or most white police officers have the problem of brutal law enforcement against blacks? Need more investigation and evidence collection. Therefore, the large-scale demonstrations and gatherings that have been triggered should be possible to express their demands in a peaceful and rational situation if they meet the formalities. This is also the attitude of the society, and of course the insecurity of the epidemic must be taken into account. As for the "black life is expensive", if it is an appeal for equality with white people, there should be no problem. In addition, the occurrence of violent robbery has exceeded the scope of normal expression of opinions and is an illegal crime and should be severely punished. But can the violent robbery also be blamed on the Democratic Party? There must be factual basis. However, it is necessary to recognize the racial differences between blacks and whites in some respects. This is also a basic fact, and racial discrimination and racism cannot be raised because of racial differences. For example, in black crime, the crime rate is higher than that of white people. Here is an icon:
The illustration shows that there are certain racial differences and there is a problem of how to reduce black crimes, but this cannot be treated as racial discrimination and racism, so they went to the streets to make trouble. Politically incorrect is incorrect
Acknowledging that political correctness is correct is so logical that politically incorrect is incorrect.
Politically incorrect can be understood as facts and opinions that are diametrically opposed to political correctness, and can also be understood as facts and opinions that deviate from political correctness. For example, anti-humanity, anti-human rights, anti-humanity, anti-humanity behaviors and viewpoints, propagating against human nature and self-interest, not self-interested, dedicated to benefiting others, private ownership is the root of all evil, advocating public ownership, communism, planned economy, Communist Party, etc. Also, human beings cannot be equal. Freedom and democracy are false and hypocritical slogans, which directly oppose freedom, equality, democracy and the legal system. As for political inaccuracy that deviates from political correctness, there are excuses for opposing racial discrimination and racism against racial differences, or even abolishing racial differences; those who have the excuses for equality between the rich and the poor and excessive demands to narrow the gap between the rich and the poor; those who have the excuses to increase social welfare Unrealistic requirements for the rich to pay higher taxes; or, conversely, drastically cut taxes on the pretext of maintaining the vitality and ability of capital competition; there are excuses for equality to give homosexuals who are not in the scope of marriage the right to marriage; there are excuses for opposition High welfare and drastically reduce normal welfare expenditure... etc.
What people need to do is to figure out what political correctness is, how to maintain political correctness, and oppose political incorrectness, instead of treating political incorrectness as political correctness and then criticizing political correctness. If you don’t understand political correctness, you cannot criticize political correctness, use your own political incorrectness to criticize political correctness, or criticize obvious political incorrectness as political correctness. It is nothing more than a secret exchange of concepts, slander political correctness, and your own political incorrectness. Think about the right things to promote, and you can't say that they are not sinister.
The U.S. Republican Party's Criticism of the Democratic Party's Political Correctness
In the United States, it seems that in the contradiction between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party, the Republican Party criticizes the Democratic Party a lot. It is often because the Democratic Party is "political correct", so it is extremely sarcasm and ridicule the Democratic Party. Some people say that "political correctness" is used by the Republican Party to talk to the Democratic Party. A discourse strategy for controversy, which is most fully manifested in Trump. Trump used to slander Sanders as a "socialist," but now he attacks Biden and approaches the socialist. In the past, it was not clear how Trump treated the Democratic Party. In recent years, Trump has basically expressed anger and insults directly to the Democratic Party. He has labelled the Democratic Party as communism and socialism to provoke the American people's dissatisfaction with the Democratic Party.
Regarding the United States, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are two major political parties that have been in power in rotation for a long time in American history. In the original sense, the Democratic Party is at the left end of U.S. policy, and the Republican Party is at the right end of U.S. policy. For example, the Democratic Party advocates increasing government expenditures, expanding social welfare, and raising income tax rates. Generally speaking, the Democratic Party favors the relatively disadvantaged working class. Corresponding to the Democratic Party, the Republican Party advocates "small government", cuts government expenditures, lowers income tax rates, and reduces social welfare. It is more inclined to represent the wealthy class of capital (since Trump came out, everything seems to have changed and weird. Judging from the current US presidential election, it seems that Trump, introduced by the Republican Party, represents the wage earners at the bottom of society, while the Democratic Party represents capital and social elites). Who is right and who is wrong, who is better and who is inferior? It's not easy to make a conclusion. From my point of view, capital and labor are two indispensable elements in a market economy. The key is to balance the rights and interests of the two parties, maintaining the vitality of capital investment and protecting the rights and interests of labor. Compared with capital, labor is relatively in The disadvantaged position requires more attention to the interests of labor. Who will balance the interest relationship between capital and labor? Except for the contract between capital and labor, labor dispute arbitration institutions, and labor unions (Federation of Labor, Federation of Industry), it is mainly the national government based on popular elections. The value of the government's existence lies in representing political correctness, that is, the interests of the general public, and handling the country's many-sided interest relationships. When the state handles various interests, there will be left or right sides, which may be related to whether the ruling party is a Democratic or a Republican. Deviation to the left may be the correction of the deviation to the right, while the deviation to the right is the correction of the deviation to the left. For example, if the tax rate is low, the tax will be increased, and if the tax rate is high, the tax will be reduced; if the welfare is high, it will affect the enthusiasm of the laborers for employment, and the phenomenon of laziness will increase. If the welfare level is too low, the welfare needs to be increased; if government expenditure is too small, it will affect the fairness and efficiency of the government, and government expenditure must be increased, including increasing government employees. Too much government expenditure will affect the total economic output and income If it exceeds the people’s capacity, the government must be made smaller, and so on. In a certain sense, the two parties in the United States contain each other and balance the country's stable development. On these issues, there is no definition of who is politically correct or who is politically incorrect. It cannot be said that tax increases are politically correct and tax cuts are politically incorrect, and vice versa. It should also be pointed out that the left and right of the United States acted as a national balancer. The left and right in the United States are fundamentally different from those in China. China's left is Marxism and feudal autocracy, and the right is free democracy and equal legal systems, which are completely opposed. From a development perspective, communist dictatorship is of course politically incorrect, while freedom and equality and democratic legal systems are politically correct.
However, since Trump took office, the contradictions between the Republican Party and the Democrats in the United States have intensified and intensified. They seem to be tit-for-tat. Anything the Democratic Party supports, the Republican Party opposes and rises to a hostile situation. For example, when the Democratic Party proposes to control guns, the Republicans own guns. Trump particularly supports gun ownership and rises to the right to freedom; the Democratic Party proposes to increase taxes and increase benefits, and Trump attacks this to move toward socialism... etc. . In fact, the difference in policy propositions between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is not the opposition between socialism and capitalism, nor the opposition between freedom and autocracy. The Democratic Party’s proposals for tax increases and welfare increases cannot shake the foundations of capitalist private ownership and market economy. Similarly, the Republican Party’s policies on tax cuts and government expenditures cannot lead to a laissez-faire market economy and anarchism. Just like at both ends of the balance, you can tilt it to the left or to the right, not too far from the center point. The Democratic Party cannot move towards socialism, and the Republican Party cannot move towards anarchism. Otherwise, it will betray the national constitution and national interests. Trump's attack on the Democratic Party may not only not harm and reduce the Democratic Party’s social influence, but on the contrary may help the Democratic Party from the negative side, and it may hurt the Republican Party even more, including the national interests of the United States. He criticized political correctness with political incorrectness, so that more people re-understand what is true political correctness and what is true political incorrectness.
In short, political correctness and political incorrectness are firstly a clear conceptual definition, and then basic facts. Defining political correctness with a wrong concept and then criticizing political correctness will not only cause conceptual confusion, but also easily confuse black and white, reverse right and wrong, and cause chaos in the country and the world. It is time to clarify this big right and wrong question.(The English translation must contain errors and may not be reprinted)
