We have often pointed out the peculiar quality of the present day: praise of the modern ideals of humanist values, economical growth - sustainable or otherwise - human rights and scientific achievement are repeated ad nauseam, yet there's a strange atmosphere of vacuity about them that for the most people's sentiments was not as obvious in the final decades of 20th Century.
We posit that reason for this may just be that those ideals do not exist any more in any meaningful way.
It is more or less usual procedure to observe political correctness from the point of view of someone rejecting it - looking from the outside upon this peculiar edifice and attempting to describe and explain it. However this always seems to be not completely satisfactory. There's always a sense of some point being missed.
Well, here we'll attempt something different: show how PC acts upon us from the standpoint of one submitting to it and suffering its coercive power. From this angle, some quite worrisome insights become apparent, chief one of them being a potential of PC to act intimately - intrinsically - i.e. invisibly upon the will itself, changing not only actions and thoughts, but very faculties of man that act or think.
