In our democratically aspiring countries we insist upon freedom of speech. However we are all constantly being swamped by the idea that some thoughts are not ‘correct’ and others are…and to the extent that it is common use now to refer to ‘PC’, thinking ‘everyone’ will know what we are talking about.

In our cultural codes we have  considered it rude to refer to subject or acronyms in speech and in the written word without introducing or affirming the full title or subject if we are not to embarrass others.  There are few in social gatherings who have a direct approach and would seek to ask ‘what does …….mean? ‘

It is difficult enough to fight against the forces that would deny us free speech and impossible to contend with the suggestion that our minds and expressions of thought must be judged by some unknown authority, as ‘correct’ or not.

Every ‘trendy’ popular thought or ideology should be appraised before adopting an attitude that succumbs to the fashion of the times.

To keep our minds clear we must be alert and reject popular pressures that are not in accord with our own ethics and thinking.
