Political Correctness vs Politeness

I’ve become a huge fan of the ‘School of Life’ youtube channel.  They make a ton of 5-12 minute videos outlining lessons from philosophers, artists, political scientists, as well as tackling general topics such as ‘The purpose of friendship’ and ‘How to be warm’.

They also have a website called the Book of Life.  I’m on their mailing list, and occasionally, they send me an article that interests me.  The reason I’m such a fan of this is that I find they do a great job of verbalizing how I feel when I can’t find the words myself.

The latest article I read was one entitled Political Correctness vs. Politeness.  It explores the problems some people have with political correctness and offers the idea of politeness as an alternative.

Give it a read.
