Another Coprolalia-Infused Transmission From FEMA Region #10
Political-correctness, thought-policing, and hypersensitivity? – It took me five long years of pondering and observation to finally reach my assumption as to 'how' and 'when' these types of brainwashing / social-engineering stratagems initially began to crescendo, and for what purpose or agenda they were devised to serve and fulfill. The subliminal blueprinting of a 'gradually-imposed detour in societal etiquette and norms' – an undercurrent which scrapes against the grain of all that is inherent in our 'human nature' and 'DNA' – these stratagems which enforce upon 'the individual' a figurative obstacle-course of fragile egg shells (a minefield of 'emotional word mutations' to be carefully considered whenever attempting to express one's self while in the midst of a predictably-scripted / groupthinking society).
It is a mystifying thing - the destruction of words...as to 'how' and 'why' two separate words (both found in the English language) can express the same exact meaning, yet one of them is socially-perceived as being broadly offensive, and the other one is deemed as being socially-acceptable and faultless – for example, the words "Sh*t" and "Excrement" are both related and synonymous, and so are the words "F_cking" and "Copulation", etc., etc... Ironically, the same scheme also applies to the mutation of phrases and word-connections – for example, terms utilizing the word 'man' as a prefix or suffix have been ruled as not being politically correct. 'Manhole' is now referred to as a 'utility' or 'maintenance' hole... A UK council has banned the term 'brainstorming' – and replaced it with 'thought showers', as local lawmakers thought the term may offend epileptics... A school in Seattle renamed its Easter eggs 'spring spheres' to avoid causing offence to people who did not celebrate Easter... And the paradoxical list of thought-policed words and phrases goes on and on, and is ever-increasing in today's thin-skinned / hypersensitivity-programmed society.
[Coda]: My hat goes off to the likes of Lenny Bruce, Redd Foxx, Don Rickles, Richard Pryor, Frank Zappa, and George Carlin – because before these steadily-increasing bullsh*t thought-policing stratagems began to wedge their way into our so-called modern-day zeitgeist, all six of these men were full-spectrum practitioners of the context conveyed within the First Amendment of The United States Constitution (i.e. an individual's inherent right for 'choice of words', 'phrases', 'innuendos', 'opinions', 'belief practices', and 'eclectic methods of artistic expression').
