Hasn't York Suffered Enough..?

Renowned broadcaster and writer Trevor Phillips OBE, a one time head of Britain's Equality and Human Rights Commission and outspoken critic of multiculturalism, will be at a York Union event in February, for a debate organised by the student-run society.
The public event will see him go head to head with commentator David Goodhart, director of the think tank Demos; Bristol-based academic Prof Tariq Modood and Guardian columnist Zoe Williams; on whether multiculturalism has "failed" Britain.
Blimey, the locals must be hoping the floodwater never recedes...
York Union's spring term programme in now "shaping up nicely", organisers added, with the multiculturalism event on Thursday, February 11 and Oxford University social geographer Danny Dorling due to speak on 1 percent" on Monday, January 11.
The group is also working on a debate on campus free speech - which they say promises to be a controversial topic in the light of strong No Platform policies at many student unions.
Worth getting your canoe out for...

Having just read today's Mises Daily blog I have been enlightened to what PC is all about and what you are writing about here I would suggest is just PC in action. I already knew PC was very wrong but not exactly why. For those of you who do not know who Mises was he was an economist of the Austrian school of economic thinking so anyone with a left leaning disposition I suggest you do not read any further as you might find it disturbing.

PC Mises Daily says that PC is all about control and is a form of propaganda (and as we know propaganda is based upon a lie ore lies). The progressives have brought about PC to enforce their agenda upon us knowing full well that PC is a totally immoral way to control our behaviour and our freedom of speech and expression. Things that we are totally able to control ourselves. Society has already set up a structure for this called manners and parents which works towards us being more tolerant and less rude to each other. It is by no means flawless but it works albeit slowly. Historical evidence is there that tells us that each generation is an improvement on the one preceding it in this area. We have to stop these petty tyrants and let society get on doing what's best for itself.

"PC Mises Daily says that PC is all about control..."

And the Left are nothing without control, be in overt, or subtle...

"I didn't recognise half of those names."

That's how they like to work...
