The unspeakable

The object of political correctness, writes Dalrymple,

is to make the obvious unsayable, or at least sayable only under the threat of a torrent of criticism or abuse.

This does violence to the mind and spirit.

Those who refrain from objecting to the false pieties of political correctness (which are intoned within organisations as regularly as in public) come to despise themselves.
