How saying the 'wrong' thing can be often right
Political correctness had a good innings, but it can only be a good thing if it's now nearing the end of the road
The epitaph writers may have spoken too soon when they hailed 2016 as the year that political correctness finally died.
Following an announcement by publisher Simon & Schuster of a $250,000 book deal with Milo Yiannopoulos, controversial editor with conservative news platform Breitbart, fellow authors have rushed to denounce the decision. Apparently, those with the "right" views must be protected at all costs from those with the "wrong" ones, for fear of terrible consequences.
The Chicago Review Of Books has even declared that it will not review a single book published by the company during 2017 in protest.
