Today’s college campuses are hotbeds of anti-intellectual insanity—a world of micro- aggressions, trigger warnings, safe spaces, speech codes, cultural appropriations and mandatory sensitivity training where the slightest impolite utterance, regardless of intent or heartfelt apologies can result in harsh punishment. Can this be reversed? The answer is “yes” but this will require a devious pathway that begins by seemingly encouraging the opposite—yet more PC to, eventually, kill the beast. Let me explain.

Analyzing the PC distemper invariably focuses on a reign of terror by snowflakes, cupcakes and social justice warriors seeking to punish anything (“hate”) that might possibly offend anybody but particularly members of certain privileged categories.

Not true though it is absolutely correct insofar as these misguided airheads are the ones doing the actual damage.

What really drives this insanity is the absence of clear-cut rules regarding the PC-cosmology. Anarchy, not malevolence is the core of the problem, since nobody in advance knows that is hateful, let alone its punishment. Today’s campus PC disaster is the classic illustration of life without the rule of law. How can a Goodthink professor escape the little Torquemadas if he has no idea of what they consider “offensive”? Life thus abounds with ever-changing wooly-headed rules, many invented on the spot with Kafkaesque variations. We obviously need a clear PC code that defines offensiveness and stipulates its punishment.

The solution requires each campus to create an assembly of students, administrators, professors and activists to formulate a “PC Code.” Now, unlike the American Constitutional Convention dominated by White Protestant Males (including 25 who owned enslaved persons), this Assembly of Social Justice Warriors (ASJW) will be a truly representative law-making body. The school will also pay students members generously and benefits will include free meals, trips and conferences. We cannot foresee its exact composition and final size (at least 500, hopefully), but it will certainly include representatives from multiple communities of color, the LGBTQIA community and practitioners of other erotic predilections such as S & M as well as those previously marginalized, stigmatized and voiceless, those associated with indigenous peoples (particularly if negatively impacted by climate change), and where feasible, delegates from the currently incarcerated community.

Then there are the Assembly’s procedural rules, for example, can a single delegate, thanks to intersectionality, represent more than one perspective. Might a disabled lesbian of color be counted as three votes? Voting rules are particularly important. Will each community vote en bloc or will members freely pick their unique identity per vote so our black disabled lesbian might align with fellow blacks on issue “A” but and with the disabled community on issue “B”?

Meanwhile, should a simple majority of all delegates suffice or, following John C. Calhoun’s design of concurrent majorities, might proposals require a two-thirds or more vote with each community counted as a single vote. Most perplexing, are all votes to be counted equally or, in the interest of making amends for past racism, sexism, misogyny, oppression, ableism and the like, are voices to be weighted to reflect degrees of suffering?

Nevertheless, these will be settled, so now on to formulating the PC Code, a deliberative process no different than a legislature inventing the white male patriarchy criminal code though, of course, these enactments will not aim to subjugate, marginalize and disempower. Consider, for example, micro-aggression, just one of many, many troubling campus behaviors to be remediated.

Micro-aggression will first have to be formally defined with sufficient precision so that even white heterosexual males in denial can understand the concept and, as with criminal codes more generally, this Code must calibrate seriousness (e.g., the misdemeanor/felony distinction). Conceivably, a white cis-gendered female who asks an Asian male for help with a calculus problem (this assumes that all Asians are good at math, a stereotype) is less guilty of a micro-aggression than, say, the same cis-gendered female who inquire about a black male’s SAT math score since this question falsely assumes that black male college students have lower SAT math scores. What about a white professor who unconsciously gives African American students higher grades than whites for identical work? Can this micro-aggression be subject to the mens rea principle: — actus reus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea, i.e. “the act is not culpable unless the mind is guilty.” Is the white Professor, all denials aside, guilty of unintentional condescending White Racism?

What about penalties for micro-aggressions? Might penalties draw distinctions over the perpetrator’s mental condition, for example, innocence due to the debilitating legacy of slavery and whether a “weapon” was involved , for example, posting a humiliating micro-aggression on Facebook?

Then there’s enforcement. How about paid student enforcers? The University of Arizona, for example, once advertised for students who would receive $10 per hour to spy on fellow students for exhibiting any bias toward fellow students. Why not a special “Chief Prosecutor for the Suppression of Heresies”? Can the PC Code include a “due process” element that would require a formal indictment, an opportunity for the accused to defend themselves (sic) in open court or, will the feelings of the victim automatically trump any defense?

Enacting a PC code, let alone just creating the initial Assembly is obviously a Herculean, attention-distracting, time-consuming, exhausting task. Months—maybe semesters– may pass while the battle over personal pronouns, let alone fuzzy definitions of “hate” or “bias” drone on. The happy upshot, however, will be that the pox will now be quarantined while all the snowflakes and social justice warriors antagonize each other over who is the most oppressed. With a little luck, the entire anti-“hate” impulse will vanish into a Tower of Babble.


Lastly, even if the PC Code could be formulated (unlikely given student turnover and the inventive of payments for pointless debating), the final product is likely to be so vague and cumbersome, that those accused a PC offense can readily escape punishment. For example, a white Sombrero wearer up on charges of Cultural Appropriation can demand that his accuser specific what PC “stature” was violated since the code itself fails to define “Sombrero” precisely and will call experts for his defense demonstrating that the Sombrero is not distinctly “Hispanic.” He might even claim a dollop of “Hispanic” ancestry since an unspecified ancestor was kicked out of Spain in 1492. The investigation, “trial” and all the appeals can drag on for years—long past graduation–and the very prospect of this farce will undoubtedly discourage future charges of “Cultural Appropriations.” Recall the brouhaha a t the University of Pennsylvania when a white Israeli called a black student a “water buffalo.” Even testimony from zoologists regarding water buffalo habitats and experts on the Hebrew language failed to resolve the issue, and the entire episode embarrassed the University

Recall Oscar Wilde’s insight about why socialism will fail—it takes too many evenings. Hopefully, the Pox will now vanish for the same reason—it will take too much time.

  1. This USA mess goes back to the seventies:
    Christopher Lasch, ‘The Culture of Narcissism, American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations’, 1979, 1980, London
    But it is a general western problem, many no longer understanding that science is about facts, politics about subjective preferences.

  2. Beckow says:

    Good idea, but in practise it would be defeated by a simple “we know it when we see it, so shut up” dynamic. If you offer more subsidies, seminars, trips – they will take it. If you try absurdity, they will normalize it. When all else fails, they will simply ignore it – after all their first step was to monopolize the media space.

    PC will not be cured by either confronting it or by ridiculing it. It might become our ever-present future. But more likely, the catastrophic economic consequences of its idiocy will doom it. SJWs simply cannot run a modern economy. The problem is that by the time that is obvious to all, too many people will have been socialized into prefering bad economy as long as their ‘identity’ is worshipped. It happened before.

    But that will take another 1-2 generations. In the meantime, if there is a seminar on how to ‘cis-gender’ (?) priviledge, sign me up. People love free buffets, and PC rulers offer lots of them. Their critics don’t.

  3. It would be less painful and less tedious to issue everyone a gun, declare campus to be a free-fire zone without legal consequence, and let the mass of students sort it out for themselves.

  4. All this PC-Pox eerily resembles China’s Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) which was a feeding frenzy of insanity carried out by same age zombies. I don’t think that there is any ( objective) historian in the world that defends that period as having had any beneficial results.

    The ideas in this article are good but as Beckow’s comment above points out basically insanity can’t be cured by mildly demonstrating that it is insanity. It will simply adjust to the new and generous inputs.

    My solution (equally impracticable) would be to physically force any SJW types to put their money where their mouths are. Black Lives Matter activist? Move in a group of Bruthas and their baby mammas into their own home or apartment. Tranny or Sausage Jockey supporter? Mandatory weekends spent at exclusively tranny or gay bars until said activist either cries “uncle” or forcefully becomes a convert at which point he/she may be declared a non-hypocrite.

    Facebook shrieking about some ‘monster’ caught killing a raccoon that had invaded their house? Introduction of a cute little raccoon family into their own attic and so on.

    Reality can be very persuasive. It is also decidedly non-PC.

    Consider the larger context: stable employment allowing for regional development in the central industrialized parts of the country has steadily disappeared since the 1970s. This had formed the material basis for maintaining stable families, especially in the fly-over states. Permanent poverty, downward mobility for the lower middle class, depopulation and lower life expectancy have been the result. This has turned a once stable population into marginalized helots. This occurred in parallel with the rise of ‘identity’ ideology, which ensures that the real victims of these mega-trends will never come together. Now, even the graduating identitarians find themselves with no prospects of a stable future. Who do they blame? They’ve been indoctrinated to blame the helots and view their present bleak reality as a result of long past historical injustices. Guess who are laughing all the way to the bank!

  8. PC or victim class supremacy on campus can be cured by the same methods used to cure PC in the federal government.

    I suggest some cures:

    1. Revoke the national level voting rights of the 2 largest federally recognized victim class groups, women and queers. If that is impossible to accomplish, then instead eliminate all federal entitlements that are designed to primarily benefit women and queers.

    2. Remove and punish all federal judges that promote PC ideology through judicial rulings.

    3. Create anti-sedition laws for PC similar to anti-communism laws.

    4. Revoke all tax breaks and credits and business licenses and accreditations for organizations that promote or tolerate PC ideology.

    5. Outlaw all government support for Zionism, and associated democracy and diversity nation- building.

    6. Change immigration laws so they favor non-victim class people.

    7. Revive federal respect for the reserved powers of the people and state governments.

    8. Break up or eliminate all federally sanctioned business monopolies.

    9. Eliminate the 17th amendment, the popular election of US senators.

    10. Outlaw FCC licensing for broadcast media that promote PC ideology.

    I like the essay. The modest proposal might even work.

    Offensive also works. While abroad, i had a good friemd, male homosexual, who enjoyed annoying neo-hippies by claimimg a fetish for inserting his member in the blowholes of dolphins (in more direct language).

    So, he must get at least triple points, male homosexual (and never an obnoxious one, which is unusual), inter-species desire, and an unusual target of affection (the dolphin blowhole).

    His claim ‘I f*** dolphins in the blowhole’ really annoyed the neo-hippies.

    Quite recently, with more reading, I found that a good portion of dolphin worship in the west is essentially bestiality, not that I don’t like dolphins, they are great, but I do dislike people engaging in bestiality and pretending not to.

    Just because it is in the water does not make fixation on its private parts *not* bestiality.

  11. Weissberg is being kind of naïve here. The PC-bots will never agree to establishing clear, logical rules for the simple reason that clear, logical rules would blunt much of PC’s effectiveness. If all those terrified adjuncts knew exactly where the lines were, they could rationally plan their behavior. But since they don’t know, they can do nothing other than practice self-censorship in order to protect themselves from the PC lynch-mob. In fact, many of them in time will discover that the best way to pre-empt any accusations of ‘racism,’ etc., is to out-antifa their own students and colleagues. Eventually, some of the more ruthless and ambitious ones will even begin to realize that, by jumping to front of the PC lynch-mob, they can direct it and use it to get rid of professional rivals so they can advance themselves within the system.

    These techniques have been used historically by several totalitarian societies: Russia in the 1930s, China in the 1960s, etc. The goal of such social systems is to keep people constantly paranoid, looking over their shoulders, suspicious of their neighbors–or even their own kids!–so as to make it impossible for any of them to organize a coherent plot against the TPTB. And history will show that these techniques have never once failed …

    factories and blog coverage that keeps ’em divided – it’s gonna be allright. They can do the carefully scripted civil rights blather while their opposition (also following a carefully assembled
    script) calls them snowflakes. Meanwhile the real swindles are hidden from view. The goal here is quite simple – to destroy education for the potential threat it is – a multi-decades project.

  13. KenH says:

    Weissberg is assuming that the howling dervishes of political correctness possess a modicum of rationality and are willing to make their ideological red lines understandable and digestible to the non PC kafirs. New strictures are always being added to its Hammurabi code while others change. The fake news media and comedian ideologues like (((Maher))), Colbert and (((John Stewart))) serve as its clergy issuing fatwas via their media platforms.

    The PC phenomenon is all about political expediency and whatever can further the ultra left wing and anti-racist (anti-white) cause at a particular moment.

    It’s not the students who lead these anti White heterosexual movements. It’s faculty and staff. This isn’t 1960. Every college in the country has a plethora of counselors and assistant assistant deans of student life constantly looking for micro aggressions and anything and everything to persecute Whites.

    UCBerkely was infamous for campus riots 55 years ago led by the likes of Bettina Apotheker communist daughter of a communist professor.

    But by 1990 UCB settled down due to the overwhelming number of non political Asian STEM students. The counselors and profs were all disappointed the students refused to go along with the radicalism of the college staff.

    Correct. 35 is now what used to be 18. But even then at 18 we didn’t think that we were super special snowflakes and the world owed us favours. A small side note, one of my nephews excelled in hockey at an early age and I went to watch one of his games. He and his team were trouncing the opposition and I looked up at the scoreboard to see what the actual result was and saw 0-0. I asked my brother in law if the board was on the fritz and he responded ” no, If a team is leading by more than 3 goals they don’t show the result so as not to traumatize the losing team” .

    This was over 15 years ago! I was a chess champion in my scholastic venue back in the day. If you ever played chess at an advanced level you might understand that it is one game that you really hate to lose at. What would they do today if a player found himself (yes male) in a losing position and started crying? Declare a draw? If so, what is the point of competing?

    While it used to be true that you spend the very first and the very last years in diapers, I suppose the new normal is to keep wearing them throughout the journey.

    I guess that would also explain why you see presidents, generals, athletes and any other former manly representatives do the mandatory ‘cry’ in front of the cameras. You know we’ve spun the dial when the Village People are probably now unpopular because the are too macho, parody notwithstanding.

    Now every “victim” group is copying the Jewish model. They’ve seen how effective it is and has been. Hillel is also a working model for them. What a mess. It’s only to take advantage of circumstances and doesn’t stand up to facts! It certainly is a rehash of Mao’s Cultural Revolution as well and just as caustic to decent society.

    and so, i note that this advice comes from a member of the tribe, who are all too adept at critiquing others’ cultures, and telling us what would be best for us………..but want to outlaw critique of their own culture and its aims, and have now moved from the confines of academia to legislating their agenda in 17US states, and through the UN to criminalize and outlaw any such critique.

    funny the benevolent author mentions paid trolls, as the tribe spends quite a bit on making sure their narrative is communicated across all channels.

    don’t piss on my head and tell me it’s raining. sod off.

    Isn’t there is a standard Democratic way to deal with this?

    Democracy is a channel for resolving grievances within society by evaluating and deciding on issues and accepting majority voting. If the state pays for education, then surely it comes under the same rules, so what happens in universities should be a matter for state electors to decide, not students or university administrators.

    And fortunately for these students, they live in a Democracy.

    Totalitarian regimes have a different way of resolving these issues:

    In 1921 the Kronstadt sailors presented a Resolution to the Bolsheviks demanding elections by secret ballot, freedom of speech, rights of assembly etc. with the result that Trotsky executed perhaps 1000 of them and sent about the same number sent to the Gulag.

    And Hitler worked along similar lines:

    “I contented myself with shooting one hundred and thirty of these self-styled Bible Students (Bibelforscher). Incidentally the execution of these one hundred and thirty cleared the air, just like a thunderstorm does. When news of the shootings was made public, many thousands of similarly minded people who proposed to avoid military service on the score of some religious scruple or other lost their courage and changed their minds.”

    It’s um jacking off the male dolphins.


    I remember reading David Brin’s “Startide Rising” (totally “Pulp SciFi” but sadly the best of Brin’s books I read), where sex with “uplifted” dolphin (genetically engineered intelligent dolphins actually integrated in the command hierarchy) was a risqué possibility eliciting frowns of fellow shipmates.

    So it’s a thing now. They being fellow mammals and all, I wonder what they think about sex with chimps?

    no cure. It will get worse. The long wave of Revolution, from 1789 thru 1917, and on to the 60s is still here. The counter-revolution has started, again, and civil war is in the wind. It is not going to burn itself out, like Yellowstone, the fuel is limitless for the Disappointed and

    Rainbow Delirium is the drug of choice for dashed expectations.

    The country has 40% of unassimilables, and legions of White Youth on a crusade, since their prospects are not good, and their evenings are hemmed in by living with Mom and Dad, and they are not smart enough to figure out a way out…meaning all those roughly average IQ folks who never should have gone to College in the first place…their first experience in Disappointment augmented by college debt, by an education delivered by 60s-70s grey-headed marxists. Even the smart ones have caught the virus of Revolution. It is Not Fair! say the highly principled white kids.

    Jane Goodall apparently found working with chimps very satisfying.

    Numerous women high school teachers also seem to find rhythmic fulfillment in their work lives.

    This country has gone batshi* crazy.

    Most lies are just lies and usually harmless. People tell lies all the time.

    But when Lies are sanctified with false morality, things turn cancerous.
    That formula gives life to more and more lies(of similar vein) because these lies are no longer restrained by shame but, if anything, encouraged with cult of righteousness, even holiness.

    This is why the homo agenda has been so damaging. By spreading the crazy notion that a homo man’s anus has equal sexual value as a woman’s vagina, it opened the pandora’s box of righteous lies and even holy lies.

    If a man is to be morally praised and even spiritually blessed because he takes penises into his anus, it means perversion is not only the New Normal but the New Purity. And then, every freak or pervert comes out of woodwork and demands respect too.

    When homos began to demand that homosexuality be recognized as something noble and holy, many ‘nice’ people decided to just go along with the hope that Homos would be satisfied with some recognition and go away. But that initial lie was a cancer because it didn’t just tolerate a lie but sanctified it.

    That is also why BLM turned out to be so cancerous. By sanctifying black thuggery into saintly black martyrdom, it fused lie with sanctity. When the Wrong is made to feel Righteous, it is social cancer.

  52. Demography is destiny. The invasion of higher education by hordes of women, through the pox of co-education, is a central force-multiplier of Progressive insanity.

    Women destroy every male institution to which they are admitted on grounds of “equality,” turning them into Stalinist/Maoist daycare centers.

    “Women destroy ….”
    Simple. The Wahhabist Saudi Arabia and her version of Islam offer stupendous consolation for those persons of male persuasion, who have problems with proving their worth in western society.
    Among the college presidents in the U.S. 74% are men. – Guess who makes the PC decisions on the campuses. Also, where are the courageous American men when the US Congress genuflects before the FedReserve and Israel? And this flexibility of spine is not a novel problem, not at all.

    Where is our Napoleon?

    A tough, mid level military officer from some tough place like Corsica who has the will to reign down Cannon fire on the mob?

    Someone like this is needed to burn the University of California at Berkeley – burn the place to the ground.

    British people used to have an official lord high executioner who wore a hood and wielded an axe and his job was to behead certain people (pushy queens).

    This needs to be done now, very soon. We can’t talk, talk, talk our way out of this.
