Synopsis

Zilbergeld calls attention to the dangers of the politically correct movement while providing specific counterarguments to the claims made by the politically correct across a range of social, educational, and political issues. Zilbergeld contends that political correctness poses the most important intellectual threat to America at the turn of the century. The issue of political correctness is important because it is a massive and a largely successful attempt to undermine the philosophical underpinnings of Western civilization. The book analyzes the issue of political correctness in five areas: education, science and the environment, affirmative action and group entitlement, the military, and the culture wars. It also explores the nature and concepts of political correctness, including its philosophical and historical antecedents. In each chapter, the specific issue is addressed with examples of political correct arguments and counterarguments so that the reader can evaluate the issue equitably.
