How would you make God laugh? John Cleese on PC
The link below is a 2 ½ minute video commentary by comedian John Cleese on Political Correctness. A transcript is viewable as well for those that perfer it.
“…a renowned psychiatrist in London called Robin Skynner said something very interesting to me. He said, "If people can't control their own emotions, then they have to start trying to control other people's behavior."
“…political correctness has been taken from being a good idea, which is let's not be mean in particular to people who are not able to look after themselves very well — that's a good idea — to the point where any kind of criticism or any individual or group could be labeled cruel.”
So have at it… be as critical as you want on this thread, but not cruel
So have at it….be sure to duck as the pendulum swings from cruel to critical to PC
So have at it… apply critical thinking to discussing ideas without personal attacks
So have at it … say what you mean without being mean
So have at it… and when it gets heated display your… “grace under pressure.”
But how many fully understand what grace is?
And why am I ending this intro with a joke?
So how would you make God laugh?
Answer: tell him your plans
