    Political correctness

    Damn straight I object to mob rule! Democracy doesn't work when the majority of people have lost their ability to reason and fallen prey to the vice of double-standards and hypocrisy.

    Democracy is best, as long as everyone knows how to vote responsibly.

    People who actually speak the truth about what the vicious but victorious left has done are despized because the winners write the history.

    I love leftists, but leftist secular regimes did kill more than 15 times as many people as Jews killed in the Holocaust after world war 2, and none of that got coverage in my school.

    Someone needs to be a voice pointing out the double-standards that the herd follows, but the
    Shepherds pointing the finger have three pointing back at them.

    They will never tell you about it though. Not thoroughly like they do for offenses minor in comparison.

    Im speaking of the media , politicians, and the mentality most people are in.

    Point out the errors of the right. But if the left has a kill count or stack of trash more than twelve times higher, cover it with the same fervor and thoroughly as the media does with our president.

    Chinese money has Mao on it and in his great leap forward, he killed off roughly 60 million of his own people. That almost qualifies as the kill count of something like world war 3.

    Let's pretend China doesn't heavily influence this double standard that will destroy us.

          The left, generally speaking, ascribes to Postmodernism which suggests that there is no foundational reality: culturally, morally, spiritually, rationally, etc. that can be agreed upon or that speaks to absolute truth. In essence, on a personal level, I essentially agree with this viewpoint. However, I'm coming around to the idea that I've heard espoused by Jordan Peterson among others, that there are significant flaws with this philosophy, particularly when applied at a societal level. Opponents to postmodernism usually point to religion as being a foundational institution, necessary for a society to derive its values from, which in turn, mold societal institutions. Without it, there is a chasm left open which various, perhaps disparate, groups attempt to fill with superficial or tenuous ideologies. I was skeptical of this position when I heard it a few years ago, a natural inclination as an atheist, where I often point to many of the atrocities that religious societies have committed throughout history in rebuttal, justifying a lot of the secular atrocities of the east being a result of millennia(s) of living under fundamentally different principles, but this year has made me consider that I very well may be in the wrong.

          How this relates to the apparent double-standards in regards to political correctness that you mention in the op is that in a postmodern framework, there are no double-standards. There are not the structures in place to where one can point to one morally abominable action on the right and cross-compare it to a similarly morally abominable action on the left. All moral judgements are relative and therefore, at all times, an apples to oranges comparison.

          This is why in the cancel culture phenomenon, you often have people who were once deemed morally just by the mob, that are then turned on and cast out a year later. Without foundational structure, morality is inherently volatile and institutions are necessarily unstable.
