Verbal Morality Statute

In the 1993 science fiction film, “Demolition Man,” Sylvester Stalone’s character Sgt. John Spartan learns about the Morality Statute after he awakens from cryogenic sleep to learn that the nanny state, political correctness, thought crime, and the moral majority have been running on hyperdrive and are out of control.  Gatorade hydroponics are in full effect.

Lenina Huxley: Ah, smoking is not good for you, and it’s been deemed that anything not good for you is bad; hence, illegal. Alcohol, caffeine, contact sports, meat…

It’s that the ideology itself prioritizes class justice over individual rights and makes no allowance for legitimate disagreement.” NYMAG

People are called racists for acknowledging that illegal immigrants actually broke the law to enter the USA.

People who rob stores, punch policemen, try to steal their gun, and flee the scene are somehow innocent when the police shoot them.

A bar of soap in a crude shape of a gun is terrorism, but a box full of wires and batteries and timer parts is not when one’s skin color is not white.

A shirt with a Star Wars stormtrooper is so dangerous a kid is sent home.

College students demand  “safe spaces,” banning Freedom of Speech.

Yale’s list of offensive Halloween costumes.

Santa’s “Ho Ho Ho” is offensive to women. Feminists seem to have  an issue with the traditional holiday greeting. (Seriously, people need to read some books and expand their vocabulary beyond hip hop slang.)   Not only that, apparently he is a paedophile! What gives?

Some how the American Flag is offensive and its politically correct to carry the flag of Mexico and other nations.

That’s just the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceburg. The thought of it is so disenchanting that I don’t really want to write about any more.
