The Purpose of PC

Theodore Dalrymple:

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to. — HT: Brett McS

Resources for Study of the U.S. Constitution

The National Center for Constitutional Studies will send you 100 pocket copies of the Constitution for $30.00, hard to beat.  They have a variety of other resources as well.

The proposed Constitution was presented to the people for debate prior to it’s ratification.  It was vigorously debated in a flurry of pamphlets, many of which have come down to us.  Some of these can be accessed online for free.

Another source for pamphlets about the Constitution can be found at the Online Forum for Liberty.  They have other useful resources as well.

David W. New has written a short work entitled “The Constitution for Beginners” which can be purchased at the Institute for the Constitution, which has plenty of other resources.

The Online Library of Liberty also provides a nice compendium of resources.

U.S. Constitution Online provides not only information about the Constitution but also resources to teach it, including to kids at various levels.

Constitution Facts . com offers not only the text of the Constitution and the Amendments, but the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Founding Fathers and more.  They also sell pocket editions of the Constitution, including a free copy for individuals, but you must pay shipping.
