I would wager a guess that the demand for Politically Correct
commentary is decidedly post-period.
The denial of events or opinions that are counter to our own beliefs
merely due to their status as "other" can be a very dangerous
behavior. "I don't like it; therefore I don't want you to remind me
of it," is a very risky attitude to take, especially when one is
dealing with historical events. If we cannot acknowledge and accept
history (whether you choose to embrace those viewpoints expressed, or
not), then we are ever the more apt to repeat our species' past
mistakes. Remember, even Hitler was an important figure in history.
It is important that we be respectful of one another, here. But it is
equally important that we do not censor historical events as a way of
shielding ourselves from the reality of the path that brought us to
our present status as human beings.
