Discrimination, Political Correctness, & Decline
A community declines when the majority of its citizens become selfish, and under this influence it slowly dismantles all the restraints upon self-indulgence established by manners, customs, beliefs, and law. In other words, the clearly established norms and traditions get lost into extinction. ( Please read here.)
Indeed no where is this more clearly pronounced than in the notion of “Multiculturalism” the notion of who We are, where We came from, and We’re going to do what We please; because in Your U.S. Constitution we are protected by those rights. (Please see here.)
And quite simply we don’t find all that much being more offensive than that of the hesitancy for those who immigrate to the United States and immediately despise any form of assimilation. Not long ago I read an article on how those immigrants who’ve come here demanding to wear their turbans, or their little knives or daggers, literally want time off to go pray – and this one I’ll never forget (below).
At the university where I went to graduate school there were these lovely and quite expensive baths of some sort located in the rest rooms. Openly I did not know what they were. In fact the closest thing I’d ever seen to this quality masonry was a pet fountain on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California.
Seriously, I didn’t know if these ‘baths’ were Turkish baths, something for the disabled, heck, I just didn’t know so I went and asked. You’ve probably already figured it out – these high quality, tile lined floors, each with a down spout for water, deluxe with a towel hanging right next to the water adjustment faucet, and an awesome redwood bench that surrounded the entire enclosure; these very fancy ‘baths’ were for those who observed the Muslim faith for foot washing.
Now I make no qualm about it – it offended me that the state and federal governments were so accommodating to our Middle Eastern students. Yet, back on point here, isn’t there a clear violation of my Constitutional rights under the first amendment? Please visit here.
At the community level the America society is declining to the point of decay. We’ve written on “hedonism” that pervades our nation; we’ve written about special interest groups who will see their agenda’s get special attention and special money; furthermore, we have a problem with our government at the local level, state level, and federal level for simply sitting back – doing absolutely nothing – regarding runaway illegal immigration, even considering same-sex marriages, and running up record deficits with spending, spending, and more spending.

Why are we selling out to the Chinese? Iran? And every other nation who pats us on the back with one hand yet plunges the dagger into the heart with the other. (Must reading here.)
Our theory here at The Contemplative Thinker is that there exists an unhealthy ‘proverbial’ link between discrimination, political correctness, with the use of special interest groups to finance the dismantling of America. (Great writing here.)
