Political Correctness

Program #EHRB002. Recorded in Denver, CO on November 02, 1991.

Political correctness and Multiculturalism are volatile and controversial issues in the United States today. We would be led to believe by the likes of Allan Bloom and Dinesh D’Souza and by Newsweek and The New Republic that western civilization, as represented by the U.S., is under attack. Its basic institutions, the colleges and universities have been penetrated and subverted by tenured radicals who seek to undermine our values and traditions. The media in numerous articles and cover stories suggest that an alliance of feminists, Marxists, black, Latinos, Native Americans, gays and lesbians are fomenting anarchy and revolt. What’s going on here?
