Patriotic Correctness is Just as Bad as Political Correctness

“Conservatives use ‘patriotic correctness’ to regulate speech, behavior and acceptable opinions.” This is from a wonderful article by Cato’s Alex Nowrasteh.

I would add two things to this article:

  • In addition to cops and border patrol agents, the patriotically correct deify military personnel and consider it treason to so much ask a question about the U.S. military.
  • The patriotically correct believe the War on Drugs is some sort of divine undertaking.

 

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
