Sorry to be unclear @sloanstar1000... I meant that rather than thinking about things as politically correct or incorrect, we should adopt a more child-like view of the world, where political correctness really doesn't exist. Of course, as adults, we are held to a higher moral standard than children. Therefore, what we say, even if it disregards the idea of political correctness, can still be outside of moral correctness. Calling a black man a "ni***r"(sorry if that offends anyone) is both politically and morally wrong.

In summary, we should try to see the world in a more child-like manner, difference being that as adults we have knowledge and sense to know what is morally right or wrong to say... another way to say it would be that we need to focus less on political correctness and more on moral correctness... hope that clears it up, I appreciate the criticism @sloanmaster :)

Lane... so we should strive to think like children, and just blurt out the first thing that comes to our mind as opposed to thinking about how stupid we sound?

I agree political correctness is a burden to society, but that's not a good argument against it.

It's true. That's why people treasure children so much. There's no such thing as "politically correct" with them haha I remember when I was really young and I asked my mother "why is that person brown?" a perfectly innocent question coming from a kid, not innocent coming from an adult or older child. Kind of proves to me that the idea of being politically correct only exists in our heads, due to our development in this society. In other words, it should not actually exist.
