Do We Want the Truth, Or Do We Want Political Correctness

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

In these days of political correctness, we often find it hard to discern what the truth is and what really happened at a certain event.

Often times, in order to not offend anyone, the facts are so distorted so that we an no longer decide with a rational mind what actually did happen. The truth gets hidden in the message because people get offended so easily and the press is often reluctant to disclose the details for fear of upsetting someone or facing the cold hard facts of reality. 

What is politically correct has suddenly taken precedence over what is correct and in the best interest of the individual. Being politically correct and worrying about someone’s feelings is more important than the truth or doing what is right. 

Once we become concerned about what is politically correct, we get a watered down version and never really know anything else about it. This leads to misconceptions and often places blame on people who had nothing to do with the event and somethings the heroes become victims. Many times a certain group of people get the blame and attention when in fact that is far from the truth.

There is much emphasis to do things for the common good of society while we slowly lost our rights as individuals, once that idea takes root, the time comes when we will no longer have any individual rights. 

Ayn Rand wrote the following…

“We must learn to reject as total evil the conception that the common good is served by the abolition of individual rights. General happiness cannot be created out of general suffering and self-immolation. The only happy society is one of happy individuals…The power of society must always be limited by the basic, inalienable rights of the individual.”

That is not what our country was founded on, our country was founded on individual rights, individual freedom.

We are being lead into socialism and loss of control of our individual rights. 

Once people stop believing in God, they begin believing in government. 

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures, and is available for book signings, and speaking engagements.

  1. In the words of Ben Shapiro, “the facts don’t care about your feelings.” I believe that this is the approach that we all should take, not just in politics, but in our lives. We must arm ourselves with education, facts, and irrefutable evidence to deal with some of the poorly misguided people that we share the Earth with.
