LEGENDARY ENGLISH ACTOR DESTROYS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

John Cleese, the English actor, and comedian is known for the Monty Python films and the popular Fawlty Towers television series thinks political correctness is getting a little out of hand.
He’s hardly the first comedian to say so, of course. Funny men such as Mel Brooks and others have mocked or complained that political correctness is killing comedy. Cleese, says he no longer performs on America’s college campuses, where political correctness enforcement is particularly strident.
“This is, in theory still a free country, but our politically correct, censorious times are such that many of us tremble to give vent to perfectly acceptable views for fear of condemnation. Freedom of speech is thereby imperilled, big questions go undebated, and great lies become accepted, unequivocally as great truths.” – Simon Heffer, Mainstream Columnist, Daily Mail, June 7, 2000.
In a recent monologue with Big Think, Cleese said the effort to protect people from negative feelings is not just impractical, but suffocating to a free society. “The idea that you have to be protected from any kind of uncomfortable emotion is one I absolutely do not subscribe to,” Cleese says.
Cleese, who spoke to psychiatrist Robin Skynner about the phenomenon, posted an interesting theory on why many people feel compelled to control the language and behaviors of others.
“If people can’t control their own emotions, then they have to start trying to control other people’s behavior,” Cleese says. You can watch the entire monologue below. What do you make of Cleese’s theory? Is he right?
“Political correctness is just another way of filtering the truth.” – Sir Peter Hall, Theatre Director.
