Definitions: Political Correctness and Progressive Virtue

Traditional America used good and evil to measure virtue. Newthink replaces them with progressive virtue and progressive vice.

People need to feel virtuous. Therefore, all worldviews contain a system of measuring self-virtue. Traditional America used good and evil to measure virtue. Newthink replaces them with progressive virtue and progressive vice. The name of newthink’s morality, political correctness, provides a language clue to this: correctness implies keeping score. What is being scored is one’s level of progressive virtue.

Here are some definitions:

political correctness n : progressive morality

progressive virtue n : 1 : conformity to a standard of political correctness 2 : moral merit as measured under the newthink worldview

politically correct (PC) adj : adhering to progressive morality

progressively virtuous (PV) adj : having progressive virtue –(antonym: progressively unvirtuous (unPV))

Let’s review.  Political correctness = progressive morality.  Progressive virtue = moral merit under the progressive worldview.  Under newthink, the more one conforms to a standard of political correctness, the more progressive virtue one accrues.  Please understand these concepts.  There will be a test.
