Campus Reform reports on a new ABA rule that bars the use of words they call “potentially discriminatory”, like “honey”, or “darling”.
This is cultural ignorance. There are regional differences and even personality differences in different cultures. When some people use these words, it’s just their way of talking. I’ve seen it more often with black folks among my friends than others, as a matter of fact, I would assume because that’s just a “Southern” thing.
For awhile I took a certain bus route every day and the driver was a black woman who called me “Boo-boo” all the time. After awhile I found out she called everybody that. I asked her why once, and she said that way she didn’t have to remember anybody’s name. So many different people take the bus!
This is straight out of the novel “1984” by George Orwell. The novel was his warming against socialism and the totalitarian society that would devolve into -he had been a socialist. Maybe he thought it was happen faster, whence the year in the title, or maybe it could have happened without it.
But we are living under regimes just like he described.
In the novel, there were cameras everywhere, watching every move you made. Now, we have cameras everywhere. They are thicker in Britain than in the States, but they are ubiquitous here too.
The technology is more advanced, so now they can capture a lot more of your communications and habits than before. They track your web surfing, your phone calls, your purchases, your travels, your jobs, and now with the abominable Obamacare, they are setting up visibility into your entire medical history.
But… God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.
