Mozilla CEO resignation raises free-speech issues

Mozilla CEO resignation raises free-speech issues | Political Correctness is Ruining Our Society | Scoop.it
The resignation of Mozilla's CEO amid outrage that he supported an anti-gay marriage campaign is prompting concerns about how Silicon Valley's strongly liberal culture might quash the very openness that is at the region's foundation.
andy cuthbert's insight:

The resignation of the newly named CEO of Mozilla is the most recent (and widely debated) example of the negative effects of PC. The CEO was forced to resign after the discovery that he had donated $1000 to support the gay marriage ban in 2008 (2008!!). In 2008, even prominent Liberals (such as Hillary Clinton) still opposed gay marriage. The world seemed to forget this fact. Anyway, the forced resignation of the CEO is completely unfounded. His views have no effect on the job he had to perform. Had he not donated $1000 dollars, he would still be CEO and likely performing admirably. It just shows how certain pockets of society are forcing their views onto others and refuse to accept that, politically, people have different opinions on different topics of debate. This country has gone too far with PC and we are suffering because of it.

andy cuthbert's insight:

3:19-4:39 or 4:45-6:00

 

Dr. Ben Carson is a rising politician (of sorts) and is the former head of the neurosurgery department at Johns Hopkins. He grew up in inner city Detroit where he was raised by a single mother, and ended up going to Yale for undergraduate school. He associates with neither the Republican party nor the Democratic party and labels himself as a member of the "logic" party. During this speech, Dr. Carson points out that PC risks curbing debate that is key to our nation. He states that is puts a muzzle on people and prevents them from actually speaking their mind (which hurts society)

andy cuthbert's insight:

Carson states: "It is time in America for the people to open their eyes to what is happening all around them as our nation undergoes radical changes without so much as a conversation out of fear of being called a name, of facing economically adverse actions or of enduring government harassment..." Again, PC curbs debate and infringes upon the rights upon which this nation was founded. The founding fathers laid a foundation of freedom of expression and freedom of speech, something that PC is destroying.

andy cuthbert's insight:

The fact that the author is trying to justify PC is a bit over the top. At one point she says "I heard only yesterday how Salma an advertising executive was quizzed about how she would cope with a job and her five month baby. She suggested to the interviewer that the line of questioning was as appropriate as her asking him about his sex life." That is absurd. Having a child definitely affects the productivity of a working mom, as her attention would be focused elsewhere (understandably). Thus, the question is fully justifiable as the employer wants to ensure he will get a good level of productivity from his employee. It's terrible that an employer shouldn't be allowed to ask this sort of question, but this is the direction in which political correctness is pushing us.

andy cuthbert's insight:

This sketch over the top, but I think it proves the harmfulness of PC in a comical way. The teacher/art professor simply wants his class to learn to draw a new style (something that is a classical theme in art), but the class goes up in outrage, at one point calling the teacher a racist. It just shows how, if as a society we are politically correct, PC can disrupt education and lead to unnecessary outrage.
