Default Dystopias where Liberals Take Control

Definitely written tongue in cheek by io9:

What do you all think about the likely PC-dystopia? I say likely as PC-dominated culture was in style during the 90s

I think the PC label is the biggest "Big Lie" the right has perpetrated since the age of ol' Dutch Reagan. The truth about the people who are supposedly "PC" is that a: they really have been for the most part politically disadvantaged, b: all they usually want is to be called what they want to be called--which doesn't seem that outrageous to me, and c: they don't have any real political power to "impose" anything on anyone.

If you want to talk about what it really means to be "correct" politically, think about flag pins and flag burning and using the Ten Commandments as civil law. How about "values education" in public schools? PC is just another smoke screen spread by those who want us to feel sympathy for the burden imposed on those who have everything.
