John Cleese, in an interview on one of the Fawlty Towers DVDs, starts talking about political correctness and has an interesting psychological take on PC types:
If you're in a group of people and you find that one person is particularly touchy -- they have difficulty controlling their emotions; greater difficulty than the other people in the group -- then you can't have so much fun because they're touchy and they're likely to explode... Now if you find that society is being run by the touchiest members, then in a sense that's a bit sick -- because you're trying to take, as the general standard, the standard of the people who have the greatest problem controlling their emotions...
There really is something emotionally whack about political correctness, isn't there?
