The Origins of Political Correctness
The Frankfurt School, and its Marxist/Leninist philosophy, sought to infiltrate academia, in particular, (but including all facets of society), in their attempt to destroy the family, the Church, and Western culture. Political correctness was one of their tools.
Critical Theory is its core philosophy. “Max Horkheimer defined critical theory as social critique meant to effect sociologic change and realize intellectual emancipation, by way of enlightenment that is not dogmatic in its assumptions.”
They believe there is no such thing as truth, and that all things are relative. Relativism comes from the Frankfurt School of thinking.
From the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy:
Relativism, roughly put, is the view that truth and falsity, right and wrong, standards of reasoning, and procedures of justification are products of differing conventions and frameworks of assessment and that their authority is confined to the context giving rise to them.
