Which "philosophies of political correctness"? It is not a philosophical
tradition - its a political category created by right-wingers who want a
return to the good old days when women and minorities knew their places.
And so far as critiquing it because it is "ego"-based - well, so is
virtually all of modern politics, economics, art, literature, a lot of
science, etc., etc. shall we do away with all of that as well? The groups
that complain most about "political correctness" - conservative
republicans and christian fundamentalists - they are *not* "ego-based"?
Really? And so far as being "untheosophical" - I might point out that HPB,
a woman who travelled the world and insisted that some Asian religions
were far superior to western Christianity - would be considered by todays
fundamentalists as the very height of "politically correct".
