Political Correctness IS Cultural Consciousness

... or at least a symptom of it. 

PC is good and is bad. 

The good part is that it represents a cultural consciousness.   We need that.

The bad part is that it works against individual dissent from that consciousness.

As with all things in our Tao.  There is a balance there to be found.

"The Mainstream (aka 'center') is the persona which most people watch.  It is the loudest drama that is going on.  And it is not just a drama ... it is the dominant habit of our existence ... it is that against which it is almost impossible not to measure the drama of our own lives. " -- Bozo Faust
...  We could substitute the term "Political Correctness" in that paragraph salva veritate.

Note that shared consequences exist ... they be ... they are being ... they are in our ontology ... like it or not.

Seth says
i just noticed a relatively object criteria for judging the utility of a tag.  If it does not connect to anything else that is pertinent  to the item or even the comments on the item, via the upper left panel, then it is to be judged as irrelevant and should be deleted. 

People who continually affix such irrelevant tags are abusing the facilities here at fastblogit. There will be no consequences imposed on those people by the host here, except that their taggings will be deleted.  But they should know that they abusing a consciousness here.  Perhaps those people could spend their egoo energy better by discovering actually pertinent tags ... then the consciousness here will increase, instead of sinking into decay.

It *is* so very strange how people let consciousness fall into decay  with such a passionate zest.

An EGUU that thinks it is the only judge is arrogant.  Even Bozo champions associations to words which have no direct relationship. Infinite loop of bullshit noted!


actually i am proposing a objective criteria.  one that does not depend on a subjective judgement.  strange you ignore that, and instead accuse me of doing the opposite.

There is only objectivity if words mean something. Evidence shows these days & in your posts that words are only suggestions & touch stones for more words.


Well tags mean the items that they connect up.  So, yep, they mean something. 

That words alone, disconnected from interpretation, can go in endless circles, is another good reason to make sure that they actually do point to places that others will interpret as being the same.  There is a synergy with other in speaking truly with integrity.   Obscuring that is working for decay. 

Me, i like the decay of my compost to make soil.  But the decay of our language ... the only profit there will accrue to demigod zombies who profit on our confusion.

Seth says
the prior guidance was that if a tag did not connect with any other items currently or anticipated for the future, then it was not a useful connection.   The new guidance opens that up to the rest of the web as defined by the upper left panel. 

The only reason to tag is to connect the item to another item or train of thought.  If no such connections are going to happen, then the tag is useless and is just junking up our database.   You may have noticed that tagging operations are getting slower and slower.   That is because of the size of our tagging database.   Abusing that hurts in many ways.  Your are being asked not to do it.   Rather to enhance our connections here by finding actually pertinent tags.

Yep, I know about the consequences of the consequences, they are being considered too.

I am not angry.  My goal is to eliminate as much of the scrambling and corruption of signs going on in this mental space as possible.
