Political Correctness Run Amuck

If you don’t think political correctness has gotten out of control, consider this.  Throughout recorded history, when a nation/people/tribe went to war with another, the winner basically owned the loser.  The people of the losing team became subjects (maybe citizens) of the winning team.  The land, property, etc of the losing team belonged to the winning team.  But somewhere along the line, in fairly recent history, things changed.  Now, we go to war with a nation and defeat them, then spend billions of borrowed dollars rebuilding them, setting them back up, and handing everything over to the first cousins of the people we just killed.  All this, just so we don’t have to appear as “conquerors” or some other politically incorrect term.  And for the record, I’m not suggesting we start wars just to expand the nation.  I’m talking about these conflicts we are constantly pulled into by the actions of others.  Just for fun, start in recent history and work your way backwards.  Think of every military conflict the USA has engaged in and won, and consider the possibilities if we had made the defeated entity part of the USA.    We’ve been taught that “conquering” is bad, maybe even sinful.  I encourage you to read from the Old Testament and see if you can get an idea about what God thought about it, back before political correctness crippled his people.
