You are good, You are real, It’s OK to have an option
A friend submitted a piece to a newsletter, and he’s ashamed of it. In the piece he expressed his opinion. Those opinions are not the the groups opinions.
His opinions are not immoral or criminal. They’re his opinions. Why have the politically correct police made having an opinion a horrendous slight against humanity?
I find stories that are politically correct boring. If everything is perfect there is no conflict.
Look at the best sellers. They’re stories about serial killers brought to justice, even if the hero has to break the law to bring the murders to justice. They’re stories about magic. You can’t have magic because religions forbid it and you have to respect all religions. You can’t have romance stories because it’s shows improper actions to under aged children.
Are we doomed to have the history books rewritten to say that WWII was fought over slavery?
Are your stories going to be banned, outlawed, by a self appointed overseer, when you include a scene out of a real life incidence, when the scene does not meet the overseer’s idea of moral correctness?
Are we on the edge of becoming the Fahrenheit 451 world?
It’s not against the law to have a opinion. It’s not against the law to say something that someone can twist to mean you promote a horrible act.
Are we going to be slaves of the Politically Correct? Are we going to be slaves to the protestor that threaten you with revenge, if you talk to the police about a murder that happened in a police free zone? Are we going to be slaves to trolls that hound people till they commit suicide?
We are fiction writers. We are the last free people.
Stay strong, write on.
