I have thought a little about this and decided to talk about the subject that concerns me most at the moment .... surprisingly its not the rise of Islam and increasing Dhimmitude of the UK, because if we are too stupid as a society to stop this happening, then maybe we deserve to let our western civilisation slip away. After all I am a man and will actually benefit in some regards, whereas women's groups appear to be supine about the fate that awaits them, when we all bow our necks to Sharia laws.
No, the subject that I fear most is Political Correctness, which disguised as "Social Liberalism", underpins not only the promotion of Islam that I object to, but also the rise of a new racism, and all manner of other social ills, that are similar to many aspects of the life described in the novel 1984 by George Orwell.
Firstly: A new official language and coded political expressions.
We now have 'Newspeak' as the BBC demonstrate in the name of "balance". This newspeak means that we have to convolute plain English in order to say anything that involves the mentally ill, the mentally or physically disabled, anyone of a non white colour and of course Islam.
This last has such a protected status in the world of the Politically Correct, that we have to bow to its sensitivities even when celebrating Christmas, which many councils dub as "Winterfest" so as not to offend the followers of Mohammad. Islamic festivals are of course 'celebrated' freely no matter what offence they cause to the majority of us.
The rise of a newspeak language, allows for the rise of the new actions and crimes.
Communism created and used its own language and these terms gave description to the actions they described. The term 'Proletariat' was for sure a term before Karl Marx used it, but it became a Soviet term describing the masses, and allowed people to discuss them as a lumpen group who were in conflict with their "Class Enemies" the 'Petite Bourgeoisie' (a term which became used as an insult from Left wingers in the West).
They, or rather their fellow travellers and sympathisers in the West, built a whole Lexicon of Soviet 'Newspeak' with which to vilify and control social groups.

As you can see from the selection above, there is a a sort of similarity with the New PC terminology - this may be because the same type of people who spouted the communist nonsense, now spout the PC rubbish with the same gusto.
Often the terms are the exact opposite of what they really mean so in Soviet speak "democracy" meant directorship, and rule by the party, and similarly "Multiculturalism" means letting ethnic groups disregard the native culture, and carry out questionable activities as 'cultural'.
Once you have a language for your ideology, then you can fulfil its actions i.e. You need a label and then you can carry out the actions it describes. For the communists the term Gulag was needed to allow the imprisonment of around a tenth of the population.
The Nazis used much the same methods and similar terms, but then they shared much in common. It’s often forgotten that both the fascists and communists considered themselves to be “Socialists” e.g. Until 1914, Benito Mussolini was the leader of the Socialist Party of Italy and Hitler said “There is more that binds us to Bolshevism than separates us from it”, he allowed converts from Communist parties to join the Nazi party because they could do so with little mental effort.
Now that we are openly censored in what we say, or how we say it, then it opens the path to the next stages.
For example an old persons home recently lost its local authority funding because people in the home didn't want to discuss their 'sexual orientation' as demanded by some officious clerk from the local council.
How sick is that .... presumably they were checking to see if the nursing home was taking a proper quota of 'homosexuals', or maybe it was because it was a Christian Missionary home? .... Certainly a Muslim orientated nursing home would not have faced these questions for fear of offending their religion.
This is simply PC driven discrimination by the local authority. What about the residents human rights, or the fact that they have paid taxes all their lives?
Secondly: Legalised discrimination in the name of 'equality'.
Once the language of PC orientated discrimination is enshrined, then open apartheid can be practised against social groups that the new ideology hates. The Bourgeoisie if you will of the new ideology.
For example Harriet Harman has introduced legislation that makes it legal to racially discriminate against white males in the UK (specifically English white males, as the others, Scottish Welsh etc, are all 'minorities' in their own right). Whilst this legislation is fairly weak, it nonetheless lays the foundation of legal discrimination on the grounds of both skin colour, and or sexual gender.
I will simply point out, that the fascists had similar ideas in the 1930's
The Nuremberg Laws suggested that racial types were different, with some superior and some inferior. Only they promoted the supposed 'superior' race, and the Harman laws promote the supposed disadvantaged (on grounds of colour) races.
Of course now you have the potentially tricky question of when someone is classified as 'White or Black', or discriminated for, or against, for the purposes of this legislation. If you have one white and one black parent are you white, black or something else (coloured?), and does that mean that a coloured person will get the job if faced with a white male, but lose it if competing against a black person?
Maybe we should bring in official colour charts and racial designations as per the old Apartheid South African government?
Apart from the obvious dangers that this could lead to serious infringements against rights held under existing human rights and discrimination legislation in the UK, this PC driven legislation could actually bring a form of apartheid eugenics to the UK courts, to our everlasting shame.
And that is why the malignancy of Political Correctness should be resisted by everyone, its used in just the same way as Newspeak, Soviet Agitprop, Nazi Propaganda, and Apartheid justifications were, and will end in similar results.
These are dangereous times for hard won freedoms, and New Labour risks causing great damage by its flirtation with Newspeak and the PC ideas that it represents.
A Prosperous and Happy New Year to everyone everywhere.
