That the modern “non-judgmental” and “tolerating” species of man spends much of his time in raging denunciation of views that might upset his own, should tell us enough about his character to leave us wondering which of his other avowed principles hide their opposites.

Reminiscent of T.S. Eliot's comment on Stephen Spender: "He is a liberal, and therefore tends to intolerance and judging others."

Plus, let's not forget the watchword of the terminally oxymoronic: "Don't be judgemental".

Thou shalt not judge, unless you are a liberal. Then you can judge all things and everyone.

Tell me about it.

My boss is an uber-politically-correct NGO Worker, complete with buzz words, empathy for the oppressed, workshops on 'Inclusion' as well as his huge tax free expat salary and 4x4 Landcruiser. (I am a volunteer worker)

He gave me an official 'documented verbal warning' for having the audacity to argue politics in public with a fellow employee - a 'radical femist of mixed ethnic background' as she discribes herself.

Because I challenged her political and social re-engineering ideas for Cambodia, I was the one automatically in the wrong. (she had been her 2 day, me 2 years at the time)
