Has political correctness gone too far?

From the US election campaign to our national debate over amending section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, there’s been a revolt against political correctness of late.

The ‘un-PC’ brigade have declared themselves saviours of free speech and are proclaiming to call things as they see it, PC be damned. But has political correctness gone too far or are we in danger of losing ground on equality?

The latest 1Q2 debate, presented by the Ethics Centre, will put the issue of political correctness front and centre by asking “Has Political Correctness Failed Itself?”. Join the discussion, or simply head along and get riled up as speakers, including News Corp’s Chris Kenny, debate the issue.
