Description

Jordan Peterson (reference below) describes how you play what he calls the “PC Game”:

“First, you identify a domain of human endeavor. It could be the wealth of people within a society. It could be the psychological well-being of individuals within a given organization. It could be the prowess of school children at a particular sport.

“Second, you note the inevitable continuum of success. Some people are richer or happier than others. Some children are better at playing volleyball.

“Third, you define those doing comparatively better as oppressors of those doing comparatively worse.

“Fourth, and finally, you declare solidarity with the latter, and enmity for the former (now all-too-convenient targets for your resentment and hatred).

“You have now established your moral superiority, cost-free, and can trumpet it at will.”
