Surely there’s a balance between the suffocation of extreme political correctness and being a crude, self-important jerk who lacks compassion.
 
Finding that balance requires a nimble nuance few seem willing to engage the issues with. It’s either all or nothing, whichever way you happen to swing.
 
And the sheer aggressive, pigheadedness of the majority of the opposing side (whichever it is), and the strong desire to throw a wrench in their mechanisms, all but forever guarantees a wide gulf between ideologies.
