PROOF: Politically correct implies factually incorrect
By: Eric, on 05 Feb 2019

Politically correct assertions are not factually correct or we would simply describe them as "correct".  The whole point of the statement being considered "politically correct" is that by agreeing with it you join the coalition that is politically correct. This wouldn't signal your adherence to the authority of the group if it was simply correct because then everybody would do it. If it's blatantly and obviously factually false on the other hand and you say it is true in the plain contradiction of what can be seen, then your motive obviously is to signal that you are part of the group. Coalition building is much more important in the evolutionary psychology, as a force for passing on your genes, then simply being factually correct. https://www.edge.org/conversation/john_tooby-coalitional-instincts ;
