I will also elaborate, Aurino.

PC is simple dogma which may have its basis
in a corrective line of thinking that management has been espousing in a recent decade, for example.
If we let it go as is, frequently the ones who devised the correction will be eaten up by dogmatists who just repeat the new party line while practicing the same low grade of social injustice. Political correctness can imply that
stifling free speech is NOW okay, because the goal of speech has been attained....which to some folks was not continued thinking, but the goal to them was only the establishment of a dogma, those folks seem to think, around which all distortions and innuendo may dance.
So PC can be the worst enemy of the human race when the process that made it was trying to be the best friend.

The thing about pre-owned cars...is called
a "euphemism" (hope I spelled that right) and since cars are not seeking social justice, such a term would rarely be politicized...just a nice way of saying "used."

Mike
