The problem is that 'society' is being led by people with the moral fibre, ethics, honesty and independance of dogshit - the press, reality TV, gossip magazines, the opinions of self-seeking maniacs on Twitter and Facebook etc. etc.
These people are casting their views out as-if they were unshakeable truth to promote their own twisted view of the world and it's far, far too easy for them to get away with it.
It has become utterly unacceptable to disagree with these people - even if you have evidence piled a mile-high to dismantle their argument, you're seen as 'bullying' for pointing out that people are wrong - you're seen a 'elitist' if you win with intelligence alone.
That it's so easy to threaten people with legal action and bar people for 'holding unpopular views' - it's like the entire world has become Stuart Lee and it's staring at us with that utter smugness of being so high on the PC chart there is nowhere left to climb...
Whilst we should be making progress against hunger and disease, we're only finding new ways of sueing each-other - it's almost surreal.
