Political Correctness as Home-Grown Dhimmitude

The subtle slide from citizen to subject is an issue of concern for libertarians. It's occurred to me that the goal of our PC elites is to reduce the hated and feared unwashed masses to a state of abject subjugation, of dhimmitude- "that they may feel themselves subdued."

The similarities between dhimmitude and the contempt of the PC elites for the peons not only in flyover country here, but in the EU as well is a concept I'll be exploring here for a few days. The seed was planted by this article at Gates of Vienna, by Scandanavian blogger Fjordman. Start there, and discuss among yourselves.
