I don't see sins, I merely prefer "wrongs" as in: not appropriate to circumstance, on which there is never a final ruling. Stauffenberg tried to murder Hitler; had he succeeded, would that be an example of "wrong" or "heroism" or some mixed bag, yet again?
As a cowboy, I meet both liberal and conservative, and I almost don't care anymore. The liberals generally lack a sense of accounting/economic limits, or a precise program to re-frame these to minimize shocks to transition towards something better, without endangering the economic livelihoods of millions of people, and conservatives rarely exhibit compassion/empathy or a willingness to dream of something better. Any conception of political correctness is rooted in discrimination between outside, prohibited behavior, and inside, politically correct behavior. The kind of thinking that persuades itself that it can clearly distinguish between right and wrong, sins and good, in a total, universal sense, is either performing a guru or... So in a sense, Roger, your enlightened perspective here IS the kind of thinking that conjures up/creates the political correctness problem it attacks.
