One of my Favourite Dialogue is between Joe and Seligman in
Nymphomaniac: Volume II
Joe: Each time a word becomes prohibited, you remove a stone from the Democratic foundation. Society demonstrates its impotence in the face of a concrete problem by removing words from the language. The book burners have nothing on modern society.
Seligman: I think society would claim that political correctness is a very precise expression of democratic concern for minorities…..
Joe: And I say that society is as cowardly as the people in it. Who, in my opinion, are also too stupid for democracy.
Seligman: I understand your point, but I totally disagree. I have no doubt in the human qualities.
Joe: The human qualities can be expressed in one word: Hypocrisy. We elevate those who say right but mean wrong, and mock those who say wrong but mean right. Society is based on hate. It should be based on forgiveness. Hatred is rudimentary. One should be able to forgive one’s executioner.
