Video: The History of Political Correctness

Here is an excellent video on Google, The History of Political Correctness. This 22-minute documentary would be more accurately entitled The Origins of Cultural Marxism, as it traces the history of Marxist thinking from the First World War onwards. It concentrates most of all on the influence of Herbert Marcuse, and tries to explain when and why Marxists shifted their attention away from economics and onto culture. It is well worth watching.
