"one of the most dangerous intellectual afflictions ever to attack mankind".  Some of us have been saying this for years but it continues to flourish.  

Paul Johnson is an interesting guy.  While associated with the left in his early career, he is now a conservative popular historian.  I am reminded of an old saying - 'If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart.  If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain.'

The article then talks about Trump as a force against PC.  Johnson suggests Trump is the antidote for the poison in spite of his side effects.
