here as usual is the beginning of pcr's thinking with the rest at the link below. he makes a clear case that americans, at least, are going insane in their thoughts and actions, with lots of evidence making that clear, should you wish to know;

Is the Western World Too Insane to Be Worth Saving?
Paul Craig Roberts
According to news reports NBC has cancelled Megyn Kelly’s program for making “insensitive comments” while participating in a panel discussion on the appropriateness of blackface in Halloween costumes. Here is what she said: “Truly, you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person who put on whiteface for Halloween. When I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character.” She added, “I don’t know how that got racist on Halloween.” https://www.rt.com/usa/442267-megyn-kelly-nbc-blackface-fired/
It is beyond understanding what is offensive about what she said. She stated that it had become a no-no for the black and white races to impersonate one another even in fun and she didn’t know why. I don’t either. Do you? It makes no sense.
We seem to have reached a point where any statement can be claimed by a member of a “victim group” to be offensive. Saying anything has become risky.
It doesn’t just happen to celebrities with multi-million dollar incomes like Megyn Kelly. It happens to everyone. For example, Joshua Sutcliffe, a young math teacher in Oxfordshire, England, accidently included a “transgender student,” who apparently is female but identifies as a male, when he congratulated his class with the words “well done girls.” The female who identifies as a male but doesn’t look like one, unbeknownst to the teacher regarded herself as a male and complained about his “female-gendered words.” The school suspended him for “misgendering” a student. https://www.rt.com/uk/409760-teacher-trans-girls-christian/
