Re: Saudi Arabia Implements Electronic Tracking System for Women

However in today's PC dominated world we're supposed to consider their culture just as good and valid as our ours. I don't and won't.

That's your knee-jerk reflex showing. I likely have the sort of viewpoint that you'd call "PC", and I can assure you that people who think my way tend not to shy from calling a repressive totalitarian theocratic monarchy by name.

Us liberals are the ones that tend to take The Handmaid's Tale as a serious warning, after all.

The US gummint won't. Neither will many others.

The whole point of Political Correctness (PC) is to limit speech. Can't have people calling things what they are. It's analogous to NewSpeak in Orwell's 1984 and has had the same result.

I think that the government not calling out the saudi regime on human rights violations is more to do with oil and diplomacy than with some imaginary "political correctness".
