In good Nazi bookburning fashion, the enforcers of political correctness attempt to suppress knowledge and debate. For example, they do their best to suppress mention of any proposition that offers explanations of why some groups are less fortunate and are likely to remain so regardless of any amount of well-intended intervention -- the claim (which surely should be at least discussable) that Negroes have an inherited lower average IQ than whites, for instance.

For a striking example of such a suppression effort, witness the pulping of Brand's perfectly scholarly book on IQ by his own publisher (Wiley of the US) when the political unpalatability of his inheritance data became obvious. There is obviously no way that the politically correct brigade believe in such "bourgeois" ideals as freedom of speech.
