I personally prefer someone that offends me sincerely than someone that's falsely polite.

Open rebuke is better than hidden love.
Correct someone and afterwards they will appreciate it more than flattery.

Once politicians climb PC mountain they try to manipulate reality to get whatever they want. They have these nanny gangs that ruin real debate so they can steer clear of actual issues. If only someone was just honest enough not to havea divide and conquer mindset they could actually bring people together and conquer in unity. I'm tired of the capital of the free world dictate the human experience to just playing the acting roles and do what your told. That sets evolution and communication up for failure.

Very good point he is making...that has been a problem for a while everywhere here, whether it is in politics, at work or family gatherings, and it is watering down, and even impeding, open and honest discussions, and it stifles authenticity...not a good too #1..don't sugar coat it for me please...#2flattery is okay, in my opinion, only if it comes deep from the heart, but not if it tries to manipulate...and I also agree with #3...good discussion we got here.. :)

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link,I agree with every comment thus far,although I do find it a bit puzzling that this video has had 1629 views at this point,and only 5 on this small spec of dust in this vast Universe,have taken the time too respond to such a great topic.

I think what Mr Cleese is trying to say, is that the World has a proportion of Arseholes in it, and we should take absolutely no notice of these self opinionated barstards. In fact preferably, as they are the minority, we should send them to an island and let them moan to each other. :D

This is just a small fragment from the interview. John Cleese gives a proper example where its okay to say jokes and make fun about english, irish, scotish or about the white people in general but it becomes suddenly offensive if he tries to make a joke about mexicans, demonstrating a double standard elevated to the rank of dominion by the politically correct people. I see it nowadays more than any time and, as someone who lived in a dictatorship, its scares the living shit out of me.
