Microsoft wants to help people think in a “woke,” politically correct, feminized way, so the newest version of Microsoft Office 365 flags supposed improper terminology and offers a “correct” replacement (“MS Woke,” The Sun, Jan. 12, 2022). Marxists love this type of thing, but they don’t mess around with mere “suggestions.” They are into full-blown force. Consider some examples of Microsoft’s flags/replacements:
mankind – humankind or humanity
postman – mail carrier or postal worker
mailman – mail person
congressman – congress person
maid – house cleaner
headmaster – principal
gentlemen’s agreement – unspoken agreement
master – expert
manpower – workforce
heroine – hero
Mrs – Ms
housekeeper – house cleaner
showgirl – performer
This is propagandizing. Sure the goofy feature can be turned off, but most probably won’t go to the trouble or even see the need, especially children and young people, and they will be unwittingly influenced toward rigid, leftist, lockstep thinking. Microsoft Office has 250 million users.
“We should always look upon ourselves as God’s servants, placed in God’s world, to do his work; and accordingly labor faithfully for him; not with a design to grow rich and great, but to glorify God, and do all the good we possibly can” (David Brainerd, missionary to American Indians).
“If one evil thought, if one evil word, if one evil action deserves eternal damnation, how many hells, my friends, do every one of us deserve, whose whole lives have been one continued rebellion against God” (George Whitefield). “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law” (James 2:10-11).
