Why I purposely disuse PC lingo

When a totalitarian society controls the language, controls the words that people use in speech, and punishes them for using any word or terminology other than the prescribed  ones,  eventually  the  whole  population  will  be  so  afraid  that they’ll  start  using  the politically correct terms in their very thoughts, to make sure they don’t blurt out some word that will make them lose their jobs or get them arrested for hatespeech. The state ends up controlling not just their behavior and their speech, but shaping and controlling their very thoughts. Any questioning of the politically correct orthodoxy becomes literally unthinkable, because we don’t know how. We don’t have the words for it anymore.
