A few days ago a friend of mine posted a recipe for paella, emphasizing that extra virgin oil had to be used.
As I was kicked around for speaking my mind in a "politically incorrect" fashion a couple of posts ago, I want to play around with this concept through an interchange with two friends on my Facebook.
Alex-> Friend 1: "Extra virgin olive oil" is politically incorrect.... what do you have against regular olive oil that has not gone through intermediaries? ....
Friend 1: extra virgin olive oil tastes better.
Friend No. 2: It's more pure as it is extracted from pre-pressed olives.
Alex: I call this discrimination against the people's tastes --- you're all classists!
Of course, this was a big joke, but I think that when someone has to grab on to the rather new concept of political correctness the real issues are left out.
Extra virgin olive oil exists and it tastes better, as much as black is black, pretty is pretty and ugly is ugly...
I would suggest that we all act more in consecuence with our beliefs...
The anonymous commentator who attacked me with personal punches was totally politically incorrect, but he displayed his hatred towards me -- which I do not take personally -- and his homophobia. Strange enough, he doesn't miss reading a new post.
But, as my writings are about my ideas and for my own satisfaction, I'll follow Saramago's example and not accept further comments.
By the way, there is no such thing as an anonymous commentary in internet... everything can be traced!
