In response to Stella Morabito: Private conversations are loathed by the PC brigade. But they can spark revolutions, Bugle wrote:
This is very good, and nourishing. An element of private communication is humour, by which we can understate and soften serious or controversial points and also explore the trustworthiness of those we speak to before committing ourselves: many a true word is spoken in jest. Of course the PC brigade also hate humour, partly because they are humourless themselves, and partly because every utterance must be presumed to be serious so that it can be judged.
