Default Is "civility" just another form of "political correctness"?

"Civility" is striving to understand an issue from another's point-of-view; even if you disagree with it. That is, "agree to disagree" is a viable option for improving the relationship between two entities. The problem often arises that the "civil person" can be taken advantage of by a less-than-civil person under this guise.

"PC" is the forced expectation that you approve of my view points, whether or not you agree with it.

I've seen people from both sides of any issue guilty of the latter. And I've seen people from both sides who properly exhibit the former.
I find your lack of faith disturbing

Why should I worry about dying? Itís not going to happen in my lifetime!
