In “The fatal reluctance to recognize evil” (Nation, Nov. 10), Wesley Pruden addresses the topic of “political correctness.” In the article, he uses the incident at Fort Hood, Texas, as an example of our obsession with political correctness. No better example is the insistence by the president and other government officials not to draw any early conclusions about Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan for fear of offending Muslims. I strongly agree with Mr. Pruden’s opinion. Such an attitude by our leaders will continue to cause irreparable harm.

The article was a perfect segue to two questions for which I have been unable to find acceptable answers. What is the motivation and source of this uncontrollable drive to achieve diversity and why? Who or what is responsible?
