In many of his writings, the German sociologist Max Weber condemned the rationality of modern bureaucratic government which, for him, restricted an individual’s freedom by compartmentalizing society. His view of the dangers of the modern state is perhaps best illustrated in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism where Weber notes that the “iron cage” of rationality extended to work as workers were forced, rather than compelled, to labor. Weber’s observation about the intersection between work and bureaucracy as the “iron cage of capitalism” has endured, in part, because of how thinkers, artists, and workers have continued to view the contemporary work-space.

With student protests on campuses, activism in communities, and a divisive presidential campaign filled with hateful rhetoric presented under the guise of “authenticity,” there seems to be a renewed focus on the role of political correctness in American culture and on the world stage.
