"Political Correctness" Déjà Vu

Do concerns about "wokeness" and "cancel culture" recycle a 1990s panic over "political correctness," or are we dealing with the same problem of far-left illiberalism?

One trope used to dismiss concerns about overzealous “wokeness,” “cancel culture,” etc. as made-up problems (and/or right-wing agitprop swallowed by gullible people left of center) is that this issue is just a recycled version of the 1990s battles over “political correctness.”
