Interesting stuff I found on the web this week.
[Silverman] did have choice words for the emergence of cancel culture, calling it a “perversion”—one that is pushed primarily by the left and used by the right when convenient.
“It’s like, if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once, everyone is, like, throwing the first stone,” Silverman said. “It’s really, ‘Look how righteous I am and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.'”
And that righteousness, she says, leaves no room for growth. Instead of challenging people to be better, cancel culture boots people from polite society without the opportunity for explanation or redemption
I have an intense dislike of cancel culture. To quote a wise young man from am ancient book: He that is without sin among you let him first cast a stone at her.
