A Thought on Cancel Culture — There's a Lot We Don't See

Posted on Aug 28, 2020

I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot and don’t have clear ideas. I both think that there is good and bad within this movement (and that it’s both new and old). One recent idea I had is that we focus on those who have been cancelled. We don’t notice the times when people aren’t “cancelled” because there was no outcome. That’s why don’t mention however many events a controversial speaker went to, only the ones that were cancelleed. On the other side, we don’t know about all the terrible acts that people carry out and face no reprecussions for.
