Seen on a reader board: Will cancel culture cancel itself?
There are two answers to this:
- Once they finally got rid of everything they objected to, they would be forced to, in order to avoid being labeled hypocrites.
- They won’t because there will always be things they object to. They’ll redefine or expand what they’re targeting in order to keep going.
Members of the cancel culture have the same flaw as the Daleks and Cybermen: if they ever achieved their goal, there would be nothing left. The Borg are similar to Cybermen, except they’ll sometimes leave you alone if you’re not getting in their way.
