Re: Cancel Culture

This is the thing that bugs me, anyone now has the facility to publish anything they want, what people talk about when they say they are being cancelled is that they are not popular, but feel, none the less, that they should be force fed down the throats by firms that have built significant user bases.
It’s also fair to say that firms like twitter, fb, and others have profited off sensationalist rhetoric and are now desperate to not be appear to have been actively involved in terrible deeds that have actually cost lives. Cancel culture doesn’t exist, in any real political oppression of free speech, people who are against “cancel culture” are actually against the right of any private individual to moderate their own domains.
And sure, they will try to falsely equate it to other rights, but, given, say, a shop situation, everyone has the right to shop at a store, but everyone also has the right to eject anyone who willfully takes a dump on the shop floor
