Who are you? I can't explain. In my generation we have many seekers of social justice.

Re: Boomers rule!

He speaks my mind. I dunno what's better - him dissing Hillary, MeToo = salacious crap or "It's almost like, now we should turn the whole thing off. Go back to newsprint, go back to word of mouth, and start to read books again.".

Wise man. Especially about the trendy communist BS. Lived it. It was toxic and cripling. Woke snowflakes wouldn't last a second. Glad to be here.

Thanks, Tom.

Nick Cave on the selfrighteous woke lacking humility.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.the...cancel-culture

Nick Cave: ‘cancel culture is bad religion run amuck’

“Political correctness has grown to become the unhappiest religion in the world,” he wrote. “Its once honourable attempt to reimagine our society in a more equitable way now embodies all the worst aspects that religion has to offer (and none of the beauty) – moral certainty and self-righteousness shorn even of the capacity for redemption.”

Re: Boomers rule!

What a pretentious old geezer. Since the previous generation has died out, he's now going for the younger generation. Well, guess what. His own generation wasn't all that great either.

Same whining, just another target group. Even though I was never a huge fan of the Who, I admit some of his lyrics were quite poignant and can be used for every generation.

Re: Boomers rule!

Ironic

Canceling culture is coming out of trying to change things people don't agree with. People trying to show that their idea of life is the right one, and others are wrong and should shut up. People banding together to win a contest of opinions.

If you are trying to cancel "canceling culture" you are becoming part of it.
This forum is part of canceling culture, at least most of threads on it are.

..and my reply too.

Re: Boomers rule!

I wonder about the consequences these prominent people faced, after signing the open letter published in Harper's in 2015.

Cancel culture could change the status quo, if its principles were to understand and change and not to silence and eradicate other opinions. It is puritan.

I think we’ve already established that I’m closer to your kids in age than you
