Cancel culture creates a climate of fear
There is an inherent contradiction in a movement that claims to dismantle institutionalised oppression, yet thrives on fear mongering. Cancel culture threatens to destroy the lives and livelihoods of its victims for holding unpopular views. In this, it creates a social environment in which few have the courage to express themselves for fear of being attacked. Rather than create a more equal society, this practice fosters discord, fear and a social hierarchy built on conflict. Proponents include former Democrat Presidential hopeful Andrew Yang and free speech activist and broadcaster Giles Fraser.
