Cancel Culture: All that is wrong with Social Media and the Mob Rule

Illustration by Tim Bower for the Washington Examiner

The very notion of public cancellation is the idea that the mob is in charge. To hold someone accountable outside of a courtroom by judges that are your peers and associates is by itself a gross misappropriation of the constitutional rights and freedoms held by every American. It is my opinion that Cancel Culture is harmful at best and utterly damaging at worst. If we think we can judge a very complex person by one mistake, then we aren’t looking for understanding. We don’t care who that person or what their soul is like. All we are focused on is destroying someone because they may have done something wrong in the past. We’ve all done bad things. Casting stones at others is one of the easiest things we can, but just because something is easy doesn’t make it right.
