Description

"Cancel Culture"—the effort to ostracize someone for comments or actions deemed offensive—has grown more pervasive in recent years. With the rise of Twitter and other social media platforms, people can quickly publicize such comments or actions and urge others to shun, or "cancel," them. Canceling can have serious repercussions, resulting in the loss of cultural cache, political clout, and even a job or career. Critics of cancel culture argue that it empowers digital mobs to police people's speech, invade their rights, and even endanger their physical safety. Cancel culture, they charge, erodes public discourse, inhibits free expression, and promotes censorship of unpopular ideas. Defenders of cancel culture dismiss these concerns, arguing that holding people to account for offensive—and often racist or sexist—comments is thoroughly appropriate. Such accountability can bring attention to prejudice and bigotry, they charge, and help break down ingrained systems of injustice, particularly on behalf of populations that have historically been discriminated against and exploited. Is cancel culture beneficial or is it toxic?
