I was asked to complete a survey by one of my favorite magazines: What is most damaging to our world right now? Would it be climate change, et al? No. None of the above. My write in answer: Cancel Culture. Cancel Culture is an extreme form of erasure. The rage is palpable. But what did you do? Did you really do what they said you did? It doesn't matter, because it is too late.
You might be totally innocent. You may not even know why you have been cancelled.
Even if you didn't do it, they can't go back and uncancel the cancel. You're deleted
