Culture Wars/Current Controversies

Has Cancel Culture Gone TOO FAR? Open Letter Signed by Chomsky, JK Rowling Goes Viral

A quasi-SJW makes his case. The main problem that I have with his arguments is that he seems to imply that all non-leftist thought is by definition illegitimate and/or the equivalent of fascism. Although I agree with his point that right-wingers are often only in favor of free speech when out of power, kind of like leftists, ironically. The Left always becomes the Right once in power. It’s not a coincidence that the more powerful the Left has become, the less concerned the Left has been about free speech issues. This becomes obvious when you compare the US Left of today with that of the 1960s and 1970s.

  1. It seems that the Rogan podcast posted here with James Lindsey goes over this: within critical theory, by definition, anyone not explicitly “anti-fascist” is fascist. Likewise, according to this dude, anyone ‘conservative’ is by definition against free-speech and not open for debate. It’s so absurd it makes my head hurt, which may be exactly the intent.
