Cancel culture is a new name for a very old set of abuse tactics.
You don’t need to be a part of cancel culture to spread rumors, slander a person’s reputation, manipulate people’s perception of others for your personal benefit, ice people out, judge and exclude people for holding different opinions, and generally treat people as disposable pawns in your personal agenda.
If you want to change cancel culture you need to look honestly at the reasons these tactics exist and why they work.
The answer has to do with something inherent in every one of us, and if we aren’t addressing that then we will continue repeating these dynamics under different masks.
