I do not think cancel culture limits free speech. People manage to get their point across some way or the other...look at libel lawsuits for example. I think a bigger question is, have we lost our sense of right and wrong- of decency? Let’s look at the confederate statues for example...by moving them or even taking them down and not placing them elsewhere won’t change the fact that the person took part in dividing the country over ownership of humans beings, and committed treason. Why would it be okay to revere these people with a statue? Why would we encourage their existence? What is righteous about allowing such statues to remain? I agree defaming someone because you don’t agree with their opinion is another thing all together. Part of the problem is on social platforms one is not face to face with the person they’re criticizing and that makes it easy to embellish and insult. Again I say where is our sense of right and wrong, of decency and respect for a contrary opinion. And, it certainly doesn’t help that the man in the White House is a master at criticizing and making up falsehoods about those he doesn’t like and condoning crimes of those he does like. And he has the biggest social platform of all. Let’s just think about the example of right and wrong, of decency that he reflects onto the world each and every day...
