Cancel culture will cancel itself out
Question from the Internet:
“People favoring cancel culture do they recognize eventually their voice will be canceled? Solzhenitsyn pointed out that “To do an evil a human being must first believe what he’s doing is good” “Ideology is what gives evil-doing its justification.””
You are completely right. But we can’t see that in ourselves, we can see faults, evil only in others.
This is how we are all born. We all have an inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective, and “righteous” nature. This is why all through history we constantly trying to change others and the world around us — by that making everything worse.
The present politically correct dogma woke or cancel culture is the latest installment of the long chain of self-serving, self-justifying ideologies, philosophies that drove human history through its helplessly recurring vicious cycles.
Those who are loudly, coercively pushing their agenda now will self-consume very soon, it is inevitable.
The more important question is how much suffering, self-destruction do we have to go through before we finally understand that instead of canceling, erasing, forcefully changing others we need to change only one thing: ourselves.
