The Truth About Cancel-Culture

Question from the Internet:

Why would anyone oppose cancel culture when it exposes the negative members of society?

Because it is false, it suggests that there are “negative” and “positive” members in society, when in truth we are all driven by the same, inherently self-serving, self-justifying, subjective ane exploitative nature.

Most people are fully unaware of this and they honestly believe that they are capable of good, positive things towards others, but at the end of the day, knowingly, unknowingly we are all only capable of egocentric, subjective calculations, looking only at our own benefit — most of the time at the expense of others.

The people pushing “cancel culture” will soon become like the snake eating its own tail, as they will gradually turn on each other, as even among the “positive members” of society they will find “rotten apples” who do not follow the ideology which soon will become a restrictive, discriminative dogma.

Nothing good will come out of anything we are doing until we recognize what desires, intentions, forces drive us all the time. Then we will understand that the only person we need to change, cancel is ourselves, each person consciously, methodically changing, upgrading one’s own nature — without any coercion, or misleading ideology, propaganda.
