US govt has hardly been “canceling” shit, they can’t seem to cancel the lies that our most recent election was somehow different than any other we have had.
They haven’t removed the politicians that are openly opposing the democracy that they were supposedly elected to protect and administrate.
The two monopolies on “political thought” continues to exist, making governing at the federal level into a Harlem Globetrotters production, making us a juvenile bipolar country where the loud party glories in “winning” and “owning their enemy”.
The only canceling I’ve seen the gov not stop is removing statues of literal traitor enemies, which I guess the right embraces as that’s what they have become. DJT was pushing “patriotic” curriculum in school, basically cancelling teaching kids about anything wrong the GREAT USA, cancel slavery and genocide...that was the only gov “canceling” that was concerning to me. They sure ain’t canceling corporate profits or pipelines or ability to destroy whatever in endless consumption orgy that is that great anti-socialist view where people are demonized for wanting the government to HELP people, rather than just make money and jobs.
I see very little new “canceling” coming from govt entities. The people whining about it most are neoliberal capitalists, decrying that their pet shitty idea is dropped by a corporation. It’s so fucking dumb. This country is so twisted in double speak and cognitive dissonance, there’s no chance for debate. Most Americans these days just twist reality into what they feel it should be. Bitching about cancel culture is the manifestation of when these children get one of their toys taken away. They wouldn’t whine about the corp’s rights to stop making something, but god forbid they choose to drop something because it is in their financial interest not to piss off a certain demographic
