This rather new addition to the world stage where people are cancelled because of their ideas, the way they use language or things they said and did in the past seems to be gaining traction in the most (un)likely places.
Freshly retired from another forum after being banned on the last 4 of the 7 or so threads I tried to participate in I must admit my p.o.v is a tad biased.
That said I do wonder how we can turn the tides on this. I don't mind strong discussion. However these days it seems one has to weigh every word typed or spoken on-line or face group backlash because of words and intentions being misconstrued.
Back in the day(gosh I feel old now) you could sometimes get to the heart of the matter through discussion and a bit of strong words both ways.
These days as soon as you start to question ones intention sensitivity seems to take precedence over common sense.
Best not to say anything and keep the crowds happy. I am seriously contemplating dissolving critical thinking and going with whatever the powers that are are telling me to do.
Be a good and safe little slave until i'm sucked dry and given permission to die already.
