Progress, in a world of cancel culture
Jan 10, 2021 Season 2 Episode 35

Cancel Culture is a neologism meaning it’s a newly coined term. It’s essentially the phenomenon of publicly shaming, rejecting, and ceasing to provide support to people, companies, or stores if they are deemed unacceptable. Celebrities are frequent targets but not exclusively. The shaming, for the most part, is done through social media. 

T.S. Eliot once wrote, “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

But how are we, as people, supposed to progress if accountability, and the inherent ability to “cancel” is left to the unaccountable?
