Mike…Have you been reading my recent thoughts?…

…This is a perfect segue into something I’ve been thinking on writing about, the last week…

A lot of people claim that cancel culture is a liberal or leftist thing…

…Which, as someone who grew up in the deep christian church, I can say is total, utter bullshit…

Being someone who well remembers “the moral majority”, and what social and political power the “religious right” had…I can tell you that the 80’s was dominated by religious zealots and their communities, who were outright gleeful at waging campaigns to shut down minorities fighting for their own legal rights, and initiatives they attacked on religious moral grounds.

There are reasons why Ellen Degeneres was so skiddish about revealing she was gay, on her own sitcom…and why the show took a nose dive shortly thereafter.

…It’s because religious communities [most notably christian] threw their social and political weight around, like nobodies business…waging campaigns to cancel all sorts of things…and making threats against those who did not comply…

Cancel culture was the original, rotten social playbook, of christian culture in the U.S.

It’s been around “forever”…

…and it’s not a “left” or “right” problem…It’s a social idiot problem…

…The incompetent idiots among the left didn’t learn a damn thing, from these shitty tactics being used against them and all the social destruction they caused…instead, choosing to import this disgusting behavior into the “left” arena.

No…we simply are cursed with idiots in our species, who lack the depth and creativity to think anywhere past crushing the other, and dominating everyone.

These halfwits are what is wrong with society…and are why it is so hard for the rest of us, who want to bring people together, to work through social conflict, to succeed in such endeavors…

These idiots drag everybody else down, and stand in the way of true social progress.
