You have to remember that freedom of speech is the FIRST amendment, not the 13th or 14th. It’s the freedom that every other freedom depends on. We cannot allow cancel culture to undo our free speech in the name of the free market.
The biggest threat to our freedom of speech comes not from the Government passing a law against it, but from all the big businesses waging war on it in the private sector as a monopolized group.
Going against the cancel culture is like going against organized religion during the dark ages. That’s real balls, encouraging the bus to run over people is the act of a coward.
It doesn’t take balls to see a mob beating a person and cheer that mob on. It does take balls to take a baseball bat and stand up for that person. Sorry, cancel mobs are cowards, not people speaking truth to power.
The real reason america isn’t pushing ubi / universal health care and similar pro working class policies is because money and power are tied together and big business tyrants, wage slave holders, don’t want to give away their power.
The core of our problem, in America, is that un-elected people have too much power.
They can determine whether you’re panhandling on the street of living
in a mansion. They can determine whether you have decent health
insurance or maybe the bronze plan on obamacare paying 1/2 your income
for it. They can determine whether you have a real shot going for your
next job interview, or if you’re just going to be libeled for petty
reasons. They influence our foreign policy, they buy our politicians.
And it’s out of that system that we got our politicians, and it’s out
of that same system which Trump came as a political outsider but still
an economic insider.
This is the real problem, “Systemic racism” is at most a symptom of this.
(To provide context, “Karen” is a pejorative being used to shame entitled fragile white women who complain and expect to be pampered, usually but not always by police officers. But I’m writing this post from the viewpoint of someone is interested in how this harms Whites, because we already know it harms Blacks.)
We need to support this “Karen Shaming” because it’s shaming weakness and fragility in Whites. And we don’t want that, because it hurts us too. Next time you’re fired for someone else’s mistake, realize it’s because someone who thinks like Karen did it to you. A coward.
problem America has now is that it’s hardcore into this cultural fit
thing. Nobody really cares what you get done in the office anymore, but
just how you appear for quasi-political ends. And that’s why America
sunk. That’s why there’s no manufacturing. That’s why we’re now behind
You slapped the intelligent, hard working guy in the face who was the guy who was keeping the boat floating.
listened to some critiques of the baby boomers from older generations
and basically what they say is that the boomers saw life getting better
and better and better but they didn’t see that people were going to work
every day and working hard.
And so boomers sort of thought society would just get better with no effort. And they lost that cause and effect.
And so basically they’ve ridden what came before them but ruined it for the next generation.
There is so much finagling in business to make sure you don’t have a level playing field, to rig the game in favor of insiders, that it’s amazing that any person without inside connections ever even holds down a job given the deck stacked against them and the attempts to prevent them from succeeding.
Considering how much the game is rigged, I’ve actually done pretty well in that rigged game.
So much of what people try to explain by conspiracy can be explained by simple greed, arrogance and bureaucratic stupidity. However, powerful people can easily conspire because those in power know each other.
