  • This event has passed.

Have you ever been quick to deem someone ‘problematic’? Or had a rumor spread about you, with little to no support for a genuine conversation to clear things up?

As writer Anne Applebaum points out, the costs of ‘cancel culture’ are not limited to those who are canceled.
(https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2021/10/new-puritans-mob-justice-canceled/619818/).

For them, the combination of “isolation plus public shaming plus loss of income” certainly results in long-term personal, financial, and psychological repercussions. This can happen with or without good cause — and generally ruins any opportunity for the canceled person’s rehabilitation in society.

Beyond the individual canceled, this growing knee-jerk reaction of deeming others guilty-at-a-glance creates a culture where few are brave enough to contribute their unique ideas to the collective conversation — or to come forward about committing past harm, wanting to learn how not to recreate it. Instead people are exiled, rather than invited into deeper learning and allyship.
