capitalism plus consumers.
that was my original response to why I think cancel culture is not a thing.
you have companies making money.
you have people that are spending money.
let us burn Nike sneakers because we don’t like the new shaving ad from gillette on NFL is nothing new.
every one of these celebrities that were supposedly canceled by the supposed cancel culture simply laid low for a few months and came back unscathed.
many profited from this supposed stigma of Cancel and made millions of dollars more than they would have because now they have become the supposed rebel heralded by Joe Rogan and musk and center to right and the “anti sjw left” that doesn’t look like left to me (jimmy dore etc)
from Donald Trump Junior to I don’t know how many comedians have profited from this idea that they are the bulwark against cancel culture, this perennial victim of the left of the pink haired hoards etc.
and I suppose the center leaves me confused sometimes because i’m way off in the far left somewhere.
I see the games being played by the far right to influence the center and it’s so easy.
just pretend to be the average guy
