Obama’s right – you don’t change minds by damning your opponents

 

 

It’s all too easy and gives you a high, but nothing is achieved by name calling

 

Cancel culture has been cancelled by Barack Obama. Rejoice! Now a long-established ritual of social media, to be “cancelled” or “called out” means to be subject to severe public contempt on account of some infraction against morality.

 

It can spill into lost jobs, broken friendships and public protests; ultimately, it amounts to an effort to declare the victim a non-person, someone intolerable to decent society. No appeals and no rehabilitation.
