Cancel culture does more good than harm
The goal of "cancel culture" is to hold people accountable so that they can learn from their mistakes and grow as a person. Granted, sometimes it has gone off the rails (ex death threats) but if no one ever pointed out something was wrong, nobody would ever learn. Also, it can be argued that celebrities and social media stars should be held to a higher standard in regards to their behavior because they have a fanbase that looks up to them and learns from them.
Holding people accountable for their actions is a good thing, but it should not be taken to the extreme that every little online post from decades ago should determine a person's professional future, especially if they have appropriately apologized where needed and have changed their opinions or actions
The censorship and mob behavior caused by 'wokeness' and canceling is comparable to the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Cancel culture is just taking 2 steps back without even taking 1 step forward.
We're better off engaging people politely and explaining where we disagree. Cancel culture doesn't allow for that. It is lynch mob mentality for political differences.
