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.

They are just people who happen to have a fanbase; you shouldn't believe that a celebrity is a "better person" just because they are famous.

It's not accountability culture that we're talking about, it's cancel culture -- meaning people's entire lives are ruined because of a tweet that they made decades ago or having a differing opinion on certain topics. None of that should be enough to cancel someone's entire life.

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.

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

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.

No, it is not. Cancel culture is harmful for free society. There is no 'right opinion' and people _could_ make some mistakes in life.
