Quote from: Brundle-Fly on August 24, 2021, 09:23:10 AMI think cancel culture might not always get people cancelled but it is an attitude that is having an effect today and is worth discussing. I'm in.
Quote from: Beagle 2 on August 24, 2021, 10:17:02 AMIt's not an unreasonable observation to say that "cancel culture" (for want of a better term) is having an effect on comedy, and if anybody is qualified to take a view on it it's an ex-Python, but when I've heard him talk about this stuff before he's just done a load of really terrible racist jokes to justify how "funny is funny". He's going into it with his mind already made up we know what conclusions will be reached, but there may be some interesting stuff in there I guess.

Quote"why a new 'woke' generation is trying to rewrite the rules on what can and can't be said". This is the mission statement that worries me about the John Cleese doc. I hope it starts with a scepticism of just how true the culture wars are.

Quote from: phantom_power on August 24, 2021, 11:33:31 AMIf they mention that cancel culture is a right wing invention to push back against progress and cause in-fighting between various levels of left wing people then it might be

Quote from: Bad Ambassador on August 24, 2021, 11:34:50 AMThis reminds me of advice Bonnie Langford gave Sophie Aldred on her first day on Doctor Who. The studio is full of microphones, and you never which of them are on or whether or not anyone's listening at the other end. So never say anything in the studio you wouldn't want discussed behind your back.

Quote from: Barry Admin on August 24, 2021, 02:10:16 PMThe issue though is how "cancel culture" is blamed squarely on "leftists" or "the woke" for most of the time.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on August 24, 2021, 02:16:53 PMI agree that this is clearly cultural marxism under a different name, but that's not the same as saying "cancelling" is a thing that never happens to anyone. If we define cancelling as someone losing work or social contacts over spurious accusations or character assassinations online, or character assassination of people that has ulterior political motives, that's clearly something that happens all the damn time.
