The world has gotten so much smaller thanks to high speed internet and social media. Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, said “Nothing travels faster than the speed of light, with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own laws.” Social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Reddit have made it easier than ever to form communities, but they’ve also made it easier for society to collectively pass judgment and publicly shame someone for allegedly doing something wrong. And if the internet dictates it, that could mean the cancelling of someone’s image and even their career. And that is what we’ll be talking about today: cancel culture.
