Compassion is the primary experience

Oscar Wilde.
Talk about so called `cancel culture´.

So called cancel culture once honourable attempt to reimagine our society in a more equitable way now embodies all the worst aspects that religion has to offer but none of the beauty. As far as I can see, cancel culture is mercy’s antithesis. Political correctness has grown to become the unhappiest religion in the world.

Cancel culture is mercy’s antithesis. Political correctness has grown to become the unhappiest religion in the world.

We are a culture in transition, and it may be that we are heading toward a more equal society — I don’t know — but what essential values will we forfeit in the process,

says Nick Cave in his site The Red Hand Files.

Mercy is a value that should be at the heart of any functioning and tolerant society. 

He adds, mercy ultimately acknowledges that we are all imperfect and in doing so allows us the oxygen to breathe — to feel protected within a society, through our mutual fallibility. Without mercy a society loses its soul, and devours itself.

According to Cave tolerance allows the spirit of enquiry the confidence to roam freely, to make mistakes, to self-correct, to be bold, to dare to doubt and in the process to chance upon new and more advanced ideas. Without mercy society grows inflexible, fearful, vindictive and humourless.

Mercy allows us the ability to engage openly in free-ranging conversation — an expansion of collective discovery toward a common good. If mercy is our guide we have a safety net of mutual consideration, and we can, to quote Oscar Wilde

play gracefully with ideas.

Cancel culture’s refusal to engage with uncomfortable ideas has an asphyxiating effect on the creative soul of a society. Compassion is the primary experience — the heart event — out of which emerges the genius and generosity of the imagination.

Many can think also that "creativity is an act of love that can knock up against our most foundational beliefs, and in doing so brings forth fresh ways of seeing the world. This is both the function and glory of art and ideas. "

A force that finds its meaning in the cancellation of these difficult ideas hampers the creative spirit of a society and strikes at the complex and diverse nature of its culture.

with love, Nick.

Cancel Culture works behind, when:

Comes out a desire to cancel out a person or community from social media platforms. Some kind of half-narcissists make up the majority of the people who engage in cancel culture, and others who do this would include immature individuals.

Cancel Culture is characterised by the response of an evil individual when they are shown to be wrong. 

They will call on their followers to report the social media accounts of the person or group that did the criticising rather than discussing the criticism or showing by evidence where the criticism is incorrect.

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Oscar Wilde, De Profundis
