I happened to be watching a repeat of SNL last night and was struck again by a sketch about cancel culture. A preening pair, woman and man, were congratulating themselves on their activities in canceling young children. The kids were aged from 3 to 5 and the pair were relishing their destruction of the future lives of these miscreant infants for saying things deemed “problematic”. It really wasn’t funny except in the darkest way. It nailed the psychology of this recent exercise in violence perfectly.
