Why did cancel culture and hate speech come up in the West? By Political Science Posted on 2022-02-01 Category : Other To cover the mouths of the objectionable?
Still, there is a big difference between cancel culture and hate speech. In the second case, we are talking about hate speech, which is not particularly welcome in our culture either. Yes, and examples of the culture of abolition can already be found in our country, only to a greater extent it is based on the protection of traditional values.
Can you relate to the influence of liberal ideas, including, for linguistic communication, but to start with is three assumptions:
– the speech act by the force of the impact can be physical, which confirms the survey of schoolchildren (especially if we are talking about aggression);
– does not exist statement without ideology: even if a person thinks that his words were neutral, he translates certain values (perhaps the majority, but certainly not the whole of society);
– humanism — is it a good value, which worth the fight.
Perhaps all this will lead to a new form of totalitarianism and endless censorship of words and actions. Perhaps this is a historic chance for all people to come to an agreement and make the world a comfortable place for everyone. But I don't think this process is started by anyone and for something. It's just that people are looking for a convenient communication distance (as in the porcupine dilemma Schopenhauer).
