RE: 'Cancel Culture' And The Parameters Of Free Speech on LeoFinance - Is Something Amiss Or Am I Missing Something?

in LeoFinance5 months ago

As a German I should maybe give my 2 cents.

First a point for the downvoters. The optics of the first meme are very reminiscent of NS Propaganda

I cant really find it but I think there is one that is even much more similar.

Now a point for the Rothschild Conspiracy, I was introduced to that by left wingers as an anticapitalist, antioligarchie thing, not a world wide jewish conspiracy.

Reading your post you seem to be a little naive when it comes to anti-semitism. It mainly focuses on there being too much influence by the jewish community and forcefully wanting to put an end to it. It is not really about racial discrimination.

With all that said I was actually believing the Jews control the world for a long time, which I am not allowed to say out loud in Germany. I would like for people to be still able to do that on hive and Leo.

Personally Ben Shapiro changed my mind. I love that guy and while I disagree on many things, I surely do understand and respect the Jewish mind set much more thanks to him.

My post is about the phenomenon of 'Cancel Culture' as manifested in the example provided and linked to. The provided example illustrates the misapplication (wilful, knee-jerk or otherwise, I don't know) of a heavily loaded term of accusation. Discussion is silenced and unjustified repercussions are triggered. Such patterns of interaction set dangerous precedents, especially if they go by unnoticed and move closer to acquiring group/community acceptability.

I'm generally all for free speech and I maybe did not emphasize that I think it is pretty crazy to jump from that meme to you are an anti-semite. But I thought I made that clear by saying that I was confronted with that conspiracy in a left-wing context.

I also did not point out that I think a creator should have the freedom to downvote whatever the fuck he wants in his comment section. To me this is not a case of suppressed discussion, but of I don't want to deal with this bullshit.

Ok, cool, np. TBH, I didn't quite get what you were saying/what point you were making in your first comment. I therefore responded to the bit where you spoke directly to me/my post.
