"Political correctness has become quite literally, bad religion run amuck. Cancel culture’s refusal to engage with uncomfortable ideas has an asphyxiating effect on the creative soul of a society." #QotD

"Cancel culture’s refusal to engage with uncomfortable ideas has an asphyxiating effect on the creative soul of a society [It has become quite literally, bad religion run amuck]... 
    "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."
~ Nick Cave on today's 'Cancel Culture,' from his post answering the questions 'What is Mercy For You?/ What Do You Think of Cancel Culture?'
