Adam Gurri looked at empirical evidence that might tell us how big a crisis academic cancellations really are, and he came away nonplussed. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, for example, documents 426 cases of scholars “targeted for sanction by ideological adversaries” since 2015, a relatively small number given the size of American higher education. “If any other problem in social life was occurring at this frequency and at this scale, we would consider it effectively solved,” writes Gurri.

academic cancellations

So bait n switch?

Pro-tip, arguing that things we've all seen within the zeitgeist doesn't exist, only make you look like a dishonest agenda driven hack.

Because you’re not allowed to present lies as truth. Nor should you be.

It exists. It always has existed. It has both a positive side and a negative. The positive side is people being held accountable for their actions. The negative is people refusing to hear/entertain opposing views. Its just the presentation/phrasing that has changed.

But go back to any point in time. Someone says something dumb and they become an outcast in school. Someone in the media says something dumb and they can no longer find gigs. Its not new. Its just people gave it a label and use social media to talk about it all the time.

If it wasn't a thing, Johnny Depp would still be in Fantastic Beasts.
