Cancel culture is inconsistent with the ethos of free enterprise, innovation, and discovery on a number of levels.
Past famed ACLU attorneys are speaking out that the organization has caved to "cancel culture" and joined the censorious, authoritarian left.

Deeply illiberal mobs of so-called “progressive, anti-racists” have escaped our nation’s college and university campuses and threaten many other institutions, including museums, sports and entertainment, corporations like Coca-Cola, and even our elementary, middle, and high schools.
Who would have expected Mr. Bean to be the oracle of anti-cancel culture wisdom, but in a recent interview, British actor Rowan Atkinson brilliantly noted the absurd dangers of allowing a one-sided, biased algorithm created by liberal control freaks to decide who wins or loses within society.
