This episode of Freedom One-On-One features an interview with Grammy Nominated singer and songwriter Michelle Shocked from the online event called Cancelled: Enough is Enough! Michelle’s story is fascinating, as she is someone who was cancelled, despite being someone supporting the principles of Democratic Socialism.
On the first night of her tour, she found the crowd turning on her for intentionally trying to get them to stretch their minds and consider an opposing view. As a Progressive Christian herself, she is not someone who would align with standard Conservative values. That had no bearing on the reaction she got that night, as the outrage mob took to Twitter and ultimately got the rest of her tour cancelled.
This conversation dove deep into the psyche of Cancel Culture and discussing what can be done to end this horrific practice. One of the big problems is Big Tech and Social Media companies, which design their algorithms to manipulate us into conflict. They know that we’ll be more engaged if there’s a debate going. Much of what we are seeing in the streets in 2020 is a direct result of Cancel Culture gone wrong!
