A collection of Letters in Monday’s Wall Street Journal centered on the Kancel Kulture’s penchant for censorship.
A couple of points regarding that penchant. One letter writer asks,
Why do the canceling elite feel they must protect us from anything that might possibly be upsetting?
The answer is because they assume, since they are so terrified of anything remotely or just potentially a little bit upsetting, and they need desperately to be protected from such, that everyone else must be terrified and so need protection, also.
Another letter writer notes, with reference to censoring Seuss, that
To learn to read is to learn to expand one’s mind and enable critical thinking.
As part of that, those depictions of an earlier age also could be used to illustrate how far we’ve come as a nation. The elitists, the Progressive-Democrats, and the Left generally, however, can’t stand for us to see that progress. It would undermine their narrative.
