To Taboo Or Not To

Election denying is taboo,
holocaust denying too.

Antisemitism is taboo,
nazi sympathizing too.

Neo-fascism is taboo,
christian nationalism too.

White supremacy is taboo,
minority discrimination too.

Belonging to a cult is taboo,
supporting dark maga too.

Gangster rap is taboo,
gangster capitalism too.

Public intoxication is taboo,
illicit drug abuse too.

Public indecency is taboo,
dancing with the devil too.

There’s a reason why these are taboo,
it’s so that you don’t forget
what decent society expects from you.

And didn’t your mother teach you:
not to say or do
anything that could be misconstrued
as impropriety, too?

10 Taboo Questions in the USA: NEVER ask these questions

Commentary: The only people who are afraid of free speech are those who are living in denial, such as absolutists who claim that free speech should be free range rhetoric. There are only two ways to cancel free speech: Shut the spigot off, or open it full blast. If maga republicans can’t shut it down, via democratic means, they will use reverse psychology tricks to demand a no holds barred speech. Consequently, the public square will get out of control (anarchy), and then they will claim that the patriots can’t handle the truth, and cancel free speech and the rest of the first amendment all together, with the lie that they will soon legislate a better amendment to replace it (don’t hold your breath). Practicing politically correct speech has never been an option for the neo-fascists politicians, because their real agenda is to repeal the first amendment.

“Rejecting ideals is a fair first amendment right, but purposely using language that is seen as outdated and offensive towards already marginalized groups is socially not appropriate.
Professionalism is important and standards exist equally amongst all sides, and these standards exist for a reason. Political correctness, when referring to everyday language, is expected because it ties in, at its root, with maturity.
What makes it so difficult for people to refuse adhering to basic respect, which is now categorized as political correctness? If the majority of one’s environment is not using racial slurs, ableist language and generally offensive language, that speaks volumes about the extent of maturity one may obtain.”
Excerpt from Opinion: Don’t engage in anti-PC culture

“Obviously, if politicians believe that voters cannot be trusted with the truth, democracy is seriously at risk. For a democracy to function it is essential that a government respects the people and takes them seriously, not only those that have voted for that government, but all people. Furthermore, in order to exercise their democratic rights properly, people should be informed as fully as possible.
Democracy is a form of conflict management within states, just as diplomacy is a form of conflict management between states. Both therefore usually lead to a compromise between different views and different perceived interests. That is certainly the case when a decision requires both agreement between and within states.” Excerpt from Government of the people, by the people, for the people

The Golden Rule: “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Bible, Matthew 7:12

Taboo definition: A social custom prohibiting or forbidding discussion of a particular practice or forbidding association with a particular person, place, or thing. A taboo is an action that is frowned upon and considered inappropriate to practice or even talk about within a cultural group.

“Woke and cancel culture are both signs of a judgmental culture, not a mentally mature one. A world where you cannot even speak to another person without worrying about what they are going to think of you, has not advanced much from the days when the white people used to own slaves. Let me tell you this, if you are kind, if you are compassionate, if you hold no discrimination towards people whatsoever, then you have no reason to worry about whether you are woke enough.” By: Abhijit Naskar

Cancel Culture definition: A way of behaving in society or a group, especially on social media, in which it is common to completely reject and stop supporting someone because they have said or done something that offends you. Cancel culture has its place—it helps to call out and remove problematic people from mainstream culture.
Let’s call cancel culture what it really is: It is our way to exert some control over a world that is increasingly becoming more dangerous and less tolerant.
In cancel culture, we appoint ourselves the arbiters of truth or right and wrong and also the judge and jury, because thanks to social media, we get to dole out punishment.
The main argument against cancel culture is that it doesn’t enable people who have wronged society the opportunity to apologize and learn from their mistakes. There is zero tolerance for bullying, bigotry and racism.
