Those of you who know me personally probably know that there are three topics in life that I avoid talking about in everyday conversations. Politics, religion, and finances. I come from a big family and these three topics have started more than one heated debate. My siblings and I have gotten to the point where we recognize each other’s viewpoints. We don’t bring the topics up if we are hanging out, because there’s a good chance a remark about the death penalty, abortion laws, or church could start an argument. So, the topic of this week’s opinion piece may come as a shock to some. I want to talk about cancel culture. Or, rather, I want to talk about the dangers of cancel culture.
