Thai youth take to street in pro-democracy protest -snip- Ah, good for them! Anyways, is it actually possible to get rid of the lese majeste law entirely, though?

Cancel culture isn't exclusive to the so-called "progressive" Left in the West. Here's an example of right-wing nationalist cancel culture scalping someone from overseas at the behest of a foreign, tyrannical government, hence the reason I consider it to be a threat to democracy in the lon...

Overrepresented? Underrepresented? Who cares as long as race- and gender-based "affirmative action" quotas aren't enforced? White people are still the majority in the United States, and men are more naturally predisposed to seek out positions of power and influence. For women to achieve an...

I like when Hong Kong was actually, you know, relatively free, even though elections were rigged in favor of the CCP's preferred candidates and early attempts to erode our freedoms were relatively tame by comparison. I remember when one of my school teachers told us that if he were to discuss human ...

And resignations are basically firings in these context. It's just to give you an out and save a little face. "She didn't break up with me, I broke up with her". That sort of thing. Ehh I doubt it. This all reads to me more like an attempt to pivot upward and out of the NYT by capitalizin...

The guy is an unambiguously racist, misogynist bigot, and some of that bigotry and personal bias seeped into Carlson's scripts from time to time, directly undermining his well-meaning colleague in the process. He also soft-doxxed and harassed at least two women in his life and would've done likewise...

It's all about clicks, ads, and the bottom line. Cancel culture has been able to exploit this glaring weakness to devastating effect.

I take exception to being labeled "right-wing". I'm a liberal and a centrist at heart. Authoritarianism vs libertarianism exist on a separate y-axis, although authoritarianism tends to predominate on the far-left and far-right in practice. If liberalism/progressivism is the polar opposite ...
