A sociologist explains the truth about cancel culture

The topic of “cancel culture” has been discussed ad nauseam in the national media. As far as I see it, it goes something like this.
Conservatives believe that progressives are far too sensitive and censorious. According to conservatives, progressive thought police, armed with a notion that “words are violence,” patrol social media and bludgeon anyone who says something they deem out of bounds. They may cite attempts to cancel Harry Potter author JK Rowling for making comments that ran afoul of trans rights groups.

How decades of stopping forest fires made them worse

1910’s Big Blow Up remains one of the most disastrous wildfires in US history. Hurricane-force winds fanned and threw embers for miles. Full, flaming trees became dangerous projectiles as they were reportedly torn from the ground. After two days, 3 million acres throughout Idaho and Montana had burned. The devastation had a lasting effect on the United States and shaped US forestry policy for the next century. But it also created a deep misunderstanding of what fire means to a forest.
A century of fire suppression has reshaped our forests.
