why this book matters

The Cancel Culture Curse was written to expose the harmful practice of cancel culture, and to help put an end to it as soon as possible.

If you think that cancel culture affects only large corporations or A-list celebrities then think again. In fact, it is the average person who is most at risk. Every single human being that walks the planet makes mistakes and is therefore in danger of being struck down by cancel culture. This is true for individuals from every background imaginable, and for organizations across all industries.  

To be clear, this is not a political book, nor is it a thinly disguised attempt to advance a partisan agenda. Our principal aim is to expose the ugly face of cancel culture, and to make the case that this hateful and harmful practice needs to stop.  

The cancel culture curse is presently afflicting our society. But for the good of our nation, our culture, our world, and our future, we must band together to break the spell. This book is neither intended to settle all arguments, nor to be the final word on this topic. We remain hopeful that it will spark more discussions, and ideally, contribute in some small measure to making the world a more positive and forgiving place.

As a survivor of cancel culture who has fought back, I can attest that this book matters. It is an important part of the struggle for liberty and against the curse of conformity. One can agree or disagree with parts of it— read it and decide for yourself — but all who support freedom of speech must join in the authors’ war against those who would cancel our hard-earned rights.
