@christa I kind of feel lile cancel culture is getting it all wrong, one has to understand the socio-political and historical background of the content you consume. Of course most of te works created in the past are mysoginous for example, but there are a lot of other interesting lectures one can do. I have read people saying that we should cancel the Greeks non ironically for example, which to me is naïve to say the least.

@suzyxwvu based on what I know of this book and what I've read of adrienne maree brown's other work I don't think this book addresses what you're describing, which I interpret as criticisms of historical texts. I expect this to be instead about restorative justice w/r/t interpersonal relationships within current and existing movements, which I'm interested in! I know cancel culture can mean a lot of things to different folks, but I think the non-strawman version of it is someone doing a wrong and being seen as irredeemable (and the social fallout that happens because of and in campaigns to support that belief), which falls in line with how I understand this book to mean it. I think we need to have ways of moving past that, particularly within social justice movements
