In The Battle Against Cancel Culture, It’s Time For A Youth Rebellion
[Buck Throckmorton]

A recent opinion piece in the New York Post has been flying around, creating spinoff stories on Fox News and elsewhere, about how to fight cancel culture. Cancel Culture Is Out Of Control and Gen-X Is Our Only Hope

If Gen Xers want to spare our own kids having to live in the new East Germany these woke maniacs are trying to build, we can’t go on wearing our sunglasses at night. We have to do something, and we have to do it soon.

However, it really doesn’t say anything about how Gen-X might fight cancel culture – just to fight it. Sadly, those Gen-x-ers who are not already a part of Team Cancel Culture are the ones who have the most to lose because they are in their prime earning years, thus they are least likely to engage in the fight.

What this country needs is a good old-fashioned youth rebellion. Although we all need to play a part in stopping cancel culture, Gen-Z needs to start acting like the youth of all previous generations and stand-up to their elders who have made them stand-down on living their lives.

Dear Gen-Z:

Stop being obedient momma’s boys and teacher’s pets. There is no gold star for being most obedient to the demands of humorless, middle-aged Prius drivers.

Question authority. Until proven otherwise, assume that anyone telling you how to live your life is corrupt and is motivated by self-interest.

Reject credentials. Assume that anyone with a fancy title is a highly skilled networker, but otherwise lacks actual knowledge or skills. This applies to Generals, Public Health Experts, Journalists, PHDs, Ivy Leaguers with lots of initials after their name, etc.

Reject the traditional college experience. (If you must get a degree, you can do so online for a fraction of what the University Industrial Complex charges.) The only part of the traditional “college experience” that still remains is drinking and sex. You can still do that without going $100,000 in debt.

Thumb your nose at uptight bluenoses. The youth of previous generations enjoyed shocking “church ladies.” Well right now this country is overrun with Church Ladies Of The Left shrieking about global warming, and white privilege, and Dr Seuss drawings. Offend them. And enjoy offending them. And just so there’s no confusion, at least 50% of “Church Ladies Of The Left” are actually men.

Reject food pretensions. If you are getting in the habit of only ordering healthy, locally sourced, organic food, you are being groomed to be an insufferable church lady when you hit middle age. Eat whatever you like. You are too young to be acting so pretentious.

Question the nation’s prevailing religious faith, which is now The Sustainable Organic Church of the Carbon Apocalypse. If you eat beef and drive a gas-powered car, you will not have committed a sin, nor will it negatively impact our planet. But the high priests will be offended, and that’s a good thing.

Above all else, when some humorless scold tries to cancel you, just say “No.” When you are asked to apologize for something you said, just say “Hell No.” When you are asked to atone for something you once wore, laugh in their face and phrase “No” however you feel appropriate.

Then get back to partying, rebelling, and offending.
