Cancel culture has been all the rage for the past five years, and the furor over the societal trend is not settling down. It has become one of the hard left’s most cherished and valuable weapons to silence the expression of political opinions that violate the precepts of wokeism.

Helen Pluckrose, an author and former academic, became known after joining scholars James Lindsay and Peter Boghossian in crafting false scientific studies based on absurd subjects, such as rape culture among dogs and other topics three years ago. She recently launched Counterweight, a support group for individuals who have been on the wrong end of a cancel culture campaign at their jobs or elsewhere.
