  1. Since it didn't work out for Jared Letto playing as the Joker. Maybe this will work out better for him. It looks good. It's a matter of when they release it for everyone to watch.

  2. I think there needs to be a distinction between Free speech and Bullying. A lot of the negative actions in the present all have the same denominator. Bullying. Many people have the mentality of "I don't like what you said so I'll rally some folks and shame you". I may be wrong but that is how I see cancel culture. Lambasting a person whether the intentions are good or bad, it's still a form of bullying. You commit one mistake and you are branded for life. And because of that mistake, your mental health takes a toll. I don't know if people are much harsher now or are much weaker mentally.

  3. I would say we agree with our sentiments, but our use of language is different. I think when we use the term 'free speech' we are thinking about it in a different way. for example, you mentioned social media amplifying a message and said that is not free speech. in my own concept of it, that would qualify as free speech. so from that, I understand where you are coming from better. from this basis, I agree with you whole heartedly, free speech is important. you brought up the fact you are asian and that brought to mind the situation in hong kong. Their free speech has been taken from them and that is awful. that kind of freedom of expression is very important. I also find it interesting what you say about responsibility. I believe that this is essential. should this not be enshrined in law in some way? because we can say that leaders should be responsible, but many influencers are not responsible and there is nothing we can do about it. I think this may be why cancel culture could be a good thing. JK Rowling is being cancelled by a lot of people now, because she is a major influencer and she is using that platform to attack LGBT people. well, I am sure that she has a right to voice her opinion, but at what point does that become hate speech? maybe Mr Atkinson is right? maybe this conversation should play out? Maybe in so doing, people can show JKR how she is wrong?
