How to stand up to cancel culture? -

Never apologise. Ever. Anyone comes after your workplace or tries to subject you to a struggle session, refuse. Struggle sessions and re-education are also traps. It is not just them demonstrating their power over you by making you suffer, but also to gather blackmail material for future cancellation attempts. "Oh, but Bob Smith admitted to being a racist misogynist!" And there goes your new job or any attempt to recover.

I think the only long term solution is to hide your powerlevel well enough until you are in positions of authority where you can push back without being detected. For instance, if an SJW comes to you for a job, and their social media shows them pulling down statutes, taking selfies with Greta Thunberg, or "bashing the fash," decide that another candidate is better qualified. Or start your own business (after all, nobody got rich working for other people).

Lawfare might work as well. Civil proceedings against specific people who try to harass you or defame you out of a job with the intention of getting money judgements against them and bankrupting them is a very solid motivation. An Australian railway company did this against XR types who kept blocking their lines because they didn't like how the railway company transported coal. It was very effective because the woke mobs are likely to be well off enough that a Court judgement and bankruptcy could actually hurt them.

If you're in law enforcement or similar, how about deprioritising calls or complaints by anyone who shrieks about abolishing the police and so forth. Oh, I'm sorry we couldn't come to investigate how your wife was pack-raped, Mr SJW, we were all engaged on higher priority work at that exact moment. Of course, it will have to be believable.

This or get an ancestry test done and pray you have Jewish ancestors. This will only protect you from run of the mill SJWs. If big media is after you no amount of kosher blood will save you.
Sadly, this won't work. If you are a POC who isn't in total lockstep with these people, you will be labelled as suffering from internalised oppression and you will be cancelled even harder.

If all accusations are baseless, lean in as hard as you can, make as many jokes as you can to egg them on, and make anyone trying to cancel you to sperg out as hard as possible so it's clear to everyone that wants to try for clout to pick an easier target, and for the dedicated to make as many wrong moves possible for you to build a case in court.
There's no reasoning with argumentation now, and no hard evidence is enough to vindicate you if you're in the right. All it boils down to now is two parties trying to feel the most right in their own moral frameworks of mutually exclusive ideas, while the person at the center gets fucked in the dirt. If everyone is tired of this shit and are aware of the tactics that are being used, throw a wrench into their plans by not laying down and dying like a smash player.
Don't make any capitulation to the thoughts and accusions of someone who would cancel you, don't entertain any thought in their heads geared towards cancelling people is nothing more than a tumor, and let them know that

This might actually be the most important thing. SJWs/cancel culture fans gain power through entryism, and it can snowball rapidly once one of them gets to a position in HR. Deny them that avenue whenever humanly possible - they'd certainly do the same or worse to you. Abandon any pretext whatsoever of "playing fair" with these people - they don't know the meaning of the term.

You literally cant. Any business or person I've worked with, no matter how independent or wealthy or independently wealthy, will eventually break. Something happens and it's usually the payment networks.

The first step to killing cancel culture is breaking the fucking necks of Mastercard and Visa.

Yeah, people think the payment networks “will” be the last to go like it’s still in the future but the reality is the System is wholly compromised. All of it.

I cannot fully say what the real answer is, but I think some things may help.

Obviously, not buying “woke” products is step number one. This is especially easy when most “woke” channels are that of entertainment. Continuing the trend of killing Hollywood through low tv ratings and ticket sales is a good start. You may also want to avoid streaming services you disagree with, just stick to YouTube in this modern era. As for YouTube, it is self-explanatory, just avoid SJW channels, heck, maybe even the anti-channels. If politics online is deemed unprofitable, the traction of such will decrease and less are likely to act as activists. People will claim it is impossible to destroy Hollywood, but the slow demise of companies, like Disney, at the moment says otherwise.

Voting for not-mainstream candidates can also help. Trump has obviously been brought up in here, but there is a bit of truth to it. Trump is sort of leading to the destruction of TV and his audience is on a power trip of taking out multiple corrupt individuals. The other day my Liberal, Biden-loving parents were laughing about how Trump was bringing parties together as Bush‘s administration is giving support to Biden. While they think this will help him, to me this shows a last ditch effort to keep the old. Why would the Bush administration, the people who got us into an unjust war, care about America so much to go against Donald. They are probably trying to save themselves amongst the changing times of Trump America. The reactions of businesses and politicians to Trump is a sign that he is helping as they all seem genuinely terrified of him, as if their comfortable positions are now more threatened than ever.

Other things to keep note of
1) Never apologize unless it is something actually serious. A joke or Tweet being brought back up should be ignored.
2) Be anonymous and stay out of things. It is better to be an observer than a participant.
3) Keep a distinction between online and off. AVGN does this to much praise.
4) Stay out of debate circles or politics. You will never win online! Also by avoiding you create less politics online.
5) Find what makes you happy. Be apart of groups dedicated to games or movies, etc.. Non-political groups typically have less drama.
6) Stay off Twitter or FaceBook. Talk to people on smaller sites such as forums. Twitter and FaceBook are made to make you look bad and house the most unreasonable of people. Find sites that promote discussion, not hot takes.

If you are anti left then you are pro white. Doesn't matter if your skin darker then an army boot thats how its going be.

Which means you have to make the case for benign white supremacy. Which would be white being the perfect candidate for a socialistic vanguard party for everyone else.

As many here have said over and over again this identity politics is a class war against the working class under the guise of ending racism.

The plutocrats want one thing. They want all the power and all the wealth. Once they get rid of white people the plutocrats will go fleece everyone else. Once there nothing to take the non white working class going get violent. Which will lead to the rich white plutocrats to drop the mask and going to react with extreme prejudice.

Leading to the genocide of non whites along class lines under ther guise of ending racism Ironic is you think aboutit.

The reason plutocrats hate white people is cause they have a long history of being defiant against unjust powerful people.

Of course powerful people dont like it when folks get uppity and demanding things like fairness, human rights and the such.

Foster a community that supports your stance. Stand strong and never placate to the whims of those who wish to see you fail. Invest in yourself and build infrastructure to keep yourself going even if you become a target and abandoned by the majority. Laugh at them publicly when they fail to bring you down.

I honestly don't see any armed conflict coming about purely from the woke mob itself, and it'll easily get stomped if it tries to overpower through force (to my knowledge, the Right in America is the side with all the guns).

Don't pander in the first place. Don't try to be woke, don't try to appeal to the left, don't mess up your own creative endeavors for them if you're not left in the first place. If you stick to your guns and just act as or believe in what you really believe in, they have very little ammo to do so in the first place. If you're not feeling good about it, then fucking stop. Easy.

Own your past and your mistakes and don't treat them like things you should be ashamed of. Laugh at it, move on. Don't address it at length, don't try to make excuses for them and dig a deeper hole for yourself. What people commonly forget is the universal fact that all of us are human and cannot be perfect, and that we'll mess up along the way once in a while. This is not special, it doesn't stop applying to people when applicable. Of course, this doesn't apply to shit worth laughing at or scrutinizing.

I think it helps to stand your ground, but it helps better if you don't double down on your autism. Don't shit bricks or shit on someone's porch because they say you should be cancelled. Reduce the amount of ammo they can find. If they are only talking about your past, then you don't act retarded in the present for them to act justified. If you do fight back, I think about the ChilledChaos debacle from awhile back. Fight back with evidence and receipts. Archive everything. If they're lying, call them out, show receipts, lawyer up if they persist for defamation.

Honestly, just don't be famous, man. Only famous people get cancelled, whether in their own personal community or on a national/global basis.

Honestly, think of internet cancel culture no differently than you would middle school bullies or an abusive spouse, because they use all the same tactics.

No matter how much you want to, you're never going to actually "win" a battle against bullies or abusive spouses, because any interaction is just playing their game and furthering the drama. The only real solution in either of these cases is to leave the environment and render them irrelevant in your life. Like others have said, don't apologize. Apologizing is reinfoircing the idea that you're playing their game. If anything, they can get an "I'm sorry you feel that way", and then you leave.

In the case of cancel culture, that means not socializing with these dipshits to begin with or at the very least, keeping your encounters with them as limited as possible. If you have to have any contact with them online, do it in a way that's anonymous so they can't bother you in real life. In real life, keep your professional life separate from your personal life. One of the biggest risks for encountering cancel culture is combining your internet life, personal life, and professional life into one big social media blob.

If this is infecting your workplace, you should probably start looking for a new job or even consider changing careers. Being a grown adult and trying to work around people who act like a bunch of middle schoolers is not a healthy environment in any context, and a red flag that you need to get the fuck out of there to protect your own sanity.

Sadly, you're going to have to accept that some of your hobbies are contaminated and you'll never be able to really participate in the social aspect of them without encountering these crazy bastards. So it might be a good idea to just come to terms with enjoying stuff on your own for your own sake, or pursuing new hobbies in an entirely different direction.

It is because of this shit that i follow a single motto: You must crush society before society crushes you.
I'm in no way advocating for a revolt or a chimpout. But leaving society and living how i want to live? Now that's good. Sure, i will not achieve greatness or get filthy rich, but i will as sure will not fuel that unholy monster that is pushing us down and living happy while i can. How? By taking my grandpa's farm and becoming self employed away from everything.

As for hobbies, many of my friends have already told me that since everything today is turning to shit or getting twisted in such a way they become less than the shadow of what they were, we better get to create our own for our own enjoyment. Make something crazy, funny, edgy... However you want and pass it around your buds. Learn from it, refine it, get better and you and your bros will enjoy what you make. And you can also go back to play cards and board games. They never get old

Everything they do is for power or control. Dont talk to them cause they only want submission.

If you want avoid having them hassle you its best to have more power then them. Take notch who invented minecraft. He is rich so they cant take his living from him. They are bullies and target and can affect the weak.

There is agorism and counter economic. Work on creating a parallel economic system. Stop buying from wallmart and buy from the local farmer.

Best thing you can do long term is prepare for the collapse. Outwait them and let nature take care of them.

This is so truthful...
The fact is, cancel culture is an unsustainable culture that will inevitably kill itself. The fact is, everyone has said or done bad things and the leaders of these movements are no exception. Half the time, they are likely equally as bad as the cancelled. The culture is a U-turn that will inevitably end with opposite results to how it started, if not the destruction of a movement.

Take Keemstar for example. The dude was dog piled by Leafy and Grade, only for the U-turn to take place and put Keem back on top while Leafy and Grade are seen as the drama enemies of YouTube. A more recent example of such would be the Biden accusation fiasco. After the left spent months trying to cancel Brett over a faulty accusation, the tides turned this year as key spokesmen at the time, Biden, is being accused of the same thing. In response, we see nothing but absolute hypocrisy and a split in the #MeToo movement as the idea that a Dem did wrong seems foreign to at least half the audience. Cancel culture is only built to implode in on itself. Either everyone turns out bad, or a movement is destroyed because their narrative no longer stands.
