There's a reason they pile on an individual and don't try to implement their rule unilaterally. The separating you out from the herd and utterly destroying you is vicious but effective. All too often people will be glad its not them and keep their heads down. But as the bodies pile up one by one, the fear increases and also the feeling everyone is on their own.Although I can understand completely why people would want to stay on the fence or keep their heads down because of the animals and their cancel culture BS being a very real threat to employment...
...It's the people who ride the fence and/or run and hide that ARE the power the SJWs wield. I don't think I could function in today's PC workplace knowing that every person I worked with was either going to be a #metoo/social climbing power tripper, or too utterly cowardly to tell the actual truth when one of the nutcases LARPed their latest intrigue into the HR dept. After everything the public in general has seen with false accusations and companies willing to completely fuck over their best people on the word of whatever victim walks through the door, they should understand that they arent immune to being the next witch being hunted.
Yet people continue to remain silent out of fear. Their fear is the power being used against everyone. Until that changes, nothing changes.
other things have made it worse
- attackers can invade someone's life, wreck it, get the fuck out and live a life devoid of repercussions of their behavior. This is new and thanks to social media
- activist media. If you can align your attack with a cause de jour, the media will move into your camp and carry your version of events.
