Rupert Neve. You might not recognize his name, but his work changed your life. Neve was a pioneer in the music business, an engineer who designed studio equipment that is still highly sought after today. The Neve console at just one studio (Sound City in LA) recorded over 100 Gold and Platinum albums from Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, Metallica, and too many others to list.
Just a summary...
Phil Donahue loses his job for speaking out against war -- no fear of cancel culture
Dixie Chicks get banned for speaking out against war - no fear of cancel culture
Colin Kaepernick loses his job for protesting police violence - no fear of cancel culture
Gina Carano doesn't have her contract renewed after giving people deadly advice in the middle of a pandemic coupled with anti-semitism - CANCEL CULTURE IS OUT OF CONTROL!!!

Did my post seem to indicate that I didn't think that was the case?
To be clear, I don't care about Gina Carano. She is a largely forgettable actress. Disney can hire and fire whoever they want. The larger idea that only people who are "on the right side of history" are employable, though, is more than a little concerning.
The people who brought us McCarthyism, book burning, mass boycotts, murdering abortion doctors, enshrining Christianity in government policy and public life, suppressed anything critical of America in the name of patriotism (Phil Donohue and the Dixie Chicks lost their careers for questioning the Iraq War)...destroying people who literally did nothing wrong are suddenly obsessed with the nonsensical idea of 'cancel culture' because they're finally being held accountable for the rotten shit they actually say and do.
