Reply To: Scene with actor/registered sexual offender ordered cut from film

David Kennerly

This impulse, to purge former “sex offenders” forever from society, is the most salient characteristic of social purification movements in which the “impure” are to be permanently cast-out from society while also publicly signaling ones own impeccable moral probity.

To counter these facile virtue signals which have overtaken our world today, we must be prepared to call them out individually whenever and wherever they occur. It is really important that they not go unchallenged. It is only through consistent and dogged responses to this din of shrieking illiberalism that we will begin to make a difference.
