The key is to defend the independence of editors from all of their enemies. And those enemies are not all in The Woke Mob.
Maureen Lipman is the latest in a long line of artists and writers to complain about the chilling effect Cancel Culture can have on the arts. I have some sympathy with her view. Don’t risk sophisticated witticisms. Appease that lowest common denominator that has a bad-faith agenda, or an inability to process irony.
Does this sound familiar?
