Is resisting anti-semitism cancel culture?
Suppose there were a set of children’s picture books and some of the characters in those books had obvious Jewish names and those characters were depicted with unnaturally long noses. Would it be cancel culture for a book store owner to refuse to carry those books? Or might he/she/they just be exercising good business sense in not wanting to insult a part of their customer base?

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
A serial killer likes to lock his victims in a cage for several days and then slowly crush them to death. Society finds this behavior morally reprehensible. The killer is captured, incarcerated, tried, found guilty and is then stoned to death. Society finds this behavior morally justified, even commanded by god. Morality is a matter of opinion and social convention, but opinion and social convention derived from an evolutionary imperative for survival of the population. We abhor the transgressor but adore the executioner.

The real culprit
Joseph Stalin - caused the death of millions od Russians and Ukrainians
Mao Tse Tung - caused death of over 10,000,000 Chinese during “communization” experiment
Pol Pot - caused death of millions of Cambodians during “deWesternization” campaign
The real culprit is not religion, but the placing of Dogma over humanity. Religion is just the perennial and most visible practicioner of this travesty.

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
I cant afford to give all that I have and throw myself on the altar of socialism.
You live in a socialist country (and benefit greatly from its socialist entities).
Every country on earth is partly capitalist and partly socialist. The US is 40% socialist. Out of its (pre-covid) GDP of $20trillion, $8trillion is based on socialist, i. e., government owned, controlled, and managed entities. I suspect that there are very few of these entities that you would be willing to forgo.
