Nick Cave Speaks Out on Evolution of Cancel Culture

( — Australian musician Nick Cave discussed the evolution of cancel culture during an interview. He claimed he opposed cancel culture and found that people who attempt to end others’ careers for political beliefs lack mercy or empathy. Cave spoke to The Guardian about his beliefs regarding cancel culture and the immoral ways people cause others to lose their jobs and, in some cases, their livelihoods. According to Cave, people shouldn’t attack people’s careers because of controversial comments or political statements.

When talking about cancel culture, Cave claimed that he supports the concept of social justice and advocates against bigotry or discrimination. Cave’s issue with the growing cancel culture movement lies in the methods people use to have someone “canceled,” which often results in personal attacks and attempts to have the person in question fired or banned from social media. Cave said that he fundamentally disagrees with the methods used by people involved in cancel culture and that said methods are indicative of a more significant societal issue.

Cave claims that growing conservative movements across the world have caused cancel culture to deviate from its initially noble and somewhat limited cause. According to the Australian musician, the growing presence of right-wing political movements has caused people with minor issues with conservatism to be grouped with far-left extremists, whom Cave described as “nutjobs” during his interview. Cave said that a proper political discussion is now impossible due to the heightened intensity on both sides of the political spectrum.

Cave also addressed misconceptions about his political beliefs, which he said began after he published a memoir in 2022. While writing his book, Cave described himself as a conservative, but he claimed that he didn’t mean to identify with any organized conservative political party. Cave specifically referred to Britain’s conservative party, known as the Tories, and said that he doesn’t support the party and hasn’t ever voted for the political organization. Cave instead described himself as someone who agrees with conservatism but not with any organized political philosophy.

Cave is preparing to release a new album with his band, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, which will drop towards the end of the summer. In September, Cave will start an international tour for the album “Wild God.”
