Are social justice movements having a damaging effect on our modern entertainment, and in turn, our culture?

James Wilson, 25

As an aspiring writer, I want to learn more about the craft I love and to tell the stories I want without feeling like there are an restrictions about what I can and cannot do. But now, I am seeing people attack any form of entertainment that does not align with their political world views. Ridiculing anyone who does not fall in line with their social justice mentality. Demanding that an individuals career must end because they said or did something that, in their opinion, was offensive. This sort of behaviour has leaked into the productive process of our mainstream media, and I believe it needs to stop. My script is an analysis of why I believe this sort of behaviour is toxic for the future of modern entertainment and our culture, while also attempting to start a conversation about why it should stop and what is the best way to move forward.
