Protecting Yourself From Doxing and Cancel Culture

Doxing is a weapon that the Left uses to go after their opponents. Doxing is the act of exposing someone's personal information publicly in hopes of opening up that person and their family to massive amounts of harassment and intimidation. Some folks have even lost their job due to being doxed, and a few have even been driven to suicide. The doxer will expose the names of your spouse, children, grandchildren,  and employers, along with their addresses and telephone numbers. They have even been known to reveal the name and address of their victim's church and even their kids' schools. Doxing is a vicious attempt at intimidation and bullying. 

Cancel culture is another weapon of the Left. It is an attempt to get people they dislike or disagree with "canceled" from their lives. Among other things, Leftist activists will demand that employers fire their victim, that social media and Internet platforms ban them, that banks and financial institutions remove them as customers, and threaten their family, friends, and even churches in an attempt to get them to renounce that person. The idea is to isolate the victim as much as possible, and make life extremely difficult for them. 

How do you protect yourself from doxing and being canceled? This is a huge topic, and frankly you needed to have started on it years ago. Most importantly, protect your personal information. Don't overshare on social media. Be especially aware of revealing personal information such as addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, where you (or your spouse) works, where your kids go to school, where you bank, go to church, and so forth. Make sure your spouse and other family members know the importance of not oversharing on social media or elsewhere.

It is also important to know who you do life with and to build strong relationships with them. Who are your family, friends, fellow church members, employers... Are these people going to rally around you when the Left comes after you? Or will they give in, not wanting to deal with the pressure and bad publicity? Or worse, are they Woke and actually agree with those targeting you? Be especially careful of Woke family members. We don't want to remove these people from our lives because they are family, but in truth they are untrustworthy when it comes to these political and social divides. It is time - past time, actually - to take a hard look at who we do life with. Create your own tribe.
