The GenZ Paradox: My Progressive Attitudes vs Intolerance Of Others

As I dive into Channel 4's new research show BeyondZ, I can't help but notice the belief system among my generation, GenZ. It's a belief system that revolves around the idea of 'cancelling' people, a notion that some of us seem to hold dear. I can't deny that there's a lack of tolerance for those who don't share our worldview. It's disheartening to see this illiberal servitude among us, especially when we consider our progressive views on gender and multiculturalism, which often surpass those of older generations. It's a paradox, a contradictory notion that sets GenZ apart from other generations and adds to the generational labels we carry, such as 'YIPs', or Young Illiberal Progressives.
