NOT advocating this. Just noticing how sometimes there is a sort of 'comedy' in the IRONIES... i don't think that people understand that 'the golden rule' is in effect whether one KNOWS it exists or not. The 'golden rule' isn't so much a RULE that can be obeyed, or disregarded... It's more of an OBSERVATION about human interaction... So a person, group, or entity, can IMAGINE that the 'golden rule' doesn't apply to themselves, but it's not a 'rule' in that sense. It's more like GRAVITY... a person can IMAGINE that they can rebel against the "LAW" of gravity, but it won't matter -- GRAVITY is still affecting them... just like the 'golden rule' and it's corollaries/etc... When a person ENGAGES in "cancel culture", their ACTIONS state that they believe the ACTION they are taking is RIGHT and OK [otherwise they'd have to admit that what they are doing is wrong/evil] and necessary to engage in 'canceling' against others who aren't in alignment with themselves, and these same people who resist the idea that there's any kind of 'ultimate right or wrong' are invoking and inviting the same from others -- so other can invoke it too, with the assumption that it's 'right' when dealing with this person. This is called 'BE the change you want to see in the world'. So, the 'BE' that they are 'BE-ING' (and subsequently showing OTHERS how they want to be treated) by INVOKIING their 'powers'/'rights' [all are created equal with the same invokable rights] can be used 'against' them... And the cancelers can be canceled against, because they have said, with their actions, i believe i am doing the right thing, by engaging in canceling those whom i do not agree with, and those who will not BOW to my insistence of the way i think things should be. And by DOING this 'right' action, they are showing behavior/actions to others as examples of how they think others should also be... But they are SO short sighted, they have not even TRIED to think through the implications of how if setting that example encourages others to also act in that way, that it can circle back to them. Ignorance of the Golden Rule does NOT magically negate the effects of the golden rule. Ignorance of gravity does NOT allow one to escape it.
