To "cull" means to pick out from others. "Culling Voices" is about the social media age and the "rage mobs" that declare people guilty without trial and then proceed to destroy their lives. Judge, condemn, and banish any and everyone
Only the whispers from within
Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan experienced this phenomenon firsthand in June 2018 when an anonymous Twitter user accused him in a long string of tweets
of raping her after a show. After this, more accusations came forward on Reddit
. As of 2019, no one ever pressed charges or came forward to claim these accusations as their own.
Keenan responded to the accusations by tweeting out thanks
to those who "saw right through this despicable false claim" and shaming those who "perpetuate this destructive clickbait."
