Censorship: What To Do About It

Hello and welcome!

So there's a lot of talk about censorship especially on sites like Twitter and YouTube.  There's a lot of different types of people getting their videos demonetized, or removed entirely.  Some people are just out right banned from social media.

None of this is actually new.  Censorship has always been something that those with power do to those they don't like.  There's always excuses for it, like trying to make the world a better place, or protecting children.  But the real reason is that it's just fundamental disagreement.  Let's just say that you like mixing ketchup in scrambled eggs, and someone else hates that.  They make it illegal for you to mix the two, saying that it's a public health crises and children will be put in danger.

What do you do about it?  Well you have to use allegory and metaphor.  That's right, it's that simple.  To avoid all censorship, at least most of it, do not say what you want to say directly.  Instead, you need to say something that is indirect and obfuscated so that only those who are privy would understand.

In all my time creating art, I have been , and have witnessed others, subjected to censorship.  The people censoring are always the dumbest people on the planet.  These people are not bright in the slightest and should have no place dictating what people are allowed to say and do.  But for some cruel reason, the universe has made it possible for these dimwits to control the artistic, creative, and political lives of other people.

Because these people are so stupid, all you have to do is hide your actual message in allegory or metaphor.  Don't directly say or do what you want.  Instead, obfuscate your message so the stupid people trying to censor you have no idea what is happening.  But everyone who isn't a moron will know exactly what it is you are saying.  So you win.  Game over for the censors.
