Censors with matches

Your boss has thin skin. He just can’t take a joke. His whole persona focuses on how he thinks others perceive him. His personality twists narcissism and insecurity in a tempestuous entwining of vipers.

He has power over you. You have to watch what you say. You can never let down your guard. The most minute slight on his character will see you demoted or fired.

Working for this man is a living hell.

But worse. There are goings on in the business which you feel obligated to whistle blow. But you dare not. This boss of yours has instated a new policy of information suppression and rebuttal oppression.You can’t argue. You can’t voice your opposing opinion. You risk your livelihood entertaining the most meager of alternate arguments.

If you swim against the current you will be called out, kicked out and black listed.

He will see that you “never work in this town again.”

Your boss has started censoring information. He meets behind closed doors with cronies issuing mandated corrections to accusations. He proposes a zero tolerance policy of counter-beliefs. He and his cabinet starts to actively influence news outlets, controlling what they can or cannot print or say. He prohibits non-approved reporters from press conferences and those he does allow — all of their questions have been pre-vetted to avoid all embarrassment.

The age of the Censor has returned. Hide your matches.


“Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen!”

“The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”

“The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior”

“We’re losing a lot of people because of the internet,” Trump said. “We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.”
