kill imagination

dictators kill imagination

they have to

otherwise we will imagine the future

without them

one tool is censorship

though they will never call it this

it is forming the style of conversation

shaping future conflict

ending hate speech

cutting the oxygen of publicity

adding labels

to help you prejudge opinion

setting the agenda

for ideas that don’t fit our consensus

& some of you will go along with this

otherwise you’d have to think

for yourself

& that is what dictators

rely on being difficult

& never want you to do
