Censorship and total freedom
Are extremes of the same spectrum,
Both removed from the more healthful midway thought.
Both conditions are off-center:
One won’t say what must be mentioned
And the other keeps declaring what must not.
Tight control can keep us silent,
But by sharing without a filter,
We just end up paying disrespects in kind.
Darkness grows when left unfettered.
Serve a regulated freedom.
Light shines only when our comments are refined.
