So listen up ’cause you can’t say nothin’. You shut me down with a push of your button.

‘Cause what you see you might not get.

We’re talking about words. And I don’t believe there is any word that needs to be suppressed.

Imagine books and music and movies being filtered and homogenized. Certified. Approved for consumption. People will be happy to give up most of their culture for the assurance that the tiny bit that comes through is safe and clean. White noise.

Imagine a world of silence where any sound loud enough or long enough to harbor a deadly poem would be banned. A world where people are afraid to listen, afraid they’ll hear something behind the din of traffic. Some toxic words buried in the loud music playing next door. Imagine a higher and higher resistance to language. No one talks because no one dares to listen. The deaf shall inherit the earth.

And the illiterate.

-Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby, 2003
