Today, I feel like I live in zombie-land.

All these people are zombies. They all look the same, act the same, think the same. They do whatever their zombie leaders tell them and don't dare break the zombie code of zombieness.

They live their little zombie lives unaware of the great big world outside zombie-land. They have no idea that there are places in the world where non-zombies live in relative freedom.

Sometimes non-zombies can come live in zombie-land but they can never quite fit in. The zombies will point, stare, talk about, manipulate, steal from, and alienate them. A few zombies will befriend the non-zombies, but they can never fully understand each other. They come from too different a place.

Then when the zombie leaders decide to crack down on the internet so the zombies cannot find out what is happening in the outside world, the non-zombies who live in zombie land will become very sad. (cue: me).

I don't like the zombies/zombie-land today.

The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion.
