Contagious Censorship

Recently I have been censored three times. Twice on that shitbook Facebook, and once on another blog. It is a mild and inconsequential form of censorship, and I don't yet qualify for a campaign by PEN... Nevertheless it makes me feel uneasy and a little angry. I have been wondering whether those subjected to state and religious and cultural censorship, internalise this urge to censor, and so perpetuate not only the silence on certain issues, but the lack of frankness, the distrust of piss-taking.
