2019: Twenty-Eight

Off-late, I’ve been reading a lot of good fiction writing and a lot of good non-fiction longform journalism. I’ve also been fortunate to have time on my hands to watch some documentaries and docu-series that have sparked several thoughts in my head. The stand-out theme for me has been how much partisanship actually exists in the media and in literature, and in every piece of art that is created.

It’s got me thinking about whether biases that exist need to be warded off, or whether an attempt to censor using bias would create an outcome that is restrictive of speech. I’m inclined to believe the latter, especially since censoring bias would achieve the same effect that allowing for a dominant ideology to pervade would.

Let me know what you think!
