Censorship the eXile Way
 
 

As the eXile noted in our last issue, there's been a lot of whining lately about the "return of censorship to Russia." Frankly, most of this bellyaching is by people who don't have a clue about how to do censorship right. We feel that the real reason censorship gets such a bad press is that most of the time it's left to amateurs. And that's where we come in. Just hand over control of all organs of repression (police, army, security services) and watch our dust as we show you censorship as it should be done -- censorship the eXile way.

Now before any of you so-called liberals start complaining, you need to know that us intellectuals decided a long time ago that there's always censorship, even in your so-called "free societies." Read your Marcuse, read your Foucault, read your latest newsletter from the Homeland Security Service. The authorities are agreed, ladies and gentlemen: there's always censorship, and anybody who doesn't know that is just a dumb old hick from the sticks.

Us intellectuals realized a long time ago that no human society could function without heavy-duty jamming all signals that might allow people to see reality. Because reality is so downright horrible we have to jam it tighter than Castro. The only question is who's going to decide what gets jammed and how to jam it. We aim to show you here that your best bet is exchanging the kind of censorship we have now -- sloppy, cruel and depressing -- for the eXile brand, which we guarantee will put more fun in your life, if only because you'll get to see a lot of smug, famous media personalities humiliated, gangraped and executed along the way.
