„Censors are dead men
set up to judge between life and death.“

Censors (1929)
Kontext: Censors are dead men
set up to judge between life and death.
For no live, sunny man would be a censor,
he'd just laugh.

„A dead language is not only one no longer spoken or written, it is unyielding language content to admire its own paralysis. Like statist language, censored and censoring.“

—  Toni Morrison American writer 1931 - 2019

Nobel Prize Lecture (1993)
Kontext: A dead language is not only one no longer spoken or written, it is unyielding language content to admire its own paralysis. Like statist language, censored and censoring. Ruthless in its policing duties, it has no desire or purpose other than maintaining the free range of its own narcotic narcissism, its own exclusivity and dominance. However moribund, it is not without effect for it actively thwarts the intellect, stalls conscience, suppresses human potential. Unreceptive to interrogation, it cannot form or tolerate new ideas, shape other thoughts, tell another story, fill baffling silences.
