Morgan, a concerned father of three, stared nervously at the uploaded file he’d spent days working on, entitled ‘No Free Speech Equals Fascism.’
Heart pounding in his ears, he moved the cursor to hover dangerously over the SEND button.
Images began flickering in his mind like playback of stop-motion animation.
Bloodthirsty Twitter posts, hateful headlines,
death threats to his children, rape threats to his wife,
vulturous journos picking away at his past,
termination of employment,
knocks at his door.
Awareness returning, his eyes landed on the framed picture at his desk: beaming children, darling wife.
He sighed and pressed ‘cancel’ instead.
