The Voiceless Worker
A problem not considered a problem
All persons should be allowed their voice, workplace if public institution or private corporation should matter little,
The censorship of such prevents personal development, while a worker is in their prime, to have rules against political speech should be prohibited, guardrails are needed, a system may be in order to create, but it should be done,
Many during careers keep their heads low, they know their place they think, but actually don’t, they know some other’s place instead, there is disincentive to be a thinker, an originator, a better employee,
To interfere with free speech, or retaliate to it after the fact stifles society, only stunting potential growth.
This voiceless worker is a big problem, never discussed, the organization or its owners want complete control, they earned it after all,
This is understandable, but such is only doing harm to themselves, creativity certainly is stunted by such,
Good ideas are never aired out, but are forgotten, a buried treasure which remains in the ground lost perhaps indefinitely,
There should be guidelines of course, but ones of latitude, ones that are reasonable for a growing citizen to continue to grow.
Finding one’s authentic voice is perhaps the unheralded top achievement in one’s life, to restrain this for unreasonable demand seems actual cruelty, and the benefits are unrealized,
The First Amendment does only apply to governmental control, but many actually in government are prohibited by policy as well, it always seemed nonsensical to me,
This seems to be so simple to correct, it requires some amount of trust, but trust is usually given anyway,
I suspect I haven’t been in the shoes with bad publicity striking directly, but it seems like a ton of precaution for an once of risk, and hierarchical institutionalization although easier, has its drawbacks as well, such as in this,
So I would like to see this censorship revisited, with guidelines which allow freedom, which allow the flow of thought,
This is my free flowing thoughts of a matter which I observed as a pitfall for many years,
And it’s only getting worse according to some,
Please let’s have freedom of speech reinvigorated, it seems to be a change due, with it comes responsibility, but responsibility is a wide sickle bar, it must start somewhere,
Perhaps I’m missing the whole picture, perhaps my idealism is conducting the train, but it has been aired out.
Perhaps this is all one problem with the machinery of our democracy, and others are more crucial to concentrate upon in the continued experiment, but perhaps those voting would increase in numbers in America with more buyin during prime of life and career.
