Censorship has always been an issue of concern for me. Sometimes censorship plays a well role in keeping the innocent from rusty and harm full topics, and other times it keeps the majority of people from the truth. There is a truly fine line between censorship and wether it is good or bad is something you have to personally decide depending in the situation you are in. However, one must never fear from speaking up.

Dystopia may sound a bit far fetched for now in western countries, but it's there around the world. I understand how it may become a ghost over your shoulders.

I think it's here already, with things like the patriot act, or ACTA, SOPA, PIPA, and many others. And the inevitability factor increases exponentially.

love this idea of mute.. sensor.. people are born to look sucsessful, if your not, then hide it.. its like that where i live. if you depressed, you are fail. Im learned to not speak about my illness, my inner madness, my dark side, they just want the sunny side, the sucsessfull side. The good part of me, my work, my children, my house, my things, my car, for the left heart broken things, there we have the mute

It's not expert level photoshop. One use the clone stamp tool to first erase the mouth / lips on the original picture. Second, use a smudge tool to blur a pair of lips to make a weird muted lips. Third, place them over on to where the lips aren' there. Finally, Add texture, and color grading to your liking. Done!

great but eerie picture...

this is how we might all end up. and i doubt very much that it is the price for security.

what good is peacefullness if it leads to dead silence?!
