Our agency has been merged with another and the new one is more proactive about monitoring our private social media. We were vaguely warned about not posting ‘political’ content which may be difficult for me.


Because, frankly, is every aspect of our lives not political in the sense that it stems from the distribution of power in our society. I know that if I write about a fundraising drive at my kids’ school my overseeing overlords would probably not view it as political, but I certainly do. If public education was properly funded in the first place, then there would be no need for school fundraising. If I write about making and hiding rocks in parks that would probably not be seen as political, but I literally argued with my local council for years before they built the local park on reserved land. I physically took my local counsellors down to view the site. As far as I’m concerned, the park exists because of lobbying. If I mention money troubles, surely that is inseparable from the wage gap, funding for public servants, the cost of out of school care, etc, all of which seem like issues about the distribution of power to me.


What can I possibly talk about?
