When I tell N the recent news about people getting fired for saying something fifty years ago that contradicts the half-baked dogma of the last 5 seconds, he says, “It’s a good thing I don’t talk a lot!”
And it’s true. The best way to stay employed is to avoid expressing opinions, joking, posting anything online, and ideally just to keep silent for the entirety of your life until you are ready to retire.
There is no constitution, no law, no freedom of speech guarantee that can defend one from unhinged crowds ready to pounce on anybody who can be revealed as a sinner against the fresh iteration of dogma. This is also a manifestation of ageism because the longer you live, the more the dogma mutates.
