The Censors by Luisa Valenzuela

"The Censors" is a satirical short story that delves into the life of a man who takes a job as a censor at a government agency in an attempt to intercept and approve his own letter, which he had previously sent abroad. As he becomes increasingly absorbed in his role, he starts to censor letters with zeal, losing sight of his original purpose. The story serves as a cautionary tale about the corrupting influence of power and the ease with which one can become complicit in oppressive systems, ultimately leading to a grim and ironic conclusion where the protagonist falls victim to the very system he sought to manipulate.
