Not receiving the attention you think your writing deserves is not evidence of censorship. I suspect very few of us think our work receives the attention it deserves. Just about every writer thinks they’ve just published a feature article. I’ve written several articles with a leftward bent that have gone nowhere, even after removing them from behind the paywall. That includes one on my experience with single-payer healthcare and another on poverty (though the second is still behind the paywall). Another, which was critical of ideology (left or right) and not exactly warm to identity politics was featured. Regardless, medium isn’t the only game in town. My stuff is published on two different websites, one of which has an ideological agenda I generally disagree with. In addition, I now share the hell out of my stuff on Twitter. Get busy and start promoting your work. I respect writers who are persistent. Playing the victim card because you’ve been rejected or aren’t receiving the number of claps you think your entitled to isn’t going to get you anywhere. For the record, I received notification of this article in an email from Medium, so congratulations.
