Some may tire of the parallels continually drawn between current governments and George Orwell’s “1984”.
You know who doesn’t tire of them?

From “1984”:
“The Ministry of Truth, which concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts…to supply the citizens of Oceania with newspapers, films, textbooks

From the “CISA Cybersecurity Advisory Committee, Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Misinformation and Disinformation Subcommittee Meeting, April 12, 2022”:
“How can CISA inspire innovators to partner with the government in a way that catalyzes availability of trusted information without being seen as government propaganda?”

So the next time one of our new geniuses scoffs at the implication of similarities between “1984” and the present day whims of our governments, asking “where are the giant screens with the guy on them and the plain drab clothing?”, we only need remind ourselves of the slogan of the Ministry of Truth – “Ignorance is Strength”, and bow concededly to one of our new masters…
