Our governments are attempting to push 1984 style lies on us, in everything from climate to Constitutional rights. They have the full complicity of newspapers and television networks.
But the big enemy of the Ministry of Truth is the Internet. Educated people spend more time on the Internet than they do watching television. A large percentage of Obama voters are poor uneducated people who have limited access to the Internet, and are easy to brainwash. Many are illiterate and vote more than once per election. That is why Democrats have been dumbing down the educational system for two generations.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Information is the key to keeping the tyrants at bay.
