“Just after Elon Musk bought Twitter, promising more freedom, the Biden administration announces a new government agency to ‘protect’ Americans and the world from harmful disinformation, especially about the COVID pandemic. It is called the Disinformation Governance Board, although some would call it the Minitrue, short for Ministry of Truth, the ministry of propaganda in George Orwell’s novel 1984. The abbreviation differs from KGB by only one letter. There is the First Amendment, of course, but there is precedent for disregarding it, especially in war. … Americans believe they have freedom, but freedom to seek knowledge is increasingly constrained.” (05/10/22)
