“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.”
If you haven’t read George Orwell’s book, 1984, in a long, long time — or if you’ve never read it — now is the time to do so. It’s particularly relevant these days when alternative facts (aka, lies) are being presented as valid options for actual facts (aka, the truth) and when real news is called fake and fake news is called real.
When the message offers you the truth, don’t shoot the messenger.
