“Now that progressives have complete control of Washington, they’ll escalate their lies — of commission, and especially of omission — to gain a tighter and more permanent grip. Still, Truth remains their real enemy. It explains social media’s current blitz of de-platforming conservatives, trying to drop an ‘iron curtain,’ just as Huxley predicted, to separate the people from undesirable facts.
Likewise, fidelity to truth is our best defense; that, and continuing to refuse their lies. That’s one positive action Solzhenitsyn was able to offer his comrades who felt powerless against the repressive Soviet system, ‘the most perceptible of its aspects’ being lies: ‘Personal non-participation in lies. Though lies conceal everything, though lies embrace everything, but not with any help from me.'”
