If one is attempting to implement the Ministry of Truth into a society where free speech is a prized possession of most individuals, a full-frontal attack simply will not work. So what to do? One must convince the individuals in that society that people need to be protected from "fake" sources of information so that they do not become confused. And you need to convince each individual that this is not needed for them specifically, but rather it is needed for those other, poor, ignorant, defenseless people that cannot properly discern the truth from fiction. In this way, those in power are attempting to silence their critics by having unfettered control over the flow of information to the masses. If you think suppressing "fake news" is a good thing, please think again. It is simply a thinly-veiled attack on our freedom of speech. We need to fight vigorously against this ongoing movement to control the free flow of information.
