Orwellian society?

I agree , I feel forum format is the ideal manner for sharing different ideas and thought processes as well as just getting to hear a perspective from an actual person who can listen without fear of judgement for my own ignorance. I have some one a crime stat , it was the same stats they have been using for close to 50 years I told them the stats where I got the data and they said it was an anomaly ! Or they wasn’t aware of that stat. I was like when it was negative on certain people it was the fact of the day but now it can’t be trusted. I just shook my head.
