Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The world becomes an Orwellian nightmare when the only way to fight lies is with more lies.

I agree with everything but the tense of the verb.  The only defense we have for our tenuous grasp on sanity is to cling tightly to what we "know" is true.  OTOH, in a world where Gresham's Law, as applied to truth, dominates rhetorical discourse, perhaps turning the debasement of truth that has, to this point, primarily served those with power against the interests of those very powerful may give them reason to consider the nature and value of truth.
