That means that Social Security will have to support more people longer and mandatory retirement age will also have to be raised. IE people will have to lose their entitlements. It’s a political nightmare for elected officials.
Average life expectancy will rise in many countries by 2030, breaking through 90 years in some places, and policymakers need to make more efforts to plan for it, according to a large international study.
The Ministry of Truth is the propaganda ministry. As with the other ministries in the novel, the name Ministry of Truth is a misnomer because in reality it serves the opposite: it is responsible for any necessary falsification of historical events.
As well as administering truth, the ministry spreads a new language amongst the populace called Newspeak, in which, for example, “truth” is understood to mean statements like 2 + 2 = 5 when the situation warrants. In keeping with the concept of doublethink, the ministry is thus aptly named in that it creates/manufactures “truth” in the Newspeak sense of the word. The book describes the doctoring of historical records to show a government-approved version of events.
In Newspeak, the ministry is known as Minitrue.
Does this sounds like what the European Union is trying to do to hard some control as it falls apart? This is a dying beast that is giving its last strikes before it breaks apart.
The unelected executive arm of the European Union (EU) is threatening to escalate from “non-legislative” action if Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube do not censor what it considers “illegal” online speech within 24 hours.
In May of this year, the U.S. tech giants signed a “code of conduct”, promising to work with the Commission and national law enforcement to “criminalize” and “sanction” “individual perpetrators” as well as committing to “promoting independent counter-narratives” that the EU favours.
The European Union is demanding that Twitter, YouTube and Facebook censor “illegal hate speech” within 24 hours, content that includes so-called “fake news,” a term so broad that it includes perfectly legitimate news content.
Complaining that censorship is currently taking too long, EU commissioners are threatening to pass new laws if the “non-legislative approach” fails.
“The last weeks and months have shown that social media companies need to live up to their important role and take up their share of responsibility when it comes to phenomena like online radicalisation, illegal hate speech or fake news,” EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourová told The Financial Times.
Its a bill passed by Congress that can jail anyone giving misinformation about any government official or government entity based on a foreign power. Sounds reasonable right? We’re protecting our people from misinformation and fake news. Because people are not smart enough to figure things out themselves, Not so much.
Contrary to what the main stream medium says people most are pretty smart. Do you remember how those WikiLeaks emails from John Podesta where all other the internet? The main stream media kept saying those leaks came from Russian hackers. With this new bill if you mention any of those emails you are now guilty of treason.
That’s right. Even of the information is true AND there is no conclusive proof that the emails came from a foreign entity you can be imprisoned for life. Who decides if the information really can froma from a foreign entity? The people putting you into jail makes that call.
This meant to shut down the Alt Media and scare bloggers. A lot of secrets got exposed this election cycle. The government wants to get control of the flow of information on the internet. This is thier first step to do just.
There is no way this could hold against the Constitution. But someone is going to have to be the martyr to prove this out. Which means years in prison. These kind of tactics have to be stood up to. The Exile News Service will stand as long as it can.

We have the fight of the ages going on now. Kellogg’s recently dropped advertising Breitbart. Vanguard, the ad buyer for Kellogg’s, realized that Breitbart was in Kellogg’s buy group. Vanguard thought that Breitbart’s ultra-conservative stance would go against Kellogg standards so the news site was dropped from Kellogg’s ad rotation.
Since then Breitbart has waged a war on Kellogg’s for ‘supporting a liberal agenda.’ In response has setup a hash tag #dumpkelloggs and petition page with their side of the story. To date over 330,000 has signed the petition to boycott Kellogg’s products.
In response other advertisers are said to be removing their support from the Breitbart website in fear of being attacked. Currently the Kellogg’s Facebook page is flooded with negative comments from people who disagree with Kellogg’s position.
No one is in the wrong here. Kellogg’s has every right to drop advertising from whomever they want to. Breitbart has every right to attack Kellogg’s. But every decision has its consequences.
Each side is loosing customers and making enemies. Right now Breitbart is the only one that seems to be getting any positive press out of this. Kellogg’s just looks the big GMO producing corporate giant going against a the website popular with Kellogg’s core demographic.
