Today on Culture Shift, Barry Farah talks about the “memory hole” where embarrassing information gets incinerated. This was first showcased by George Orwell in the novel, 1984. Barry describes the memory hole in light of a recent attempt by some U.S. senators to quash the testimony and otherwise erase the evidence presented by other Senators related to the 2020 election. In addition to Big Tech assuming the role of thought police (see a previous episode for more) by removing evidence from interested citizens on its platforms Barry Farah shows how frightening dots are being connected between George Orwell's book written in 1949 and actual efforts by US Senators today.
