Pinheads To Create Official Ministry Of Truth: Climate “Disinformation” To Be Banned

Regular readers are sick of reading, yet must endure it once more, that officially defining “misinformation” and “disinformation” necessitates the creation of a Ministry of Truth. Some agency must define official “truths” and must police deviations from them, otherwise there can be no formal things as “misinformation” and “disinformation”.

If one possessed genuine universal timeless unchanging and unchangeable necessary capital-T capital-D Dogmatic Truths, then such a Ministry could only do good.

If such a Ministry existed when DTs do not, it serves a purpose besides guarding truth. This purpose could be anything, from encouraging insanity to bending political will toward goals in which rulers, even if they themselves are uncertain about the circumstances behind the goals or the necessity of the solutions, nevertheless still desire strongly. Often, as we have seen over and again, this purpose is propaganda propagation toward suspicious goals, meant to enrich or empower regime supporters.

Such a Ministry, as we have also often discussed, need not be formally constituted, and can be, as ours is, spread across the bureaucracy. The longer it exists, however, the more formal it becomes. Let’s see how that works.

There are no DTs for coronadoom. This is because there are no contingent DTs, and all contingent propositions are subject to uncertainty, however great or small. This means all propositions used in science are not DTs (except for a handful of metaphysical foundational propositions). Scientific propositions, therefore, can have no guardians, no honest Ministry of Truth. (A MOT is different than coincidental semi-uniform instruction seen in schools; though with accreditation, such instruction can devolve into a MOT.)

We all recall too well what happened with coronadoom. The mutings, cancellations, firings, restrictions, mandates, criminalizations and on and on, all led by a combination of over-zealous governance and a nascent formal Ministry of Truth.

These moves were welcomed by many because they were worked into a state of fearful frenzy. Panic excused many ills in the effeminate desire for safety, safety, safety.

Once these mechanisms of control are in place, they are not abandoned easily. Bureaucracies are like business: they do not dissolve, they seek new purposes.

Now atmosphere physics is, of course, a science. It thus has no DTs. Neither does global cooling, also called global warming, also called climate change, also called climate crisis, also called climate annihilation, and also to be called climate-whatever hyperbolic asininities are left to be used or discovered.

We have seen forty-plus years of failures of this science. One prediction of doom followed by another, routine hersterical apocalyptic rhetoric, a master course in overstatement and over-certainty.

Therefore, if we see a Ministry of Truth employed in the service of climate cancer (see how easy it is?), we must suspect it has interests other than perpetuating truth.

Enter the female-oriented, and therefore safety focused, site Pinterest. They have announced they will form an official branch of the Ministry of Truth for climate herpes. They will, they say, “block all climate misinformation, as the image-focused social network seeks to limit the spread of false and misleading claims.”

This entails MT police. It’s not a bad guess to say that this Thought Patrol will be called Pinheads. Pinheads are not scientists. They work at a site that published fashion photos and celebrity tittle tattle. Pinheads, therefore, will be an assortment of blubbery blue-short-haired pierced tattooed soy-fed perpetually angry scolds, not one of whom could define vorticity—or any other common term used in atmospheric physics—to save her life.

Yet they will say things like this:

Pinterest is defining misinformation broadly: the company will take down content that denies the existence or effects of climate change or its human causes, as well as content that “misrepresents scientific data” in order to erode trust in climate science and harmful, false or misleading content about natural disasters and extreme weather events.

“Pinterest believes in cultivating a space that’s trusted and truthful for those using our platform,” said Sarah Bromma, the company’s head of policy. “This bold move is an expansion of our broader misinformation guidelines, which we first developed in 2017 to address public health misinformation, and have since updated to address new and emerging issues as they come to the forefront. The expanded climate misinformation policy is yet another step in Pinterest’s journey to combat misinformation and create a safe space online.”

All right. It must be, then, since these Pinheads are ignorant of the “truths” they will insist upon, that they will be supplied them by some outside agency. This agency, then, must be official.

It may be an “NGO”, which means Nominal Government Agency; i.e., a group with official ties to the bureaucracy but which pretends independence. It may be the government itself, or a group directly funded by government as a repository for official climate “truths,” such as a university.

I don’t know what this group, or perhaps groups, will be, but they must exist. And they must grow in power and size as the desire and need for censorship spreads. We have already had the beginnings of the MOT with coronadoom. Its success is what led to its expansion to climate wound.

Incidentally, before we leave off, here’s the obligatory it’s-not-happening-and-it’s-a-good-thing-it-is entry, which shows the extent of the censorship. The pinheads

also deliberately limited its own tools. Users who search on the site for many health-related terms, such as “vaccines” or “cancer cure”, are not given normal results, instead being directed to health advice posted on the platform from organisations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Vaccine Safety Net.

Big Tech for years denied juicing results. Now they boast of it. The transition from denial to pride happens after the lies can no longer be believed by a majority.

Climate suppurating sores (which sounds worse than climate herpes to me) has powerful government interests, mostly (as with coronadoom) desiring to sell “solutions”. The difference is that pandemics fade, but changes in the climate will always be with us, no matter what. It can be made into a permanent crisis, therefore it can be fashioned into a permanent conduit of money flowing from government to oligarchs.

For these, and many similar reasons, the inroads the Ministry of Truth made with the Pinheads will certainly expand across all of Big Tech. And soon.

  1. The enforcement of doctrines, regardless of which ones or by whom, is always an evil even when the facts are plain, unimpeachable, and available to all — because to be genuinely and maturely in possession of What is True, we must be able, individually, to find and defend it. When all sing from the same hymnal, there’s no need for inquiry or rational defense because all opposition has been silenced. So it doesn’t matter that we, being human and fallible, can never be utterly certain of What is True. Even if we were, our need to learn how to argue our way to it would remain, and that requires opponents who will argue against it!

  2. I saw the speech by the fatuous fascist Barack “If you like your Doctor you can keep him” Obama. The speech was spewed at Stanford, a place some have described as the Harvard of the West and a place others have described as Coastal Communist Central.

    Of course, this rebarbative racialist who hates whites and America, never expressed gratitude to this country that twice selected him POTUS and has made him a multimillionaire who owns two mansions and is in the process of building a third in Hawaii, but he did find the time to attack the First Amendment of the Constitution.

    The way he cocks his head when he reads from his teleprompters, and the self-righteous arrogance of his demands that others either agree with his inanities or shut up is the pluperfect performance of a progressive peck sniff. which is why the media have always been ga-ga over this empty suit goofball.

    I wish he’d just write another biography (it would be his third) that dealt with his own fascination with one half of his racial heritage and clam-up but, no, he is a leader in the movement to force t’all to shut up if you disagree with he and his commie satanic minions.

  3. Briggs writes: “It can be made into a permanent crisis, therefore it can be fashioned into a permanent conduit of money flowing from government to oligarchs.”

    I think it’s much more than money that they want, they want the entire planet. To
    be honest one can almost appreciate their sentiments humanity is so easily deceived
    and manipulated by mindless repetition it fuels an age old & murderous contempt in
    the noblesse oblige. Hundreds of millions will die by the willful destruction of the
    world economy all planned and on track with lockdowns and carefully cultivated
    wars. Such a quaint term the ‘new normal’ where reality takes on the trappings of
    insanity.

  4. I’m FINALLY getting around to reading Michael Crichton’s State of Fear …

    Well, as web developers have long been selling web search engine optimisation for their customers. To be on the first page of google means that you just pay someone to be there. I notice you’ve done a bit of key word stuffing, is it called? Then used the google analytic information. Remember the post hole digger episode? I could hardly forget. So when sales and marketing does it it’s okay and not a ministry of truth but when those trying to prevent the rubbish put out by propagandists and activists about deadly diseases? Well. It’s hardly surprising. It’s hardly ministry of truth, either. It just spoils the fun of the activists who are paid to cause havoc. Loose tongues cost lives.
    So no, it’s been long known that sales and marketing manipulate web searches to their own ends, for business purposes. You wouldn’t Call that a ministry of truth.
    If google were paying their way and didn’t have the power over nations then that would be. A fine thing. They can do what they like with their own search engines. Drive them where they like. Say one who’s suffered from evil underhand web “presence” interference, denial of service attacks, culminating in being followed and reports to the police, I can only say that google can do as they wish, it’s the activists and the stalkers you need to worry about.
    Google was at its best in the late naughtiers.
    When searches returned genuine information. Now one just has to work around it’s crappiness and find other ways to source good information.

  7. “Our” truth. “Our” trust. “Our” platform.
    It used to be “our” country, be we wouldn’t fight for it.

    The Left is always and only about power, pleasure and profit. They need it, you can’t have it.
