“Trust Me, I’m Lying”

Respectfully, many of the comments here are missing the point. That point is, information – much like it’s great grand parent, the financial markets – is subject to manipulation by anyone with the power and motivation to do so. Or as it was said in Dune, “He who controls the Spice controls the universe.”
It seems to me there is a direct correlation between the increase in Orwell’s genius and Moore’s Law (as a barometer for technology’s intrusion into the human condition).
