A study titled ‘Truth Decay and National Security’ details the Rand Corporation’s blueprint to end free speech.
The RAND Corporation, which advises the U.S. permanent war faction on policy, published a new study on April 12th, 2023. Titled Truth Decay and National Security it suggests ways to combat “…the diminishing role of facts and analysis in American public life.”
This sounds like welcome news in a world where the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health is a fat man in a wig.
Of course, RAND are not recommending a return to sanity and to sincerity on the part of government. The report is part complaint, part strategy – about the problem of maintaining a monopoly on the truth. As usual, it is a measure which we are told will improve our lives – by eliminating any option other than conformity and compliance with the ruling ideology.
Who’s afraid of truth decay?
Whilst the revelations of the Twitter Files and the Pentagon Papers are not mentioned in this report, it is certain they will be present in the minds of those reading it. The information war has been successful, but produces diminishing returns following the high-water mark of lockdown.

Questions over the corruption of the Zelensky regime, the realization that the Russians are not losing, and even the fact that U.S. intelligence agents are embedded in the digital and mainstream media are all examples of narrative breakdown.

Why do the progressives and the deep state authoritarians cooperate so well? Their power relies equally on the promotion of fantasy as reality. Truth decays these lies, leaving them toothless.
