    Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. John Adams, ‘Argument in Defense of the Soldiers in the Boston Massacre Trials,’ December 1770

      It’s peoples’ minds that are stubborn. This is a temporary setback. Soon the Ministry of Plenty will be able to report an abundance, an excess of energy.
      War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.

    Wow! Reality suddenly slaps German policy makers in the face despite their best efforts to hide. Go figure!
