In another Narrative, we have the British Meteorological Office getting caught up in the conflict between its Narrative of Global Warmening vs. actual weather. They were caught out the last couple months due to the severe cold in the UK. Naturally, there was no admission of fault — instead history was updated to conform (as well as possible) to the new facts, and then faked the reason for that. I suppose once you just give up on facts, you might as well take full advantage, by also simply editing the data to get the proper result.
Yet certainly one should not, from all of this, draw the conclusion that a government ministry should ever be mistrusted! Clearly this is no reason to suspect anything might go wrong by turning over ever larger portions of the economy and our personal lives to this sort of organization. Why the very thought is far to “anti-gumint” to be reasonable.
