propaganda


Propaganda is the deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognitions, and direct behavior to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist. - Garth S. Jowett and Victoria O'Donnell, Propaganda And Persuasion, 2006.

do you ever realize that you are being manipulated? what do you do when you do? do you ever choose to ignore and enjoy the excitement and pleasure of being a part of the progress and righteousness and the greater purpose? or do you stand out and ask to stop manipulating? or do you simply ignore and live in your small apartment? i think i live in the propaganda of my little comfy apartment in which everything is honest and simple and fine.

ps. i'm not making a commentary on any specific government or country. hm, or am i? now i'm confused. :->

I have just been alerted to this post. As the co-author of this definition, I AM THRILLED! with the graphic rendition. Is there any way that I can get a full sized reprint of this?

Many Thanks,
Garth Jowett.
