You have to realize that it's not the propaganda that's changing your mind, it's your gulability that's making it happen.
true, propaganda is simply misleading, and without gulibility, it wouldn't work, but everyone has some level of gulibility

So basically this whole thing comes down to the fact that propaganda and Brain washing can only be accomplished if people are guilble (sorry about spelling) towards what is being said. But since there will always be gulibility to some degree than there will always be some kind of propaganda or brain washing to take advantage of it!

How about commercials in general? The average child sees 10,000 commercials promotiong fast food, candy, and sugary cereal.

If a parent is eating every meal with a child every day of the year, they only have 1,095 (1,098 on a leapyear) influences to televisions 10,000. It's not a fair fight.

Pfft. Brainwashing is fake. It's just another thing made up by the alien-hippy cult to make us change our ways and live their lifestyle so they can use us to help them take over the world. Don't believe it! The alien-hippy cult will win! We can't let that happen! Don't let them trick you! Don't go into the light! I Can't Believe It's Not Butter is actually butter! The hippies made it! They're out to get you and make you fat!

The whole New Orleans deal was a crock on both sides. The conservatives all said their trademark line, "Let's all get behind the president, he needs our support!" The liberals all said, "Well, Bush is being racist in his relief efforts!"

I said, "Fuck you all!" I don't really know a hell of a lot about the media coverage of New Orleans (not having cable TV or a NYT subscription blows), but what I did see was weird and biased on both sides. I don't believe that Bush was on the ball for New Orleans, and FEMA certainly didn't do its job very well, but you can't say that The Man was trying to squeeze the black man here. The race card got played too much in all, and turned the whole thing into a giant, free-for-all political farce.

They're both pretty common these days. Especially in the United States. It's pathetic how people will go to such measures to get votes or get people to dislike someone they don't like. It happens all the time to poor Bush. I mean, I'm not a huge Bush fan, but people need to cut the crap and give the guy a break. I wish people would just let everyone have their own opinions and tell the truth about things.

I agree. Hes going the best he can and believe it or not...hes not doing that bad of a job.

People are too lazy to gather information so they just jump on the bandwagon with everyone who says they hate Bush.

That's so true. I know people will probably say I'm crazy for this, but I think Bush is doing a pretty good job too. People say other Presidents were better, but Bush has had all kinds of shit dumped on him that most of them didn't have. He's doing the best he can, like you said, and people need to quit blaming him for every little problem in the world.

brainwashing isn't all too common, but it can take a toll...

and propaganda is all too common, especially in the good ol' U.S.A.
examples-Michael Moore, Boston Massacre, Thomas Jefferson's campaign

well, talk about things now that you think are propaganda or brainwashing


DAMN I TOTALLY AGREE! I thought was going to be a bullshit thread but it's not.

I really hate how America's youth allow themselves to be brainwashed and become so saturated in the media that the have no opinions of their own.
It sickens me.

All this talk of brainwashing the youth and everything is true. But there are MANY youths who don't go for it at all. So it's a mixture. Not all American kids are like that,the ones in my school aren't.

I agree with the 'I Hate Bush bandwagon'. xD Honestly,I would've voted for him. Why? Because my family did and a bunch of other Kurdish people were,and they're home country is part of Iraq. So I got on that bandwagon,and then switched for an 'i hate him' for awhile. Now though,I actually research on them. >_>

that's still not propaganda, it's advertisement retard Rolling Eyes


That Is Propaganda Retard

propaganda

n : information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause

That is spread for the cause of getting George Bush elected, giving people the infomation that he does this that and the other, portraying him to be a good person.

Another example was in wartime. British newspapers promoted the idea that the Britsh were winning for example and made them out to be heroes. Dunkirk for example was a great loss for British troops, but propaganda raised morale in Britain by saying they were great for escaping.

An example of where propaganda may be seen as "Bad" use is where Hitler sent out movies depicting how Germans were the master race.

Propaganda is every piece of media you have ever read, hell even word of mouth in Proaganda. Its everywhere, be intelligent and make up your own ind after reviewing what you hear.
