I recently signed up to ATS. I've followed the forums for quite sometime. I'm big on propaganda analysis. I think everything is propaganda. I look forward to interacting with you all.


Thanks!

Hello and a welcome to you.

Glad you are into propaganda because I think the public are waking up to the lies and manipulation that goes on through our tv's and press. I must emit to not having bought a paper for years now because of it.

I expect you will find a lot of other topics also that will fascinate you - enjoy.

Propagandists privilege is a legitimate issue and one worth further investigation, until affected individuals outside the ATS community begin to acknowledge the lies beyond their purview, propagandists will continue to act with impunity.

If not, the potential for the disastrous rise of the Propagandists Superiority Complex exists and will persist...

You might report for us some of the professional studies into that topic.

Like beauty, propaganda tends to be in the eye of the beholder.

However, it has been a seriously studied topic for quite some time.

And, I think ATS would be a great site to study it on.

You might start with a good definition of "propaganda."

I couldn't agree with you more. My perception of EVERYTHING changed once I began reading their books and papers.

thats good. Let us you and I work together to figure out what China is trying to peddle to the West. The Wanda group now owns AMC theaters and Hoyt Cinerma in Australia. They are now the largest cinema company on Earth, and have majority market share in South Pacific and North America cinemas. They also own Legendary Pictures now, which explains why all the big blockbusters are portraying China in this new leadership role in their movies.

Explore my Sig for more information, including this:

The amendment, which was hidden within the NDAA, has remained relatively unnoticed. However, it empowers the State Department and Pentagon to utilize all forms of media against the American public for the sake of coercing US citizens to believe whatever version of the truth the US government wants them to believe.


I love movie propaganda, it has become a hobby of mine to study and see what scenes are trying to push which agendas.

Thats pretty cool.

Youll find plenty of propaganda on ATS, being discussed as well as disseminated.

Is there any particular type of propaganda or subject matter that is of special interest to you?

I find Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud, to be an interesting guy.

He said that propaganda shouldnt just be used in wartime, that it can and should be used in peacetime as well.

He also coined the phrase "public relations", saying that they could no longer call it "propaganda" because that was the term used by the Nazis.

I've found many fascinating things already! I agree that the public is waking up to the nonsense in the media. I do keep up with the news as much as I can stand, but I do it from a perspective of, "What effects are the propagandists hoping to cause by dramatizing this event through the media?"

Good propaganda is few and far between, plenty people here try to push biased things. I don't even vote, but plenty of voters here try to influence us and frankly whatever is biasing them is blinding them. They've clearly got some skin in the game. President Trump or President Hillary doesn't matter to me, either is OK with me.

Good luck finding whatever you're looking for, propaganda is neat for seeing new viewpoints, has alot of uses too.

I love these comments. I was typing out my extended thoughts on propaganda and the mainstream media when I hit the wrong button and lost it all. These comments eased the pain of my on clumsiness.

I don't trust anything I see in the media on the surface. I try to only look at it through the perspective of what purpose the propagandists hopes it will serve...what domino effects of causes will occur, what seeds of thought will be planted, which groups and sub-groups will be antagonized, what future reality are people being conditioned to accept, stuff like that. This is especially true if the story is something that gets me excited because the entire purpose of propaganda is to create thoughtless acceptance and/or action by evoking powerful emotion.

Here are some great quotes that I've been thinking over lately that speak to the definition and purpose of propaganda. The last one is from that damn Edward Bernays, who I'm sure gets mentioned from time to time.

"When the public believes that the enemy began the war and blocks a permanent, profitable and godly peace, the propagandist has achieved his purpose. But to make assurance doubly sure, it is safe to fortify the mind of the nation with examples of the insolence and depravity of the enemy.......Thus, by a circularity of psychological reaction the guilty is the satanic and the satanic is the guilty." Harold Lasswell

“To be effective, propaganda must constantly short-circuit all thought and decision. It must operate on the individual at the level of the unconscious. He must not know that he is being shaped by outside forces." Jacques Ellul

"Modern propaganda is a consistent, enduring effort to create or shape events to influence the relations of the public to an enterprise, idea or group.This practice of creating circumstances and of creating pictures in the minds of millions of persons is very common. Virtually no important undertaking is now carried on without it, whether that enterprise be building a cathedral, endowing a university, marketing a moving picture, floating a large bond issue, or electing a president. Sometimes the effect on the public is created by a professional propagandist, sometimes by an amateur deputed for the job. The important thing is that it is universal and continuous; and in its sum total it is regimenting the public mind every bit as much as much as an army regiments the bodies of its soldiers." Bernays

I do actually try to stay updated on the latest research associated with the topic....as time allows anyway. I find pretty stuff from these sources; RAND corp, E.R.I.C., Stanford, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign (they have a good bit of declassified studies)

Ok, now I know how the quote button works!....something I didn't notice in my first few replies.

I'm really interested in the effect it has on people psychologically, and I've gotten pretty into the history of it lately because I wanted to learn about the similarities in tactics throughout time.

I am aware of ole Eddie Bernays. I agree. He is a uniquely interesting character. I make videos about him sometimes where I do a very average impersonation of him saying elitist things.

I've read most of his books, some of them a couple of times. It took me like a month to find a nearby library that could have another library send them a copy of Engineering of Consent. None of them even had it, and at the time the only copies on line were like 800 bucks.

He applied wartime propaganda to peace time alright....His techniques have definitely helped sell me a handful of items laying around the house that have never been used. News media and companies that can afford it conduct a 24/7 psyc war on the population with his engineering of consent approach. I gotta admit though, he was a very intelligent dude.

The movie propaganda is a very big issue.

They have been manipulating the populace and planet toward their globalist tyrannical goals from AT LEAST

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

days. And the oligarchy's involvement has been far more than as mere consultants on the set.
