Propaganda - "Beware of Peace"


Why is propaganda so much more successful when it stirs up hatred than when it tries to stir up friendly feeling?Bertrand Russell


All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.  Adolf Hitle

 
This is the secret of propaganda: To totally saturate the person, whom the propaganda wants to lay hold of, with the ideas of the propaganda, without him even noticing that he is being saturated. Paul Watzlawick 


Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state. Noam Chomsky 


Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.  Adolf Hitler
  


The goal of modern propaganda is no longer to transform opinion but to arouse an active and mythical belief. Jacques Ellul


The oblique paradox of propaganda is that the lie in the throat becomes, by repetition, the truth in the heart.  John Grierson 

Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves.
Eric Hoffer 
 All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.  George Orwell



The United States has it's own propaganda, but it's very effective because people don't realize that it's propaganda. And it's subtle, but it's actually a much stronger propaganda machine than the Nazis had but it's funded in a different way.
Crispin Glover 

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Douglas MacArthur


 One cannot wage war under present conditions without the support of public opinion, which is tremendously molded by the press and other forms of propaganda. Douglas MacArthur
