Download and read online How Propaganda Works in PDF and EPUB Our democracy today is fraught with political campaigns, lobbyists, liberal media, and Fox News commentators, all using language to influence the way we think and reason about public issues. Even so, many of us believe that propaganda and manipulation aren't problems for us—not in the way they were for the totalitarian societies of the mid-twentieth century. In How Propaganda Works, Jason Stanley demonstrates that more attention needs to be paid. He examines how propaganda operates subtly, how it undermines democracy—particularly the ideals of democratic deliberation and equality—and how it has damaged democracies of the past. Focusing on the shortcomings of liberal democratic states, Stanley provides a historically grounded introduction to democratic political theory as a window into the misuse of democratic vocabulary for propaganda's selfish purposes. He lays out historical examples, such as the restructuring of the US public school system at the turn of the twentieth century, to explore how the language of democracy is sometimes used to mask an undemocratic reality. Drawing from a range of sources, including feminist theory, critical race theory, epistemology, formal semantics, educational theory, and social and cognitive psychology, he explains how the manipulative and hypocritical declaration of flawed beliefs and ideologies arises from and perpetuates inequalities in society, such as the racial injustices that commonly occur in the United States. How Propaganda Works shows that an understanding of propaganda and its mechanisms is essential for the preservation and protection of liberal democracies everywhere.

Download and read online Fake News in PDF and EPUB Fake News: How Propaganda Influenced the 2016 Election, A Historical Comparison to 1930's Germany is a brief comparison of propaganda tactics from Hitler's Third Reich to the right wing news machine that drove information in the 2016 election. Kelly Carey's expert comparison includes broken political parties, power vacuums and decades of false news, leading to unlikely and dangerous leaders in Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump. The reader will be introduced to the history and methods of Nazi propaganda and the mind of Josef Goebbels, the propaganda minister. Carey explains the similar tactics used by Steven Bannon and right wing media corporations for two decades and how they have mimicked Hitler's fake news machine. The uniformity is shocking and telling. The direct quotes by both leaders and their emotional inadequacies are alarming at best and guide the reader through the tangle of facts and fiction, as directed and disseminated by each leader. Carey explores why propaganda works to fool people into believing harmful agendas. The lies of the right have catapulted America to the brink of history in the same manner propaganda allowed the Third Reich to rise and change the world forever.

Download and read online Propaganda and the Jesuit Baroque in PDF and EPUB In this provocative revisionist work, Evonne Levy brings fresh theoretical perspectives to the study of the "propagandistic" art and architecture of the Jesuit order as exemplified by its late Baroque Roman church interiors. The first extensive analysis of the aims, mechanisms, and effects of Jesuit art and architecture, this original and sophisticated study also evaluates how the term "propaganda" functions in art history, distinguishes it from rhetoric, and proposes a precise use of the term for the visual arts for the first time. Levy begins by looking at Nazi architecture as a gateway to the emotional and ethical issues raised by the term "propaganda." Jesuit art once stirred similar passions, as she shows in a discussion of the controversial nineteenth-century rubric the "Jesuit Style." She then considers three central aspects of Jesuit art as essential components of propaganda: authorship, message, and diffusion. Levy tests her theoretical formulations against a broad range of documents and works of art, including the Chapel of St. Ignatius and other major works in Rome by Andrea Pozzo as well as chapels in Central Europe and Poland. Innovative in bringing a broad range of social and critical theory to bear on Baroque art and architecture in Europe and beyond, Levy’s work highlights the subject-forming capacity of early modern Catholic art and architecture while establishing "propaganda" as a productive term for art history.

A technique he famously dubbed the "engineering of consent." But it was during World War I, that he became an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information, a shadowy but powerful propaganda apparatus which was mobilized to prepare, advertise and sell the great war to the American people. So they did it with the message "Make the World Safe for Democracy." This operation would become the defacto standard in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon.

Download and read online The Manipulated Mind in PDF and EPUB Ever since American prisoners of war in Korea suddenly switched sides to the Communist cause, the concept of brainwashing has continued to fascinate and confuse. Is it really possible to force any thinking person to act in a way completely alien to his character? What makes so-called brainwashing so different from the equally insidious effects of indoctrination and conditioning, or even advertising and education? Research findings from psychology show that brainwashing is not a special subversive technique; it is the clever manipulation of unrealized influences that operate in all our lives. This book, by breaking down so-called brainwashing to its individual elements, shows how social conditioning, need for approval, emotional dependency and much else that we are unaware of, prevent us from being as self-directed as we think; and, conversely, which human traits make us the least susceptible to subtle influence.

Download and read online Democratic Political Theory in PDF and EPUB Professor Pennock launches an encyclopedic study that evaluates and ultimately synthesizes a variety of democratic theories. After defining democracy and examining the basic tensions both within and between liberty and equality, and individualism and collectivism, the author sets forth two typologies of operational democratic theories, one related to power, the other related to motivation. In succeeding chapters, he analyzes a series of problems with which any operating democracy must contend, and then measures—on the basis of empirical work done in this area—the adequacy of the various theories in dealing with these problems. Originally published in 1979.
