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 Propaganda in PDF and EPUB ""Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country." - Edward Bernays, Propaganda A seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays, was a pioneer in the scientific technique of manipulating public opinion. 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 Social Security Works in PDF and EPUB A growing chorus of prominent voices in Congress and elsewhere are calling for the expansion of our Social Security system—people who know that Social Security will not “go broke” and does not add a penny to the national debt. Social Security Works! will amplify these voices and offer a powerful antidote to the three-decade-long, billionaire-funded campaign to make us believe that this vital institution is destined to collapse. It isn’t. From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z, we all have a stake in understanding the real story about Social Security. Critical to addressing the looming retirement crisis that will affect two- thirds of today’s workers, Social Security is a powerful program that can help stop the collapse of the middle class, lessen the pressure squeezing families from all directions, and help end the upward redistribution of wealth that has resulted in perilous levels of inequality. All Americans deserve to have dignified retirement years as well as an umbrella to protect them and their families in the event of disability or premature death. Sure to be a game-changer, Social Security Works! cogently presents the issues and sets forth both an agenda and a political strategy that will benefit us all. At stake are our values and the kind of country we want for ourselves and for those that follow.

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 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 Propaganda Power and Persuasion in PDF and EPUB As Philip Taylor has written, ‘The challenge (of the modern information age) is to ensure that no single propaganda source gains monopoly over the information and images that shape our thoughts. If this happens, the war propagandists will be back in business again.’ Propaganda came of age in the Twentieth Century. The development of mass- and multi-media offered a fertile ground for propaganda while global conflict provided the impetus needed for its growth. Propaganda has however become a portmanteau word, which can be interpreted in a number of different ways. What are the characteristic features of propaganda, and how can it be defined? The distinguished contributors to this book trace the development of techniques of ‘opinion management’ from the First World War to the current conflict in Afghanistan. They reveal how state leaders and spin-doctors operating at the behest of the state, sought to shape popular attitudes - at home and overseas - endeavouring to harness new media with the objective of winning hearts and minds. The book provides compelling evidence of how the study and practice of propaganda today is shaped by its history.
