Media Control

Repesentation as Reality was one of the main topic in Media Control by Noam Chomsky. The main concept here was to overcome sickly inhibitions and to rearrange thoughts. Chomsky gave a very good example of the Vietnam War, he believed too many poeople were getting the wrong impression for the war. So that where you would rearrange the bad thoughts, to tell people that the reason was to defend Vietnamese. Chomsky concludes that: "The truth of the matter is burred under efifice after edifice of lies upon lies."

I am not sure what you mean by "sickly inhibitions" here. Try to find a more specific point about how all of this works according to Chomsky. Is propaganda noting more than "lie upon lie"?
