Ellul on Total Propaganda



Ellul stated "propaganda must be told. the progandist must utilize all the technical means at his disposal-the press, radio,tv,movies posters, meetings door to door cancassing. modern progpaganda must utilize all of this media."

I felt that he feels in order to really use propaganda you have to use it in every way you can. In order to get your ideas and what you want people to think across, this is the only way you really can I think this is true, because if something is everywhere you go, and everything you here is telling you the same thing your going to soon enough believe it.

Yes, this is a key point. Propaganda requires repetition to be effective. All media must be mobilized to shape public opinion.
