Organizations Uses of Propaganda- LASSWELL

Depending on the interest of an organization propaganda is used in different ways. Some organizations whose goals are to express social changes through what they believe is good moral conduct; they will use propaganda to uphold the sanctity of their beliefs.

Reformist propaganda work for limited changes in the social order. As the term is used in America, reformist propaganda are those which set out to modify conditions in the name of moral standard, as, for example, efforts to prohibit the drinking of alcohol or recreation on "the Lord's Day". (Lasswell, 16)

One such example that Lasswell mentions is the relationship in Germany and France concerning the Antigovernmenta monarchist who were confronted with the progovernmental activities.

A good post except for the last paragraph. Why bring up the example of the "Anti-governmental monarchists . . ." if you are not going to discuss the point?

Can you post pictures now?
