Propaganda Analysis Blog Practice

"Without the appeal to our emotion-to our fears and to our courage, to our
selfishness, to our loves and to our hates-propagandists would influence few
opinions and few actions."

( 10 Ways to Detect Propaganda)

I believe that this whole course will truly describe how "we the people" make propaganda one of the most destructable influences we have here in America. It not only plays with our emotions, but most of the time is hurting some type of ethnicity group, class, gender, sexual orientation, and government. Maybe if everyone studies the ways that propaganda tricks us, we will sway away from it and look for more truth.

You make a good point. The manipulation of emotions is central to mass persuasion. And, yes, if people became educated about the techniques of mass persuasion they would be less effective.
