Propaganda and it's future

"Propaganda is surely here to stay; the modern world is peculiarly dependent
upon it for the coordination of atomized componenets in times of crisis and for
the conduct of large scale 'normal' operations."
I believe that this quote is true, you need some type of propaganda to keep things in track. It seems like someone is always out there to influence someone else. If the issues are true and can be proven this is the correct way to use propaganda. Even though it seems that propaganda is only used while trying to influnce a person, there are many ways that were not used as propaganda in the past, but new ways have arrived since the inventions like the internet and more technological advances. Now in the present day propaganda can come at you in many ways and we might not even know it. Propaganda is here and it is strong and stays strong as long as someone wants to change for the better or for worse.

A good post, an interesting image. Always cite the sources of your info and images. Use links.

You and Lasswell agree that propaganda is a part of modern life. I am not sure if we can agree on a "correct way to use propaganda" Mass persuasion is a part of "social management" according to Lasswell. The question is are mass persuasion and democracy compatible?
