Propaganda & Technology


"Merely automatic and historically hallowed ways of handling social adjustments have been rendered obsolete by shifts in technology and by strange new conditions of human contact. The programs of contending leaders, duly sanctified by theocratic or aristocratic connections are confuted by one another". (Lasswell, Page 17)

With the new technology now a days there isn't much communications from both parties involved. Now countries at war, that have conflict with each other react much quicker. With all new media informations gets across faster then ever. All parties are worried about what new weapons they have , such atomic bombs, the treat of nuclear weaponry.

You have chosen a complicated quotation. Lasswell is using some big words. I am not sure that this quotation can stand alone without its context. Sometimes pulling a quote out of context renders it confusing.

You write: "With the new technology now a days there isn't much communications from both parties involved" I thought that new media are creating more opportunities for communication and interaction.

What does all of this have to do with atomic weapons?
