Is Communism A Control Mechanism??

According to Herman and Chomsky there is a particular model for propaganda one which involves "filters". These "filters" basically allow the governement and private interests to get their messages across to the public.

"Communism as the ultimate evil has always been the specter haunting property owners,as it threatens the very root of their class postion and superior status."

In order to understand Herman and Chomsky you have to first understand what it means to be a communist. Communism would create a classless society of abundance and freedom, in which all people enjoy equal social and economic status.(source)

This was interesting to me how the governement could create a method to make individuals fearful of being labled a communist. This was used as a way to discipline the public.
