Default The power of propaganda!

Some current examples of such implanted conventional wisdom, as listed by Stauber and Rampton, may be discerned in the field of health care...
Thanks Steve... Great couple of articles!

I think everyone should learn about propaganda, its techniques, and how it works...

In fact, it is closely related to many other topics we talk about here, such as influence, NLP, persuasion, copywriting...

Many of the examples in the articles you mention use "social proof"... That is, "proof" that everyone else has a particular point of view, so you should too! Others use "authority" (such as the mention of using the American Medical Association to promote the idea that smoking is healthy for you).

I did read more about the techniques of propaganda in the past... I think it's about time to refresh my memory.

People think they are not influenced by propaganda... In fact, you are being blanketed with propaganda messages every day. Especially from politicians... But not only from them.

Thanks Steve - great post!

Best wishes,
