Propaganda Warfare Propaganda Warfare
Untitled Document

We normally think of intellectuals as being analytical and sophisticated, yet in his book Propaganda, Jacques Ellul argued that intellectuals can often become more vulnerable to propaganda than the common man. They are often addicted to receiving information second-hand through media, rather than interpreting it first hand with common sense. They can also have an emotional need to support a viewpoint even though they are usually schooled in the identification of informal logical fallacies that comprise the basis of propaganda.

In the current age of sound bytes, where most Americans tend to get most of their news from network television and other highly processed national media, they can also become more vulnerable to propaganda than early 19th century Americans, who tended to live on farms and to gather most of their opinions from direct experience and highly decentralized media. Hopefully the diversity of views offered today by an uncensored Internet will make Americans increasingly healthier in this regard. (Photo: In 1972, U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, representative of the New World Order, toasted Chou En Lai, right hand man of Chairman Mao Tse Tung, as the U.S. made an Orwellian flip-flop in its policy towards Red China vis a vis Taiwan, as discussed in the Preface to Ways That Are Dark).
