19. The problem with propaganda is . . .
Sun May 1, 2022, 07:43 PM
May 2022

you can see it so clearly in another country, but if you live within a maelstrom of propaganda, on a daily basis, in your own country, it becomes a lot harder.

The most effective propaganda is information that manipulates you into thinking a certain way, without you being aware of it.

That uneasy, queasy feeling you have most of your waking hours?
Never mind it too much, it's just your brain trying to digest and make sense of all the manipulative BS you are fed every waking minute.
