  1. Bad example at the one minute mark: A “good example of propaganda” is a “campaign to improve pubic health through vaccination.” Oops.

    How about making a decision based on reasoning and open source information? That’s the ideal of a market of ideas where unfettered access creates a constant annealing, feedback-correcting process to find the most accurate and reliable “answer”.

    • Yes, complete BS. If it is such a great idea, it can stand up to scrutiny based on real history, real facts, etc. It needs propaganda to prop it up because it lacks a solid foundation.

      Hi, just for the record the vaccination example is one that Bernays gives in the book, rather than one I created myself. I tried to review the book with a neutral tone throughout.
