Educational film to teach viewers about the dynamics of propaganda, made in the in the late 1940's or early 1950's.

A teacher dissects the processes in which propaganda works to an eager student. In it are moments of classic hokum, but curiously it all rings true today.

Beware of Propaganda.

Anti Communist Propaganda

An animated anti-communist film produced by the US in 1948, this is funny stuff and the quality of the animation considering it was produced by a college is absolutely awesome.

Enjoy

Horst Wessel and Hitler, 1933

The Horst-Wessel-Lied ("Horst Wessel Song"), also known as Die Fahne hoch ("The flag on high", from its opening line), was the anthem of the National Socialist German Workers Party from 1930 to 1945. From 1933 to 1945 it was also part of Germany's national anthem.

The lyrics of the song were composed in 1929 by Horst Wessel, a Nazi activist and local commander of the Nazi militia, the SA, in the Berlin district of Friedrichshain. Wessel was assassinated by a Communist activist in January 1930, and the propaganda apparatus of the Berlin Gauleiter, Dr Joseph Goebbels, made him the leading martyr of the Nazi Movement. The song became the official Song of Consecration (Weihelied) for the Nazi Party, and was extensively used at party functions as well as being sung by the SA during street parades.
When the Nazis came to power in 1933 The Horst-Wessel-Lied was recognised as a national symbol by a law issued on May 19, 1933. Nazi Germany thus had a double anthem, consisting of the first verse of the Deutschlandlied followed by the Horst Wessel-Lied. A regulation attached to a printed version of the Horst Wessel-Lied in 1934 required the right arm to be raised in a "Hitler salute" when the first and fourth verses were sung.

With the fall of the Nazi regime in 1945, the Horst-Wessel-Lied was banned, and both the lyrics and the tune remain illegal in Germany to this day.

Adolf Hitler became the Chancellor of Germany in January 1933. His rise to power was facilitated by President Paul von Hindenburg, the German army and many politicians. Combining the posts of president and Chancellor, he acquired supreme authority of Germany by making the Nazi party as his powerbase to rise to power.
He first established a Nazi dictatorship by means of the Enabling Act. In March 1933, to obtain two-thirds of the majority needed to enact the Enabling Act, the Nazi party used the Reichstag fire to argue that a Communist revolution was imminent and thus depower the communists. Furthermore, the Nazi policies were much more appealing relatively to that of the failed Weimar Republic's and thus, large numbers turned to Hitler as they were longing for a period of stability within Germany after an unsuccessful rule by the Weimar Republic.
The Nazis came to power through an alliance with some traditional conservative factions, although they experienced opposition from the opposing parties. Franz von Papen, a conservative former German Chancellor and former member of the Catholic Centre Party, supported Hitler for the position of Chancellor. Political and corporate engineering, which began immediately prior to 30 January presidentially appointed Hitler Chancellorship, which continued till 23 March Enabling Act that eventually gave Hitler dictatorial power. This Act passed with the support of the Huguenbergian German National People's Party (DNVP), a few liberals, and all conservative and centrist deputies in the constitutionally-disabled and effectively rigged Reichstag. This remaining bloc easily defeated the sole opposition of the Social Democrats, because a large proportion of the Communists had been either arrested or murdered.
Among the conservative forces who opposed Hitler, the most notable was Kurt von Schleicher, the chief Army political general and fixer who held the Chancellorship after Papen's, the failed aristocratic attempt at administration. Von Schleicher in late 1932 attempted to construct a "cross front" that would unite anti-Hitler factions on the right and center-left in the Reichstag. His failure to do so allowed Papen's second rise to power inside a Hitler coalition, and it was Papen who paved the way for Hitler's appointment as Chancellor.
Papen squared the Industrial Magnates and business class, squared the Bankers, squared the weapon-hungry Officer class and, through his personal influence with President Paul von Hindenburg, squared the landed Junkers. Papen intrigued between Hindenburg's son Oskar and the still despised Adolf Hitler. He then squared the Church through his aristocratic Catholic credentials and Vatican contacts made during his own Chancellorship. Papen persuaded Hindenburg to appoint Hitler into the 30 January 1933 minority and appointed cabinet with the aim of ensuring that he, Papen and the vested German political forces, would control Hitler. He is famous for saying that Now we have him where we can control him. Hindenburg accepted this DNVP/Nazi majority and rejected or did not understand the last minute von Schleicher threat of an Army putsch to resolve the crisis. Such a threat would, in fact, have saved the country from Nazism, but it was anathema to the terminating presidential ambition.

U.S. Government War Propaganda Mill

From Pres. Wilson (WWI) thru G.W. Bush (Iraqi Freedom), all war-time presidents use propaganda and the media to fool "we the people" into war. Here's how they do it.

Propaganda:
1 capitalized : a congregation of the Roman curia having jurisdiction over missionary territories and related institutions
2 : the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person
3 : ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause; also : a public action having such an effect




It's quite easy to achieve, and may in fact be done on a subconscious level....take just the subject and verb from one sentence each of the last 3 posts by MrGray:

Fox scripting
O'reilly insulting
he lied

What opinion do you have of Fox News based on those 3 simple phrases?

We already know ...

When have you started to use the majestic plural? IMHO only because Jeffrey, like some others including me, has another political opinion (less right-wing) than you he doesn't have to be less competent. Well, at least not necessarily.

I'm convinced that any system only based on honesty, righteousness and trust (if there were one) were a lot better than this home-made paranoia preached by some politicians all over the world who are paid by war mongers: weapon or war system producing companies which make their Billions from letting people kill other people.

Peace all over the world would be a disaster for very many companies: Daimler Chrysler, General Motors, Boeing, McDonnell-Douglas, many others which are known for producing weapons and other stuff only used for fighting (or only own such companies)... Suddenly they had to concentrate only on civil products! What an amount of turn-over would vanish!
The day Peace all over the world were announced would be even worse than the famous Black Friday! Since this has to be avoided, propaganda machine must run, fear and hate must be spread out, and nation must fight against nation -- that the blood money can flow into some "few" companies' bank accounts.
