Surprisingly still perfectly relevant. Substitute radio for Internet and you're there. ( )

NON È SOLO PROPAGANDA
Nipote di Freud, Edward Louis Bernays (1891-1996) è una figura poco nota al pubblico italiano, eppure viene unanimemente considerato, insieme a Ivy Lee, colui che ha fondato negli Stati Uniti la scienza delle Pubbliche Relazioni. Nasce a Vienna, la sua famiglia vanta stretti legami di sangue con Sigmund Freud, la madre, Anna, ne è la sorella. “Propaganda”, pubblicato a New York dall’editore Horace Liveright nel 1928, alla vigilia della Grande Crisi, è considerato il libro più importante di Bernays perché nelle sue pagine si trova espressa la filosofia cui si è ispirato in tutta la sua lunga attività. Nel 1945 il Dipartimento delle Relazioni del Consiglio federale delle chiese di Cristo in America crea il premio The Edward L. Bernays per la leadership nella promozione dei rapporti interrazziali, un omaggio al suo lungo impegno antisegregazionista, iniziato nel lontano 1920. ( )

This is the clear link between propaganda (of the WWI and WWII varieties) and marketing/public relations. They are the same thing, but for propaganda's sake, they thought calling it PR would sound less shady.

The book is more of a historical document, and less of a manual. It's actually the author's pitch to get more corporations to hire him.

After reading about this book's sizeable reputation, I expected a brutally leftist cultural revolution instruction manual along the lines of Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals. I feel it's actually a rather ho-hum pamphlet (yes, it's short) about subtle marketing techniques. But perhaps THAT is the greatest and most subversive achievement of this book: To put forth rather creepy tactics in an apparently bland way. And imagine my surprise to see a leftist introduction, by someone named Mark Crispin Miller, trashing Bernays as a right-wing ideologue (in other words, the kind of person who is mislabeled as a "fascist" by most modern-day liberals)! See the United Fruit Company's partnership with the CIA to overthrow Guatemala's government. To observe true leftist propaganda, check out many of the original programs, particularly Orange Is The New Black, aired on the company called Netflix, which was co-founded by one of Bernays' savvy descendants.

An amazingly prescient and relevant book for the world in 2016. Conscious effort to manipulate habits and opinions of the masses. We are governed by men we have never heard of. Our invisible governors are even unaware of one another. They manipulate news and inflate personalities by use of ballyhoo by all of which is brought to the consciousness of the herd.There is a need for an invisible government because of the complexity of our civilization. When millions are subject to the same stimuli they all receive identical imprints.

Large scale messages - propaganda - are used to desseminate information and ideas to the masses. A group of citizens talks in favor of a certain course of action thinking they are doing what is best - is not propaganda, but if someone asserts the opposite viewpoint he is engaged in propaganda. Even well informed people are surprised by the extent to which progaganda shapes the progress of affairs. Progaganda is an enduring effort to create or shape events to influence the relations of the public to an enterprise, or idea, or to certain people. Only through the active energy of the intelligent few can the public at large can become aware of and act upon new ideas

The names of presidential candidates are decided upon by only a few men sitting around a table in a hotel room. There are invisible rulers who control the destiny of millions. We do not realize the extent to which the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons sitting behind the scenes. Enter the public relations man.

The systematic study of mass psychology revealed the potential to the invisible government of the motives which actuate man in the group. Groups have mental characteristics distinct from those of the individual and are motivated by impulses and emotions which differ from those of the individual Mass psychology. The group mind. Public psychology. The group mind does not think. In place of thoughts it has impulses, habits, and emotions.To make up its mind the herd often turns to a "trusted leader". Men are largely actuated by motives they keep hidden from themselves and so do the masses.

The invisible government dictates our thoughts, directs are feelings, and controls our actions. No one believes that the people have any divine or wise and lofty ideas. The mind of the group is made up by a group of leaders who understand the manipulation of public opinion. The secret leaders know that personality rules A charming candidate is the alchemist's secret that can transmute a prosaic platform into the gold of votes. Today's politician needs to know not how to please the public but how to sway the public.The public actions of our President are stage managed by the hidden power.

Women have legal equality but their interests remain separate and different from men as do their pursuits and vocational interests.The public is not cognizant of the real value of education and does not realize that education as a social force is not receiving the kind of attention it has a right to expect in a democracy. Education does not attract the active interest of the herd.

The media by which the special pleaders transmit their messages to the public through progaganda include all means by which people today [1927] transmit their ideas to one another. There is no means of human communication which may not also be a means of deliberate propaganda because propaganda ismerely establishing reciprocal understanding between an individual and a group.

THEY KEEP YOU DOPED WITH RELIGION, SPORTS, SEX, AND TV - - AND YOU THINK YOU'RE SO CLEVER AND CLASSLESS AND FREE - BUT YOU ARE STILL FUCKING PEASANTS AS FAR AS I CAN SEE. (JL). ( )

Introduction: Prior to World War One, the word propaganda was little-used in English, except by certain social activists, and close observers of the Vatican; and, back then, propaganda tended not to be the damning term we throw around today.
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.
