Propaganda Techniques

Propaganda Techniques

Organized techniques of propaganda (a.k.a. weaponized deception) have been successfully applied in politics and war since at least World War One - and probably since the dawn of war.  Although few people understand propaganda today, books on propaganda and were best sellers in the 1920's.  Propaganda is so powerful it was used to trick the educated and egalitarian people of Germany into a disastrous Second World War some 20 years later after their disastrous participation in the First World War.

The Freethinkers of Colorado Springs is a 100% volunteer Colorado nonprofit charitable organization and a US IRS 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 1993 in response to Colorado's infamous "Amendment 2," which amended the Colorado Constitution to prohibit "any statute, regulation, ordinance or policy" through which gays, lesbians, or bisexuals could "have or claim any minority status, quota preferences, protected status or claim of discrimination." Amendment 2 (also known as "Initiative 2") was adopted after a voter referendum, and remains a part of the Colorado Constitution to this day as Section 30b. However, Amendment 2 never became law in Colorado because an emergency injunction prevented it from being enacted initially, and Section 30b of the Colorado Constitution was declared unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court. The 1996 Romer vs. Evans Supreme Court Decision ruled (6-3) that Amendment 2 violated the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution because it explicit[ly] "prohibits all legislative, executive or judicial action at any level of state or local government designed to protect the named class."
