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.

Communication 101 Can it Work ?

Everyone says its soooo hard.   The other person has weird ideas.  Or just doesn't SOUND enough like US for me to understand him.. Or they REMIND me of.......  

  But I have discovered that, given the chance to speak and be heard, many of them become VERY reasonable.  I and a group of friends have been doing it for years.  Not the same group.. People join for a while, go away and we never hear from them again. Others pop back up every few years.  Or ten years later.  

   We had it on a roll for 6 years at a Penara Bread on Sunday from 9:30 to 11.
