After reading this article that was linked on here a few days ago, there was something that occurred to me. The same tactics that are used for advertising here (in the US, probably most of the imperial core but I don’t know enough to say for sure) are used for propaganda. Meanwhile, the people here are probably particularly susceptible to these sorts of tactics, what with being taught basically our entire lives not to think critically or ask questions. Which I think might be contributing to the success of the US’s propaganda in the US, vs, for example, China’s propaganda in the US. I don’t know, maybe this is obvious to everyone else, I’m tired. And I know I didn’t articulate this very well. I’m going to bed.
