How Propaganda Works

How Propaganda Works book cover Political brainwashing – The prevailing belief among Americans about political brainwashing is that it doesn't happen here; that happens in totalitarian societies. Yet Our democracy today is fraught with political campaigns, lobbyists, liberal media, and blow torch right-wing commentators, all using language to influence the way we think and reason about public issues. How Propaganda Works provides a window into the misuse of democratic vocabulary for propaganda's selfish purposes. Jason Stanley explains how the manipulative and hypocritical declaration of flawed beliefs and ideologies arises from and perpetuates inequalities in society.
