Pages·· 1/25/ File:tingrakecoupde.ml - Wikispooks File:tingrakecoupde.ml From Wikispooks y A book by Edward Bernays dated Subjects: Propaganda, Public. There are two important bibliographies in the general field Propaganda . Edward L. Bernays. Crystall izing Pu blic Opinion. N. Y: Boni and. Liveright,. Inc., .

This gives Bernays his springboard to continue his own propaganda efforts on behalf of propaganda itself.

There are so many illuminating quotes in this book as well as typos about the early functions of Public Relations, but I find the most interesting insights come with Bernays' observations on the functions of the media and Hollywood: There is no means of human communication which may not also be a means of deliberate propaganda, because propaganda is simply the establishing of reciprocal understanding between an individual and a group.

The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the world today.

It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions. The motion picture can standardise the ideas and habits of a nation. Because pictures are made to meet market demands, they reflect, emphasise and even exaggerate broad popular tendencies, rather than stimulate new ideas and opinions.

One of these inventions was the seemingly authoritative 'sponsoring committee', the example used is the promotion of bacon. The old way to get people to eat more bacon would have been to place a lot of adverts with affirmative slogans like 'because it is good', a technique that seems to confrontational to be effective.

Bernays used a more 'scientific' approach: He knows as a mathematical certainty, that large numbers of persons will follow the advice of their doctors, because he understands the psychological relation of dependence of men upon their physicians.

Bernays was then employed by the United Fruit Company, at whose behest the Eisenhower administration used the CIA to overthrow the democratically elected government of Jacobo Arbenz. I'd like to close with a final quote from the introduction: We must convince the Latin Americans that our way of life is superior to that of the Communists.

It is difficult to make a convincing case for manipulation of the press, when the victims proved so eager for the experience. But the American voters soon found that without organization and direction their individual votes, cast, perhaps, for dozens or hundreds of candidates, would produce nothing but confusion.

Invisible government, in the shape of rudimentary political parties, arose almost overnight. Ever since then we have agreed, for the sake of simplicity and practicality, that party machines should narrow down the field of choice to two candidates, or at most three or four.

In practice, if all men had to study for themselves the abstruse economic, political, and ethical data involved in every question, they would find it impossible to come to a conclusion about anything. We have voluntarily agreed to let an invisible government sift the data and high-spot the outstanding issues so that our field of choice shall be narrowed to practical proportions.

From our leaders and the media they use to reach the public, we accept the evidence and the demarcation of issues bearing upon public questions; from some ethical teacher, be it a minister, a favorite essayist, or merely prevailing opinion, we accept a standardized code of social conduct to which we conform most of the time.

In theory, everybody downloads the best and cheapest commodities offered him on the market. In practice, if every one went around pricing, and chemically testing before downloading, the dozens of soaps or fabrics or brands of bread which are for sale, economic life would become hopelessly jammed.

To avoid such confusion, society consents to have its choice narrowed to ideas and objects brought to its attention through propaganda of all kinds. There is consequently a vast and continuous effort going on to capture our minds in the interest of some policy or commodity or idea.The instruments by which public opinion is organized and focused may be misused.

It might be better to have, instead of propaganda and special pleading, committees of wise men who would choose our rulers, dictate our conduct, private and public, and decide upon the best types of clothes for us to wear and the best kinds of food for us to 11 eat.
