Why yes...yes we are all brainwashed. You nailed it. I suggest you move to North Korea immediately so you can experience utopia and complete freedom of thought from Western propaganda. I'm willing to bet that a few here in P&N would be more than willing to contribute to your one-way plane ticket to socialist heaven.

You should watch the video before you judge, the video it self isn't propaganda it only exposes propaganda.

The film assumes that propaganda and marketing are the same thing. The difference is that with propaganda, the opposing view isn't allowed. Just as people chant simplistic lines around Obama, the same thing happens around all his opponents. The difference with propaganda (especially in places like North Korea) is that the opposing view isn't permitted. Citizens aren't allowed to question the idea that Kim Il Sung is the savior of all North Koreans.

PLEASE take a look at this before taking anything anyone from the North Korean Government says seriously:

Gossip magazines, shopping, unhealthy foods, and "buy things they can't afford to buy", they got us there.

I think Western propaganda is just as bad but that it's a bit less obvious.

Professional liars whose job is it to keep people in front of their televisions, reading gossip magazine, eating vast amounts of toxic food . . . and shopping, always shopping. D:

Has this man just broken a world record? Has he just created a medecine that can save thousands of lives? Perhaps he has been chosen to represent his community in some way?

No. This man has just purchased a telephone. :awe:

And these people . . . what is making them scream and cry with such profound joy? They are on a television show where they are receiving consumer items.

This hysteria is not because they have found God. This is because they are receiving . . . sneakers. :awe: :awe:

The propagandist knows that an individual has a natural desire to be on the winning side and to fit in with the crowd.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to make them chant favorable yet deliberately vague slogans like:

"This changes everything." "Just do it." "I'm lovin' it." "Support our troops."

You want to create a slogan that everyone's for, and no one is against.

Propagandists provide simple answers to complex questions, and ask for approval without question. :cool:

They can use this method to sell phones, violence, cosmetics, or even false wars.

Is this film over-the-top propaganda? Absolutely!

But there's more truth in it that many here would ever be willing to admit.

tl;dw? Click the handy-dandy excerpted links above. ^^^ Just do it. It changes everything. You'll be lovin' it. Support this post! :p

North Korea is probably the most hermetically sealed, total propaganda state ever. The disconnect between what they tell their populace and the truth is more vast, and their monopoly on any such info more complete, than just about anywhere.

I guess it takes one to know one.

There's a whole other side to the story this propaganda film attempts to portray. Of course there is. But this film also contains space station sized kernels of truth, which we all ignore at our peril.

Thanks OP for posting this.

It's not as if we really needed this video. Every day on the forum, you see otherwise bright people intimidated into not having their own true opinions with liberal and conservative alike psychologically coerced and indoctrinated into a hypocritical 110-yr old progressive ideology without remotely being able to identify it as such.

Why are we able to view this video? Shouldn't our government be blocking it? Oh wait, that's right, we're not North Korea, for example...

Our entire civilization depends on convincing people to by things we don't need so at the core of the overwhelming number of transactions is "propaganda". I've long known this and is a good part of the reason for my unwillingness to accept that which has not been well considered, however NK pointing this out is a bit humerous.

While it's possible that Satan could make a video truthfully condemning sin in others, there still would be an irony in him doing so.

HAHAHAHAHA




I did appreciate how the video equates Hitler and Reagan because they both combed their hair. Is Dear Leader balding or something? :sneaky:

I thought that OP link was going to be a very crude propaganda with the usual tired cliches and slogans. But the from what I saw (never saw the entire video) there were parts, like you said hit uncomfortably close to home. From ordinary viewers being 'anesthetized' with cheap junky programming while the real important issues are being shunted aside to the problems of concentration of media ownership.
