PROPAGANDA AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE

Harassment Through Psychological Warfare from Media Filter.Org's War at Home archives. While boring from within, the FBI and police also attack dissident movements from the outside. They openly mount propaganda campaigns through public addresses, news releases, books, pamphlets, magazine articles, radio, and television. They also use covert deception and manipulation.

Mediafilter.org    A network of volunteers working to uncover and illuminate the surreptitious tactical ends to which media are employed. The tactic of media is invisible. Invisible in plain sight... The tactic of media is to make the invisible visible.."

Microwave Harassment and Mind-Control Experimentation by, Julianne McKinney Director, Electronic Surveillance Project Association of National Security Alumni

Ms. Guidance Cyberwar, Information Warfare and Psychological Operations

Politprop Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) "POLITPROP examines the art of propaganda as a potent force in forming social consciousness and recognizes propaganda as a powerful, valid means of artistic expression designed to broadly communicate messages of public importance. POLITPROP provides vital information for the research, detection and development of propaganda."

Propaganda Analysis Home Page As generally understood, propaganda is opinion expressed for the purpose of influencing actions of individuals or groups... Propaganda thus differs fundamentally from scientific analysis. The propagandist tries to "put something across," good or bad. The scientist does not try to put anything across; he devotes his life to the discovery of new facts and principles. The propagandist seldom wants careful scrutiny and criticism; his object is to bring about a specific action. The scientist, on the other hand, is always prepared for and wants the most careful scrutiny and criticism of his facts and ideas. Science flourishes on criticism. Dangerous propaganda crumbles before it. Alfred McClung Lee & Elizabeth Briant Lee, The Fine Art of Propaganda, 1939.

Our aim is to investigate and to publicize the tactics, objectives, and plans of these agencies by sharing our knowledge with journalists, editors, publishers, and academics the world over. Information, in this context, becomes a form of self-defense, as the continued domination of the "old powers" becomes more and more dependent upon misinformation and propaganda."

Social Influence: Propaganda and Persuasion -- Some useful background information.
