Propaganda has been around for many centuries although the term itself wasnt coined until pope gregory xv established the congregation of propaganda in 1622 the pope created this group for the express purpose of trying to win back catholics whod taken up the protestant faith during the reformation. How propaganda works shows that an understanding of propaganda and its mechanisms is essential for the preservation and protection of liberal democracies everywhere jason stanley is the jacob urowsky professor of philosophy at yale university he is the author of knowledge and practical interests language in context and know how. Propaganda works by tapping into emotions through images slogans and a selective use of information or control and censorship of the facts this is especially true if propaganda is being utilized by a government that is controlling the media by censorship or one that owns and runs media outlets as was the case in the former soviet union. Propaganda which has been around for many centuries is a term commonly used to describe deceptive persuasive techniques to change peoples beliefs and attitudes. To me the best way to fight propaganda is to become savvier about how it manipulates how it actually works as stanley does in his work its not just because we dont want to become a victim of propaganda we also dont want to inadvertently contribute to its dark purpose
