-The propagandist will say that their causes, values, ideologies and vice versa are the absolute truth -Hitler’s Nazi Regime promoted Jewish people (in addition to Gypsies and homosexuals) as deficient of society. Hitler practiced disinformation, which is the voluntary act of bringing “about a result desired by the disseminator which appears correct or in the best interest of one's enemy but which is founded on a lie or in manipulation.” (Lesson 6) -Through the use of the media, massive public demonstrations and his overall capabilities as a public speaker, Hitler convinced the state of Germany that anyone regarded as an undesirable deserved to die. His beliefs were sanctioned by the government and to many people at the time, there was no greater truth than that of your government because it is assumed to be true.

Does this make it false? It's true in a sense that these qualities were true when following the directives but not true when applying them to this politician. However, someone else perhaps the candidate’s mother could attest to the truthfulness of these qualities in her son What is true about the message is what the reader ascends to. The truth lies in what the reader believes is true Int the realm of truth we have two simultaneous processes going on 1. The veracity of the statement – found in the intent of the message

2. The credibility the audience gives to the message - veracity s found in the effect of the message Propaganda starts with the intent to achieve a goal has as its ultimate manifestation the effect it has on people. It is in the lived effects that we see how propaganda works there may be ethical uses of propaganda despite its reputation and practice of being ‘prone to deceptions,’ as Marlin notes. He also acknowledges that there can be ‘well‐intentioned propaganda.’” -propaganda as a phenomenon -TOTAL: entirely organize,d uses all media/means, surrounds you with what you belive/being asked to do -TIME: can be timely (has to be current/immediate), also timeless, built on routes of tradition/societies
