In addition since these were schools the younger

In addition, since these were schools, the younger members of the population, children and adolescents for the most part, were the primary targets of such a mixture of education and religion. It is an oft quoted maxim that if you give someone in authority your children he or she will have greater success converting them to his own values. It is simply a case over time where the young will come to adhere to your own values. Economy Finally, one must overhaul the economy of a people in order to ensure that they come round to accepting your way of thinking and being. In the case of the native people in the 17th century, there were two basic economies: nomadic (hunters) and settled (growers of corn). The Jesuits chose to encourage the latter, endeavouring to change the habits of the nomads. In so doing, those who were nomadic people found themselves living in fixed settlements near the French. This allowed for much greater facilitation of the use of education and health among the people by the French. Centuries Later Almost four centuries later, these same four principles can be seen in the war in Afghanistan. Western forces fighting the Taliban are endeavouring to become fluent in their language, building hospitals and schools with a particular focus on the education of women, and attempting to eradicate the local economy which is based on the poppy trade. I suspect that Father LeJeune, were he alive today, would have no trouble recognizing the implementation of what he wrote over four centuries ago, half a world away. Slide 10: Propaganda in Pre-revolutionary France
We have just seen a few pages back two of our guests discuss total propaganda. The previous two slides refer to a strategy for total propaganda in 17th century North America. I want to introduce you now to Professor Emeritus (Department of History, Queen's University, Kingston Ontario) James Leith . Dr. Leith is a world-acclaimed scholar in the areas of architecture, space, art and propaganda. His particular fields are The French Revolution of the late 18th century and 2nd century China. On this slide Dr. Leith is discussing the total nature of propaganda in pre-revolutionary France. Slide 11: Nazi Germany's Propaganda Machine Total orchestration in Nazi Germany These images (post cards) show hitler in a wide range of different situation i.e looking at a car, talking to diplomats, speaking to an elderly, caressing children etc. these are images that dont computer they dont fit the notion of what we know of hitler. These cards were very important to the cohesion of the german people, they collected these cards they collected and saved them. These images show “this is me” and this is the society i belong to, i relate to these. These images make people believe that this is what they wanted in the first place, and now they are a part of it ** Hitler post cards in cigarette packages before ww2.
