how would you know whether something is propaganda or not.,
Well it depends on the certain way it is written.
Ah I see.
All propaganda is, is a statement usually on poster of television that makes you believe something that is not true and is mostly used to try and make someone believe that someone else is bad.
So if I handed you a pamphlet that told you that a certain group of people do a bunch of bad nasty things to get you to dislike them although they didn't really do , that would be propaganda?
Yes that's exactly right.
Actually, back in world war two Adolf Hitler passed out propaganda that made the Jewish people look like monsters so that he could get Germans to help him exterminate them.
Well if it's propaganda through posters you could go around tearing down the posters but if its television you could go out in a densely populated place and speak your mind, try to convince them to listen.
How would one try to fight propaganda.
Yeah, you can lead a horse to water but you can make it drink
Anyone can fight for what they believe in, even if it means you have to fight a huge corrupt government, but not everyone can get the masses to listen
