How would you know whether something is propaganda or not.,
Well it depends on the certain way it is written.
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.
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.
Ah I see.
All propaganda is, is a statement usually on poster or 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.
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.

And it even brought his wife to support him in the act
