Propaganda and Handling
You have combined the word “Propaganda” and “handling” with corporations, religions, politics and lies, and you would certainly not receive it as a praise if someone called you “Propaganda”. But you are probably a propagandist, as you are also a “victim” of propaganda, on many issues that go beyond politics and touch from your religious to social views, even the views you have adopted and “worn out of the way” in your company. Most likely, the majority of your views are the result of propaganda. The definition of propaganda is really simple and neutral and has nothing to do with “darkness” and “ugliness” that you probably imagine.
Propaganda is any form of communication designed to influence the attitude of a community or person towards an issue.
So simple. !!! But why did you combine it with politics and lie? Because its use is PHONOMENIC the crown of politics (you have to influence bullies, at least to vote for you) and because “lie”, “inaccuracy” and “cheap impressing” are within the tools of propaganda. You see, you know the tools of propaganda only when you have watched them and you have been accused in the camp with “dissidents” and never with those you think are yours. It’s hard to think of how you propagate continuously and uninterruptedly, regardless of matter or level.
Propaganda is the main way of advertising
In fact, advertising can also be defined as propaganda for a particular product. The word propaganda concerns mainly political or nationalistic purposes and the promotion of corresponding ideas. Propaganda is also related to government information campaigns aimed at promoting or discouraging specific practices (see use of safety belts, smoking, etc.). Even in these cases, the character of propaganda remains political. Propaganda can take place through leaflets, posters, television and radio broadcasts or other media.
Within narrower contexts, propaganda means a set of information that is deliberately suggestive or false to support political considerations or to protect the interests of those in power.
The propagandist seeks to mutate the way in which the general public perceives a matter or a certain situation so that his reactions and aspirations serve the interests of the entity that the propagandist represents.
As such, propaganda is consistent with censorship, which achieves the same goal as the fact that it does not seek to fill the mind of the public with “approved” information but prevents the transmission of conflicting ideologies. What distinguishes propaganda from other forms of advocacy is that the propagandist is willing to change the view of the public through confusion and deception rather than through persuasion and understanding. In addition, leaders of an organization may be aware that information is unilateral or untrue, but this may not be the case for members of the organization involved in disseminating propaganda.
As far as religious shades are concerned, the term “propaganda” is widely used in disputes regarding new religious movements by both defenders and their persecutors. The latter call them sect-heresies. Anti-Catholic / anti-free movement activists accuse the leaders of the alleged sects of using propaganda to convince followers. Some sociologists, such as Jeffrey Huden and CESNUR scientists, blame the anti-heretic movement, as well as the former members of the so-called sects, who became critical critics, that their accusations are lacking.
Propaganda also exists “unknowingly” when you try to persuade your friends about your point of view [you call it “discussion”] because you use many of its tools. Historically, volumes for propaganda could be written and spoken: From references to “demagogy” and “demagogues” in the ancient world to even astonishing craftsmen of the genre.
The slogans “Do not Live in Drugs” and “For a Better Greece”, the stereotypical expressions of the presenter who are listening to the M-Massive-E-type “Pyrrina poplapa” or “Special Crime” and even popular folk wisdom propaganda role.
How effective is propaganda?
So effective to use heavily in war, religion and politics, areas they want, fast results. So effective so that her success does not depend on the logical correctness of the opinion you are trying to get, sometimes as crazy as the better: others believe in crucified ones who have risen, others that their dead grandmother has been transformed into a cow, others that capital he will save us, others will save us the Molotov, others that the Real Greeks will save them and El, others that everything is blame for X (a group that you do not like) and others that the Great Kthoulou wakes up and gathers the faithful ones.
Just see what opinions are on the planet earth and take your conclusion.
See how you see the people who advocate the opposite idea of ??what you are fond of and see how they see you and you and on both sides it is obvious that the opponent’s side is wrong.
The man is capable of believing EVER if his positions are intelligent and at the same time unable to be sure of anything. A lot of faith and no knowledge, certainty or doubt.
Through art, the artist has photographed and described those situations that appear to be one member in an interaction, using manipulation techniques to bring about a change of attitude towards the other member.
Surely we have all seen a Greek film where the protagonist’s mother seems to be faint or catches her breasts as being at risk of a heart attack, expressing her intensity for some disappointment. Usually the disappointment came from her “heartless” son who does not listen to her or her “heartless” child who did not do her pride. As soon as the son changed his stance, suddenly the mother’s state of health came back without leaving any permanent damage and a smile stretching to her lips.
Ask yourself: How true, through the exaggeration of art, does this situation reflect? Are there people in your life who lead your own final decisions and possible behavioral changes? In the end, are not you as free as you thought?
The effectiveness of propaganda lies in the fact that it is addressed very strongly in emotion.
So do not imagine that a propagandist needs to have steel arguments and to raise his hand to a teaching post as he unfolds a narrative that you can not “grab” from anywhere because it is perfect in terms of logic-philosophy. If propaganda requires propaganda, it is a good knowledge of psychology alone.

The Pythagorean philosophy encourages the student to shed light on the sanctuary, to bring all that has accumulated there on the surface and to cope with them in order to bring harmony. It is very easy to say “detract from propaganda” if we are calm when we are bombarding news, we are looking for our own interests and, most importantly, we do not distract ourselves from the actual problems, our real needs as a human species and the primordial values ??of our lives. It is up to us to be able to live freely as independently as we can, away from the “Matrix” created by propagandists.
How Facebook Manages!
The truth is, however, that you are not only being manipulated by those around you. In 2012, a group of researchers from Cornell University and the University of California, made a survey they recently published. They featured News Feed, that is, the flow of news, pictures and situations of a large portion of Facebook users, in such a way that a percentage of the users see negative-negative publications and another percentage of viewers view positive posts.
The result has shown that users are affected by the publications of their facebook friends and their availability is proportional to the publications. If positives are positive and optimistic, our mood is good. If they are negative or pessimistic, then they are more negative.
Facebook, to some extent, can affect your mood at will. So far, everything seems reasonable. The shocking thing is this: The survey was conducted with the participation of people who did not know that they were taking part in a survey.
Facebook can change your mood, and therefore behavior, without even knowing it!
How can you understand that you are under the manipulation of someone?
Usually, the manipulators create developments in the decisions you make. They lead your actions, creating emotional counterparts in your reasonable thinking. Although there are many forms, the most common are:
A) They create guilt. Like the mother who fails and feels bad about her condition and our responsibility towards her, so the creation of guilt increases our need to satisfy others, not to serve them alone, but to feel our satisfaction exemption from the guilt of his refusal to respond to their wishes.
B) Create obligations that you have to repay. Many times you will have heard, not always sophisticated or conscious, by people in your environment to ask you something served with the phrase “I have done so much for you!” It is the introduction to your brain in the process of obligement of any actual or unnecessary obligation. Scientists also notice situations where the manipulator imbues trickly memories into the manipulator so that later it enhances its ease of retrieval.
C) Target the value system. “You who are such a good friend will you help me with this?” When you hear this, he replied, “I am not good at all, the opposite,” and see reactions. Our need, in the eyes of others, to show good and good, depending on the relationship we have with them, is a powerful weapon in the hands of the manipulators. By striking our need to look and respond properly to our values, it leads to a change of behavior of the manipulator.
D) They create a climate of threat or fear. When you hear rumors in your office about layoffs, what are you thinking? Will I be one of them? Do I work harder or more efficiently to avoid it? May I not ask for that raise from the boss now and wait a little longer? The need to not lose something that is important or technically has passed the view that it is important, makes the manipulator change behavior.
It is easy to stop manipulation as long as the logical counterweight to the emotional power prevails!
How can you get rid of the manipulation?
With LO C IK
1) Recognized the manipulation and the source. Ask yourself if since you met a man you have changed some of your standing habits that serve his interests. If you feel downsized or feel uncomfortable about how good you are for him. Find examples that you would not proceed to an act if there was no negative contribution.
2) Set your limits. Set red lines for some challenging positions in your process and do not bend. For example, when you read these lines, feel that you are being manipulated by someone to change your decision or behavior, try to stick to your own side and do not bend for any reason.
3) NO: Explain your limits both in practice and verbally. Try to deal with the handrail, expressing the limits and doing according to your own will. He watched the alternations in the ways of manipulation he would use to achieve his demand and exploit the logic rather than the emotion. Ask yourself, “am I really a bad friend when I do not do that good while I’m next to him?” The logical answer is that you are not really that bad anymore just because you started saying NO.
4) Disconnect: Remove or isolate the handrail. Remove from the source, isolate it or try to get away from the sirens of the manipulation efforts.
Manipulation can be ostensibly done for your own sake or have positive results in the end. The purpose of escaping and moving away is to have the freedom that your [free] will needs.
Manipulation may not be done at a conscious level by the manipulator. Possibly subconscious to do as he does, but that does not mean anything to you, move away.
Isolation of the manipulator does not necessarily require contacts to be interrupted, but recognition of the efforts and cognitive manipulation of them so that you do not become a real receiver. Generally speaking, you do not pay attention to and keep it in good-times, good times, ie not many – not even substantial communication.
You can endure people as well as manage a lot like a person, but how much do you have to do for others to feel beautiful? How beautiful can you feel when you are NOT INDEPENDENT to decide yourself for your own choices, even as false?
The fucking ass
He was a peasant who asked someone 100 pounds with a mortgage for his donkey. Indeed, his good guy gave them up after a couple of days – Monday I think he was, he went to pick up the donkey. But the donkey on Sunday broke down and on Saturday the villager “consumed” the money at the bars having fun. “Well,” someone says to the villager. “Tell me something, the donkey’s wagon what did you do?” He asks. “Yes, the stables are still there,” he replies. “Nice, I’ll send it to you in the afternoon and … you do not owe me anything. We’re fine, “someone says. “Maa! How; So you lose your money. And what donkey do you want him to be dumb? I do not understand, “says the peasant. “I’ll tell you a while from now,” someone says.
They spend a month and meet in the cafeteria of the village. “What happened to the donkey? And with the money I owe you? “The peasant asks. One of them answers “With your money I said. You do not owe me anything. On the other hand, with your ass donkey, I won € 898 “. The peasant looked at him for a few seconds. Suddenly he meets and asks. “But how do you do that?” “Yes,” he explains. “I went to the other village and distributed 500 £ 2 draws, with the lucky winner winning your donkey.” “My ass? But he is a dumb! ” “Yes, but they did not know it !!!” “And with the one who won the vampire you broke?” “Slowly! I gave him 2 € back, and he was pleased that he was not lost like the rest 499. ”
Economic lesson: Worthy donkeys exist in different species, such as bubbles, movable bubbles, stock market bubbles, financial – see airbags – products, famous CDS, MLM, FRANCHISE, etc, etc … etc. At most, too much money comes out only in a way, not bother because swirling air and nothing else. And do not forget! The most successful and profitable kind of donkey ass is the people themselves!
Today, Propaganda and manipulation are being held permanently. Everywhere and always. In every direction. We all are permanent targets of Propaganda. She is now a constituent element of modern life, a stable institution. Propaganda is a permanent phenomenon of all the societies of our century.
“Conscious and intelligent handling of organized habits and views on the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who handle this unnoticed mechanism of society are an invisible government that is the real power that governs the whole country ”
But we can do something on a personal level. WE ARE LIABLE AND RESPONSIBLE
