Propaganda and Democracy
Democracy has a very important role to play in most of the political dispensations across the world. However, the meaning is often vaguely understood by many. As a matter of fact, there are several things that are not clear when people talk about democracy. Sometimes, for whatever reasons, certain persons have in the past in various places used persuasive means in an attempt to gain loyalty from those being persuaded.
This is precisely what propaganda is all about. The motive is often very ulterior, because rather than encourage people to use discursive reason, it seeks to direct people’s thoughts. This is implemented aiming at benefiting the mastermind. Person’s spreading propaganda will often use various modes of making their word heard.
