Schools of “Thought”: Nationalistic Propaganda in History Textbooks

Schools of “Thought”: Nationalistic Propaganda in History Textbooks

Helen Keller was a radical Socialist; Woodrow Wilson advocated white supremacy; within three years, the plagues brought by Europeans to America left only one native in twenty alive in coastal New England. A student would be hard-pressed to find facts like these, which paint America and its heroes in a less-than-positive light, in a typical history textbook. Indeed, these textbooks have by and large functioned as handbooks to produce patriotic, socially responsible young American citizens. By following this goal, these…

ANNE APPLEBAUM | SAVING DEMOCRACY FROM DISINFORMATION | 2017

ANNE APPLEBAUM | SAVING DEMOCRACY FROM DISINFORMATION | 2017

Suddenly, everybody was an author. Everybody could publish. Everybody could write. The men who had controlled access to information were now irrelevant, and the establishment was crushed in a flood tide of new publications. New ideas multiplied and so did conflicts. Violence followed and led to 100 years of war. No, I am not talking about the invention of blogging or social media. I am talking about the invention of the printing press and the radical 15th-century technology that destabilized…

Meet Walter Lippmann And Why Journalism Became Propaganda.

Meet Walter Lippmann And Why Journalism Became Propaganda.

Walter Lippmann was an American writer, reporter, and political commentator famous for being among the first to introduce the concept of Cold War, coining the term “stereotype” in the modern psychological meaning, and critiquing media and democracy in his newspaper column and several books, most notably his 1922 book Public Opinion. Public Opinion is perhaps Lippmann’s most well-known work. Lippmann begins this book by describing a situation in 1914, where a number of Germans, Frenchmen, and Englishmen were trapped on…

Playing the Victim | Historical Revisionism and Japan

Playing the Victim | Historical Revisionism and Japan

If I asked you to name as many movies and video games as you can where Nazis are the bad guys, you could probably come up with at least a dozen before you even had to take a breath. But if I were to ask you to do the same for Japan, you’d probably struggle. Aside from the greatest movie ever made and maybe one of the Call of Duties, they really aren’t portrayed as evil in our popular media….

1947 anti-fascist film goes viral in wake of racist protest in Virginia

Here in America is not a question of whether we tolerate minorities. America is minorities. And that means you and me. I happen to know the facts. Now friends, I’m just an average American, but I’m an American American, and some of the things I see in this country of ours make my blood boil. I see Negroes holding jobs that belong to me and you. Now I ask you, if we allow this thing to go on what’s going…

The Dark(er) Side of Media: Crash Course Media Literacy #10

Say you have an evil twin. They’re just like you but…different – somehow evil-er. Maybe they have a fancy twirling mustache and are just constantly listening to emo music. Maybe they hate chocolate and fun and bubbles and the greatest film of all time, Titanic. What if your evil twin not only looked and sounded just like you, but pretended to be you. They stole your family and your friends and your significant other and your favorite pair of shoes….

What is a Wumao?

Sponge bob intro The CCP – or Chinese communist party – has been building a modern great wall, not a physical wall – like trumps wall – but a fire wall to keep its citizens away from the evils of skype, YouTube, twitter, google and driver software from foreign electronics companies! Why is china building such a wall – well it seems to be to breed nationalism and to keep control of the average person because – as proud supporter…

Assya Kavrakova: Without Citizens' perspectives, We Won't Understand Populism

populism has been largely studied in the past years but at the role of citizens apparently is not really considered that much by academia so in your opinion why is that so what happens that I should be changed in this regard I think this is partly true because this has been very very much the case at the beginning now there is a shift I see more and more studies which are also considering and trying to understand what…
