Transcript of Propaganda
A set of messages designed to shape the opinions or behavior of large numbers of people so that they will respond in the way the author wants.
The idea that because something is popular you should do it. "Everybody's Doing it!"
Using evocative words to make the audience have a specific response.
When a celebrity or other "trustworthy" person (like a doctor or lawyer) is used to convince you of a position.
Rather than focus on an argument the speaker starts calling the person or idea they are talking about rude names or labels so that the audience will become distracted.
Appealing to the common or everyday person. Trying to appear "folksy" or coming from a non-wealthy background. "See, I'm just like you!"
Appealing to people by convincing them that only some people own it, "exclusive" or expensive items.
