The Uses of Comic Books: Conservatism and Propaganda in Modern Mexico
Transcript of The Uses of Comic Books: Conservatism and Propaganda in Modern Mexico
Conservatism and Propaganda in Modern Mexico “You must begin a reading program immediately so that you may understand the crises of our age,” Ignatius said solemnly… “You may skip the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. That is most dangerous propaganda. Now that I think of it, you had better skip the Romantics and the Victorians, too. For the contemporary period, you should study some selected comic books”

A propaganda organization employs propagandists who engage in propagandism—the applied creation and distribution of such forms of persuasion."
