The U.S. Department of Defense defines psychological warfare (PSYWAR) as: “The planned use of propaganda and other psychological actions having the primary purpose of influencing the opinions, emotions, attitudes, and behavior of hostile foreign groups in such a way as to support the achievement of national objectives.”

During World War II the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff defined psychological warfare more broadly stating “Psychological warfare employs any weapon to influence the mind of the enemy. The weapons are psychological only in the effect they produce and not because of the weapons themselves.

This film explores the evolution of propaganda and public relations in the United States, with an emphasis on the elitist theory of democracy‚ and the relationship between war, propaganda and class.

Includes original interviews with a number of dissident scholars including Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Peter Phillips, John Stauber, Christopher Simpson and others.

  24. I really think we need to take a long, hard look at HDTV. It was rammed nationwide into every household with absolutely no choice or alternatives presented.

    Given the general lack of corporate ethics and the recent aggressive implementation of corporate agendas, progressive Americans need to think about whether subliminals are being used. They did it in the fifties and they’d gladly do it again if they thought they could get away with it. That needs to be looked at. The potential for embedding subliminals in HDTV is very, very high.

    Our household does not watch TV. Period.
