Political Propoganda

Propaganda is a specific type of message presentation, aimed at serving an agenda. Messages that may not be true do to seeing the completed picture. It’s like giving the viewer secreted messages and manipulates them from believing that it’s true. It not only inhibits our sense of reality, it frequently causes us to act against our own interests. It does this by affecting the parts brain that are unaffected by logic or consciousness but respond to images and symbols.

One example is this image above. It’s said everybody’s happy to fight our war. Well from what you’re seeing it seem that the soldiers in this pic look tired and injured. Their faces are covered with happy faces symbolizing happiness. Seeing this smiles make the viewer to believe that these soldiers are happy. Look like this image is hiding from the realization of being true.

Another Image is this one. Its the super hero Flash out running a speeding train. Also it says "Justice strikes faster than a speeding train !" Well you can see that this ad is targeting for younger audience. Kids will always believe this. Flash symbolizes justice and thats mean that its always ahead of everything.
