Do you believe that truth should triumph over propaganda that is spread as truth?
How do you recognize propaganda? Do you discover it as the presenter introduces it to the audience? Do you recognize it as a ploy by the speaker presenting what the audience members desire to hear? Corrupt politicians, media manipulators, truth-benders, pretenders, and lie-baiters seem to be happy with their propaganda scandals as they continue to spread their lies. This is an attempt to repeat it often enough so the masses will regard it as the truth. What should be done to curtail such illicit activity?
Well, first, if your question reads "do you believe that truth should triumph over propaganda", I doubt that anyone will come saying "No".
But second, let's make it clear that propaganda isn't synonymous with lies. It's important to clarify that someone who uses propaganda isn't necessarily lying. They're just presenting one side of the argument.
As to how to recognize it, I would say not to take anything at face-value. Explore, read from different sources, ask people, research.
The truth of the matter is that propaganda has been around since ancient times, and I don't think it will disappear. Virtually every politician, government, movement, etc. has used it one way or the other because it's the safest way to influence people into agreeing with you.
propaganda is not synonymous with truth. it is based on presenting anything but truth. therefore, propaganda is a lie. propaganda will not disappear until individuals start following the truth.
Look for the definition of propaganda in a dictionary and tell me if it says anything about lies.
looked at the definition - never saw the word truth referred or stated in the definition. therefore, propaganda is a lie.
LOL, Ok, I don't think I have much more to contribute here
Typical of those who cannot accept truth. That is why the USA is drowning in debt, suffering from inadequate leadership, and heading further into recession. The nation is doomed if the citizens continue to follow the irrational corrupt politicians.
You obviously have an agenda and can't answer questions objectively. So I don't see what's the point. Good luck with your campaign.
Truth does not require an agenda. It stands above all other attempt to deceive. If it is not truth-it is a lie. Truth always triumphs because it requires no lying support.
If truth can stand on its own, why do you feel the need to reinforce it over and over again? By saying 'truth' more than 16 times in this question it's making you sound like the paranoid conspiracy theorist that needs to confirm it to himself, not us
your question "why do you feel the need to reinforce it over and over again?"
is relatively very appropriate since 65% of the citizens of the USA do not follow the truth. The reason for the repetitive nature is so that those who do not follow it will
That would make sense to me if you were saying "gravity is a real scientific process" rather than "Obey the truth because truth is truth".
I think logic should triumph, frankly. Not sure of the context of this particular question as it does seem to have political overtones.
I wouldn't be too concerned with those who seek to promote illogical beliefs; they generally tend to be discredited.
"What is truth?" - Pontius Pilate.
Funny though, Jesus never answered him and remained silent. Maybe he was just tired of repeating himself?
37 ...Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.” 38 “What is truth?” retorted Pilate. then he went out again to the Jews
Ideally, facts would always win out, but the Mark Twain quote holds true: "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting it's shoes on." For me, there are numerous ways to confirm the validity of something. The first is the source and whether or not it's reputable. The second is confirmation of the same information from other, unrelated sources. And the third is through non-profit fact checking organizations. However, that's just the basics and knowing what is accurate and what isn't will be based largely on logic, critical thinking and a good deal of perspective.
Untrustworthy sources tend to be those that jump to conclusions, make extreme associations and repeat the word 'truth' over and over again in an attempt to jam a cylindrical peg into a square hole. Negative propaganda often survives through well funded repetition.

I saw this as a rhetorical response in another thread, and just could not resist starting a topic about it.I gather, from time well spent within several ministries, wrapped around the compilations, that perhaps the reason people can only believe what the book says is due to a genuine lack of...
