Addressing the spread of propaganda throughout the world

Issue in GA 4: Special Political and Decolonization

Until the end of the 19th century, the term propaganda was neither negative nor positive. It could be defined as the propagation of a particular doctrine or practise. For example, the spread of certain information by simply using posters or short films. Today, propaganda has implicitly political – and negative – connotations. It is something our opponents use against us. 

Propaganda today can be defined as  “information, ideas, opinions, or images, often only giving one part of an argument, that are broadcast, published, or in some other way spread with the intention of influencing people's opinions”. There are many ways for governments to influence the opinion of a country’s population. For example, through social media particularly in countries such as China, Russia, America and countries in the Middle East.
