Propaganda

Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented. Propaganda is often associated with material prepared by governments, but activist groups and companies can also produce propaganda.

Propaganda surrounds you

Propaganda is when you watch the news and make snide comments about the opposing political party. Propaganda is when you refuse to consider whether the person you disagree with is right. Propaganda is reassuring yourself and assuming YOU ARE CORRECT, YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU ARE STRONG. When you are very, very weak indeed. Weakened by falsehood.

This video is a surprisingly factual (Though with obvious bias), and largely true North Korean documentary on propaganda. They do not recognize much of their own use of propaganda, or that of countries friendly to North Korea, but do focus on key propaganda information from the West, especially from the United States. Ironically, this documentary on propaganda is a form of propaganda in itself. It's more than 2 hours long, but worth a watch for anyone with the time.
