- You really have to admire the subtlety of this one.
- It doesn't need to be subtle when the goal is to reinforce support. The rule of thumb I've followed tends to go like this. Subtle propaganda is to convince people who don't support your beliefs, while obvious propaganda is to entrench a belief.
- That's an interesting observation, and I've noticed that most Israeli propaganda is aimed at Americans and Europeans, and that's usually reflected in their language and the angle of how they approach the topic, like criticizing liberals or the UN instead of Palestinians directly.
- I've always heard that while everyone hates political attack ads, they work because they increase voter turnout from your supporters. You might have 60% of the country that says they want you to win in the polls, but only 40% will show up to vote if they're not interested in the election, whereas 60% will show up to vote if you tell them the other guy will cause an economic collapse and turn your children into homeless drug addicts. I wonder if the same effect applies to propaganda?
- Are election ads not propaganda?
- Election adds are propaganda of the worst kind.
- But if they work...
- They are, but I wish they more frequently had an artistic side to them.
- But are there actually people who do believe in that not knowing the truth? I mean there's 1) those who oppose Israel and 2) those who know what Israel does and despite that still support it for strategic or other reasons. Does there actually exist a third group which is neither?
- 2) those who know what Israel does and despite that still support it for strategic or other reasons. Does there actually exist a third group which is neither? I don't see why this category of people needs to be qualified with "strategic or other reasons", but "1) those who oppose Israel" doesn't. If there are people who "oppose Israel" (without qualification), clearly there would also be people who support Israel (without qualification).
