My Propaganda reading list. Things that made a big difference to me (all free on inet)
1. [Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes, Jaques Ellul] The intro by Konrad Kellen 1965 (9 paragraphs, 5mins)
2.[Public Opinion, Walter Lippmann 1921] a little long, but even just part 1 instructs why we have "news"
3. [Deception Maxims: Fact & Folklore, CIA 1980] primer for CIA deception tactics, very short and instructive
