Every one of us is exposed to propaganda techniques every day. They're designed to persuade us to accept ideas, buy propositions and products, or spur action. Parents and teachers use them to guide behavior. Advertisers and media sell us stuff. Religious leaders use them to inspire (and fill collection plates) and, of course, politicians rely on propaganda to get elected and influence public opinion. We all use these techniques, even unconsciously, to win arguments, persuade, flirt, convince and coerce those around us. The Propaganda Game is designed to teach you how to recognize more than fifty different techniques so your responses to this daily onslaught will be more informed, alert and discriminating. Our database has thousands of examples from the aphorisms of the wise to the screechings of the scoundrels of history. No matter who you are, young, old, rich, poor, devoted or indifferent, no matter what your world view, playing this game will sharpen the mental tools needed to make sense of an increasingly complex world. We do not endorse any political, religious, or ideological viewpoint here at The Propaganda Game site - we seek only the manipulative mechanisms in all postures, and offer a magnifying glass to see them. It is one thing to know that you're being mislead, it's another to know HOW you're being mislead. We invite you to begin your journey into Propaganda by looking at very basic examples from various spheres in life shown below.
