Too often have we heard people say "I try to read as many news sources as possible so that I can get a balanced view". The problem is that, as Jaques Ellul said in his book "Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes": "The aim of modern propaganda is no longer to modify ideas, but to provoke action. It is no longer to change adherence to a doctrine, but to make the individual cling irrationally to a process of action. It is no longer to transform an opinion but to arouse an active and mythical belief." He first published this in 1965 and so many decades have passed since then. In his revolutionary book, he describes the viral aspects of propaganda and explores the fact that propagandized information is indeed a virus. Your body has an immune system to fight off viruses, you can wear protective equipment to reduce the chances of being infected with a physical virus like COVID19, but you don't come equipped to fight off an information virus. There is simply too much information and too many agendas for making you, the reader, take some irrational action to your own detriment and line the pockets of invisible men.
