    Facinating read

    The first lines: 'The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.' This was written in 1928. This nephew of Sigmund Freud worked in Woodrow Wilson's creation, the Committee on Public Information, and saw first hand how the public's mind can be manipulated. Wilson was elected on a peace platform and had to transform the country to go to war against the German Kaiser. Bernays later helped publicize the American Tobacco Company, and is credited as a 'father' of public relations. Anyone interested in understanding how the masses are molded by the powers that be must read this book!

    Nazi Germany learns from Walter Lippmann

    Who would imagine that "propaganda" so closely related to Nazi Germany would have started here in the USA? Some journalist praise Walter Lippmann and President Wilson but few knew about their use of propaganda to get the US into World War I. Seem's like some of American liberal "saints" are turning out to be devils in disguise.

    Interesting Read

    It gives an interesting insight into the thinking of the early 1900's as to "propaganda" which in today's terms seems alot like basic marketing. Bernays does become a little too full of himself at times in this book, but at the time of it's publication the details that he goes into were not as common place as they are today.
