An excellent introduction to the propaganda techniques being employed on Western populations and on a global basis. Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member Walter Lippmannā€™s comments on manufacturing consent as a means of engineering democracy appear near the beginning of the video. Lippmann played an important role during WWI as the research director of the Inquiry, in the drive to establish the League of Nations, the predecessor to the United Nations. The clip offers incisive analysis and a solid overview of the role that propaganda and mass manipulation has played in modern history.
