We are surrounded by propaganda. Public relations campaigns, political messaging, and advertising are all forms of propaganda. Simply recognizing the extent to which we are exposed to manipulative and often deceptive forms of communication helps us to be more skeptical consumers of news, advertising and political messaging.
Propaganda is disseminated to both the Left and the Right. If we can become aware of how all of us are susceptible to propaganda and other manipulative and covert techniques, we may be able to see through the lies and distortions that divide us.
We often think of propaganda as coming from fringe groups, but propagandists include governments, political parties, politicians, religious institutions, political groups, corporations, partisan news, and the media.
We can protect ourselves by understanding the basics of propaganda. In his presentation, Mr. Procida describes the effects and types of propaganda and how propagandists spread disinformation and cause division. The presentation can be modified for particular audiences and time frames. From a short speech or sermon to an hour-long presentation or two-hour workshop, Mr. Procida will provide an informative and entertaining presentation and lead an engaging discussion for your group, class, church, institution or community. He is also available for interviews on podcasts and other media.
The stakes are high. Russia is spreading propaganda in an effort to disrupt the election, divide and demoralize us, and cause us to lose faith in our institutions, the Constitution and democracy. We can protect the integrity of the election from foreign attacks on our democracy by teaching people how to identify misleading and divisive disinformation.
Feel free to contact Rich Procida at (562) 665-3317 to arrange for an interview, speech, sermon or presentation. It's important to educate people now before Russia and other foreign and domestic sources disseminate propaganda to influence the outcome of the election. Our democracy depends upon an informed and discerning electorate.
