in the 70’a when I attend college Propaganda Analysis was a REQUIRED course so that we would question the authority at that time. It is no longer taught at the university.

In the early 1940s and my one semester in college before being drafted for WWII I took an elective course called something like ‘Contemporary Writings’. The course prof was a guy who was rumored to lean pretty far to the left. Course readings were from people like of Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Lippmann, Chase even Mussolini as I recall with smattering of people like Lincoln, Hearst and others. The final exam had a question that asked for the definition of ‘propaganda’. My answer was propaganda was like we were being taught and exposed to in the books we had to read and the discussions that were laid out. I was given an A for the test and an A for the course. I have always thought highly of that prof no matter that he and I were not bent the same way politically.
