Here’s a fun AskReddit thread to pepper your Wednesday with: ‘Which Propaganda Effort Was So Successful People Still Believe It Today?’

To be honest, some of the responses therein veer a bit more into ‘popular misconceptions’ rather than outright examples of propaganda. Still others would fall more neatly into the category of ‘marketing lie’. But as we know from our boy Edward Bernays—founder of public relations as we understand it today—the barrier between the three concepts is porous indeed.

Exactly.

Regardless, I love this kinda shit. You can check out the full thread here, but below are some devious highlights. There’s no mention of the lies swallowed whole and regurgitated by the mainstream media that allowed the United States and its allies to commit the supreme crime of the modern day that was the destruction of Iraq, but that’s because they all know how untrue that all was now. And they’ll obviously never make any ‘mistake’ like that ever again.
