The Psychology Of Mass Media As A Propaganda Tool

"The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was." wrote Czech author Milan Kundera about life under communist dictatorship in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting.
How do you alter a nations culture; erase its memory? By control of the nation's mass media.
