Propaganda

Propaganda is seen as the art of persuasion. It is used to convinced others that your side of the story is correct.


The raised fist has been used in propaganda for so long to represent solidarity and support. It has been used by people who are fighting for their freedom and rights.


V from ‘V for Vendetta’ was a character who fought for the freedom of the people against the British Tyranny. Although he had good intentions, he did it in a more violent way which isn’t really the right way of doing it. However, I felt like he did what he had to do to save the people from the government as everything was controlled to the extreme.


Americans felt like their privacy was invaded when they heard that the NSA loos through their private emails and information. They were outraged and it caused a huge mistrust to the government.

This propaganda poster shows that the citizens of America weren’t allowed to talk about matters that the government thought was controversial. They don’t want them to think that they don’t have the freedom or right to talk about whatever they want because the government wants them to shut up and know their social status.

This is one of the more popular propaganda posters from America which is a poster with a man pointing at whoever is reading the poster and trying to persuade them to join the army for the good of their country by risking their life.

Women back then were seen as just someone who will stay at home to take care of the kids, cook and clean the house and wait for their husbands. However, during the war, since the men were off to serve their country, there was a shortage of men to do other jobs, so the women stepped up and did jobs that were considered hard labour. This poster shows that women can also do what guys can and it motivated other women to contribute as well.

This poster was created by the US office for the war to imply that by doing less work and taking a break helped the Axis powers which were composed of Germany, Italy and Japan. The poster is also quite racist by depicting the japanese in such a way that it is offensive.
