Abstract

In America today, there is a divide that everyone knows is there, each half has its own reality and its own truths, and this is due to the use of propaganda within media and art. Using the disciplines of mass communication and visual communication to look into the who, how, and why of propaganda within media and art in other countries such as China and Nazi Germany, we will be able to see the who, how and why of propaganda within America. If things continue on the path they are currently on, then at best America may see a peaceful separation, at worst, lives could be lost. The question asked is this, “To what extent has propaganda in media and art divided the US and how can the divisions be healed?” This is a question no one is addressing, with each passing day things only get worse and there is no sight of trying to mend the damage already done. Identifying propaganda with the potential to incite violence and other negative outcomes for America, is what is needed now.

Should the continued use of propaganda be allowed to continue within media and art, and how can the damage already done through the practice of propaganda by these means be fixed or reversed? Being able to reverse it could close the divide in America, but fixing and reversing would be the ideal situation, so that this divide doesn’t happen again.
