This is a video on the psychology of propaganda. Prof. Kroth reviews five major techniques for how American mass media manipulates and twists the view Americans have of their world.

Look for Implosion: delusion, denial, and the prospect of collapse, coming out shortly.] More information at collectivepsych.com
