On propaganda

Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state.” – Unknown

Because today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups…So I ask, in my writing, what is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not trust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing.” – Phillip K. Dick
