"A way more scary paintings than any of the nightmare novels of George Orwell. With the good judgment that's the nice tool of French concept, Ellul explores and makes an attempt to turn out the thesis that propaganda, no matter if its ends are demonstrably sturdy or undesirable, isn't just damaging to democracy, it's maybe the main severe probability to humanity working within the sleek world." -- la Times

"An exhaustive catalog of horrors. It exhibits how glossy, dedicated guy, surrounded and seized by means of propaganda, regularly surrenders himself to it in basic terms too willingly, specially in democracies--because he's trained for his rule as dupe. 'The such a lot favorable second to grab a guy and impression him,' Ellul writes, 'is whilst he's by myself within the mass; it's at this aspect that propaganda should be most efficient. this can be the placement of the 'lonely crowd,' or of isolation within the mass, that's a normal made of modern day society, that is either used and deepened via the mass media.' " -- l. a. unfastened Press
