Something I wanted to bring to the attention of the board, in the vain but fond idealistic hope that this is still a board where National Socialists meet to discuss important topics for the movement.
I've noticed that alot of talking points and memes used by our movement chiefly and sometimes souly rely on the use facts and statistics to prove the validity of our position across all issues.
While this doubtless does attract a certain level of intellectually logical people (or autistis if you want to be less charitable) It does little to redpill the masses on our beliefs.
Well cheifly because the masses do not base their opinions on logic, but upon emotion. Using logic only latter (and usually flimsily) to explain the positions they already hold regardless of the strength of their argument.
For anyone curious there is actually a biologically psychological reason for this, namely that in primordial times the average tribe member had little to no need understand the complexities what he was doing but had a very great need to obey for the group (and his genes) to survive.
This produced actual selection for natural emotional fanaticism as a net asset. This is one of the many reasons why any surviving civilizations today has some form of religion. But I digress.
Regardless, the fact of the matter is that when a person hears, for instance as an example of popular and successful use of propaganda, that 6,000,000,000 jews died in the holocaust
they dont really know how to process that knowledge
Since people are not hardwired to know, or be able to comprehend the deaths of millions of people in their life time
As a result.
The real success of propaganda are used by emotional empathy for an individual.
For a person.
A person that, in good propaganda one will come to intimately know and sympathize with on a personal level, until their eventual graphic demise, which will then be given a face. Namely the face the propagandist wants to destroy
A good example of this would be for instance Anne Frank. In the propaganda piece of "her diary". The reader is given an indepth understanding of Anne, lasting over months time. One is given examples of her hopes, beliefs, aspirations, feelings and is left feeling absolute and total sympathy for this girl
Only to have her ripped away by the brutal terrifying and evil Nazis as she in mid sentence confesses her apparently ill believed faith in humanity.
Hate is a hard thing to make.
But it is easiest to make after the loss of one someone loves.
A good propaganda artists uses emotion to make his reader "fall in love" on some level with a representative of the subject matter, only to strip her away by use of the enemies you seek to either make or reveal to them (depending on whether or your instance happened or not) and thusly bring them closer to your understanding of the world.
This thread is welcome to discussion of propaganda and posting of memes for circulation
I for one think the "And one day for no reason at all" meme has a lot of potential and would love to se more instances of it
but feel welcome to post whatever you will.
