Propaganda is a mode of communication used to manipulate or influence the opinion of groups to support a particular cause or belief. Over the centuries, propaganda has taken the form of artwork, films, speeches, and music, though it's not limited to these forms of communication.

Though its use is not exclusively negative, propaganda very often involves a heavy emphasis on the benefits and virtues of one idea or group, while simultaneously distorting the truth or suppressing the counter-argument. For example, the Nazi party rose to power by promoting the idea that it would lead Germany out of economic depression, which it claimed was, among other things, the result of Jewish people stealing jobs from hard-working Germans.


Example:

The anti-smoking ad, produced by the American Legacy Foundation, is a less obvious example of propaganda. By referencing the negative effects of smoking on health and using the image of the noose, this advertisement is attempting to change people's behavior by sending the message that smoking is undesirable and deadly.
