You think you are immune to propaganda? Think again. I’ll prove it to you with this shirt that is the talk of the town. You will be surprised at how many people have been suckered by propaganda and had no idea.
I’ll show you with this great shirt I just got from a friend, and what we know about it so far:
1) It’s called “you are not immune to propaganda.” 2) It’s bright red in color! 3) The lettering is really big on the front (which means they want us to read it). 4) It says “we don’t need your consent” right under where you would put your name for checkout.
This is a shirt that you should wear if you don’t want to be influenced by propaganda. This is because it has proven to be true that we are not immune to propaganda and we can still be swayed by false information, which may lead us into believing something wrong. We will always react better when our minds are open and aware!
With only a few words on his chest, he could walk outside into any protest with confidence that no one would know what they were protesting against until they read it for themselves exactly as it should be. In fact, he saw someone wearing an “I’m not afraid” shirt walking by him today who was carrying a sign supporting freedom of speech from government censorship (or something like that). So there you go.
The shirt that everyone is talking about: you are not immune to propaganda
This week, a guy named Brett packed up his backpack and left home in pursuit of fighting injustice. He bought a “you’re not immune to propoganda” t-shirt on the way out. The message is loud and clear we don’t want anything influencing our minds because we know it may be false information! This man knows that when he sees an event firsthand or reads for himself what’s going on, he’ll make better decisions with openness and awareness than if someone were trying to convince him through words alone. So far so good he passed by someone wearing an “I’m not afraid”, who was carrying one sign saying something like freedom from government
interference and another saying “Iran is evil.”
The shirt has been a topic of conversation for weeks. It’s resonating with people because they are realizing that we have to be careful about the information and messages we’re taking in from our world–otherwise, it’ll influence how we think and act. In today’s day and age, you can’t just blindly believe what the media says or take anything at face-value; there is so much propaganda out there–it’s time to become your own advocate! We want to know more about Brett and his story, but this post doesn’t mention him again as he seems like an one-off character who came across someone else wearing an “I’m not afraid” t-shirt on the way out.
Everyone wants their voice to be heard and to feel like they are being represented. They want their voice, beliefs, or opinions to not go unnoticed by the masses especially when it comes to something bigger than themselves.
We are witnessing this phenomenon play out now with Brett Kavanaugh and the “I’m not afraid” shirts worn by protesters on his behalf.
Existing research has shown that people will often change their beliefs to match those of others in their group–even if it’s just for a little bit, they’ll start thinking like them or at least be influenced to some degree. Research also reveals how well-known statements can influence behavior; nearly 50% of all participants were more likely to follow through with an action after hearing one specific sentence associated with it than without any statement at all! That means you should think twice before letting these words slip off your tongue: “It’s too hard/complicated/unlikely…” because you’ll likely end up walking away from whatever you were trying to do.
This is a good example of how the power of persuasion and conformity can be harnessed even when it’s against your best interests or beliefs and making sure this doesn’t happen falls on you, too! You never know if some cause that seems like it could change things for the better might instead work to brainwash people into believing something dangerous, so being open-minded about what you hear while also taking responsibility for your own thoughts and actions will keep you safe. Plus, knowing more about these tactics means that they’ll become less effective as time goes on.
