MePod.s02.e02 // #ThoughtCrime #Propaganda –Republished

This week Andrew and Eddy take a break from the Moral Economy’s philosophical twists on current events in order give you the rundown on thoughtcrime and propaganda. Andrew introduces George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984 and compares the unsettling concepts from the novel with the world we have today. Which do you think is grimmer? Eddy then takes over and gives us an introduction to Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky’s model of how propaganda is used in the United States (and elsewhere), as laid down in their book Manufacturing Consent.
