Five Rules of Propaganda

I have borrowed this from a comment by Tim A Hasney. It would be useful for people to know these five rules of propaganda and observe how they are used in so much media and social netwrok output by one faction or another
1) The rule of orchestration: endlessly repeating the same messages in different variations and combinations.
2) The rule of simplification: reducing all data to a simple confrontation between ‘Good and Bad’, ‘Friend and Foe’.
3) The rule of disfiguration: discrediting the opposition by crude smears and parodies.
4) The rule of transfusion: manipulating the consensus values of the target audience for one’s own ends.
5) The rule of unanimity: presenting one’s viewpoint as if it were the unanimous opinion of all right-thinking people.
