All expression is an expression of a world view and everyone defends their worldview so everyone is a propagandist. Propaganda in the hands of our elite is a study in near-perfection. Orwell might have called it "a matured totalitarianism"

"The antidote to propaganda is Truth: to stop telling lies – lies about ourselves, lies about the world. "
And we start by not lying to OURSELVES first, telling OURSELVES the truth.

There are not truths just views.

By these definitions, your truth can be assessed as propaganda. What a silly topic.

The problem with telling yourself the truth is that your truth is formed by the bias information the monolithic media tells you. Use the internet and get a different view from the BBC, DW TV, RT and Aljazeera

What is truth? Isn't it different for each person?

Those of you who don't believe in truth - do you believe in facts?

I have lived my life as a seeker. This I have learned. Truth gives the illusion of change, It's like climbing a mountain. At one viewpoint there is one appearance and as one continues up the mountain and views from different directions the view changes often radically. Still, each view with the progression of each view is truth.

You can take near any subject of debate. You can prove the left of that subject drawing up esteemed authorities scientific evidence experience and interpretation of writings. You can prove your truth,

Ah, but the person who disagrees can, most often prove the opposite truth drawing up esteemed authorities
scientific evidence, experience and interpretation of writings and prove just the opposite.

What it basically comes down to is each of us chooses our own truths.

Quantum physics has proven that the belief of the viewer influences that which is viewed.

Don't confuse me with the facts. My mind is made up. LOL

Here's a game I used to play years ago.

Debate
choose a controversial subject that both you and your friend feel stubborn about.

Now, each of you argue from the opposite point of view.

It gets really interesting,

Here's a tip.

Don't try it with an atheist or a fundamentalist Christian.
They very definitely can not exchange viewpoints and both are likely to lose their tempers.

I learned the hard way. LOL

You can play it solitary if you like,

It's safer.

Propaganda I think is when someone is knowingly spreading false information. If someone is passing on something they truly see to be the truth, I myself could not deem them or the subject as "propaganda". Also, passion. If there is dedication and passion included in the subject as Zee has mentioned, it makes things even more intense. Like "guns, wolves, rights, many causes". These are highly debated and then can get outright ugly.
