WHAT IS PROPAGANDA?
Propaganda is the art of insinuating one idea under
cover of another. Recently a capitalist wanted to get cer
tain ideas to his men: he had the ideas prepared by one
skilled in the jargon of the water-front labor unions; he
had them printed under a conspicuous union label; he had
the printed leaflets distributed at the gates of his factory
by men wearing the union button. The ideas were solely
for his own one-sided benefit. That is propaganda. A
clergyman uses the unctious language of the old ortho
doxy to break down the intellectual content of it; he util
izes the old forms to sap them of their meanings; he al
lows his efforts to be "assisted" by outside interests who
are wholly sympathetic with the ideas and attitudes which
he is insidiously attacking. That is propaganda. To take
the natural instincts of the people for reform and helpful
improvement and use those instincts as the motive power
by which an ulterior result is obtained, is propaganda. To
talk to the people about freedom and independence and na
tional glory, for the sake of turning out one set of job
holders to put another set of job-holders in that is propa
ganda. But to take a fact to which the people are blind and hold
it up before them in season and out of season; to wear
your colors openly and state your objective plainly and use
the simplest and most direct methods of putting your ideas
hefore the consideration of other minds that is not propa
ganda. The word propaganda is not inself a bad one, and
does not originally relate to bad practice. But it has fallen
upon bad company. The propagandist today is a man who
has something under cover either the real objective to be
attained, or his own relation to it.
It is one of the most difficult things for an editor and a
reader these days to do detect and eliminate propaganda.
Our daily press and magazines are full of it. Various so
cieties and fraternities and associations are full of it. Even
the pulpit is ignorantly infected by it. What we need
everywhere is, first, a straight road to the facts of a tiling,
and second, a straight mind to resolve the facts into their
'JUST ONE MORE TAX"
"This is just one more tax" is the barnyard and curi
Mone opinion of thousands of country taxpayers and city
taxpayers on the pending income tax law. While this hasiv
opinion hardly does justice to the law, it isn't far off from
the facts. It would be more accurate to say that this law
opens up the way for higher taxes, which it most assuredly
While the income tax promises to reduce property taxes
to the extent that it collects money from income tax, that
very promise excites hopes that new taxes can he voted
property to absorb the amount of the expected saving.
Thousands are supporting the income tax measure in
the hope that it will enable them to get property and mill
age taxes voted for their own pet purposes.
If we ratify this income tax law we simply are inviting
all the millage propagandists to get their pet millage meas
ures on state, county and local ballots.
Do you know a millage enthusiast, with a pet hobby,
who also is not in favor of this state income tax? All the
enthusiasts favor it; they just love to vote taxes on other
pcopie, and this state income tax looks good to them be
cause it opens the way to vote other new taxes on the pre
text that reduction of property taxes provides the money
ihev seek for their pet schemes.- -Oregon Voter.
