Great men, even during their lifetime, are usually known to the public only through a fictitious personality.
what is propaganda, if not the effort to alter the picture to which men respond, to substitute one social pattern for another?
Without some form of censorship, propaganda in the strict sense of the word is impossible. In order to conduct a propaganda there must be some barrier between the public and the event. Access to the real environment must be limited, before anyone can create a pseudo-environment that he thinks wise or desirable.
