That’s how propaganda works; by creating impressions.
I remember such impressions from when I was a child. I just knew that Conservatives were proper politicians whereas Labour were not. I just knew that Russia was a dark and dismal place where everyone was perpetually miserable.
My antidote turned out to be My Life in the Bush of Ghosts by Brian Eno and David Byrne. The various tracks set indoctrinating speaking to music, and thereby somehow revealed its subliminal influence to my consciousness. From then on, I couldn’t read, watch or listen to “news” without feeling its hooks trying to penetrate my mind. It was so insidious that I banned the lot from my living space.
I had minimal engagement with current affairs until the internet came along and put me in charge of the flow of information.
