Ben Shapiro: The world’s largest mass propaganda machine

In the following presentation, Ben Shapiro explains, the world’s largest mass propaganda machine. A machine so powerful that it’s essentially able to beam propaganda directly into your brain, while you pay for the pleasure. That machine is Hollywood.

Hollywood writers, producers, directors, actors create characters we keep wanting to spend time with, then have those characters act in ways most of us would judge wrong. Then, in effect, they ask us a question: Isn’t it really okay that Rachel from Friends decided to have a baby without first marrying Ross? After all, you like Ross and you like Rachel! How can what they do be bad?

By all means, enjoy television – I do. But remember, the people making TV don’t merely want to entertain you. They want to influence you. They want you to think like they think. And unless you’re aware of what they’re trying to do, chances are, you will.
