A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

"A man without a government is like a fish without a bicycle.” Alvaro Koplovich

Carl Jung: Modern Man in Search of a Soul: Chapter 10

Modern Man in Search of a Soul 10  source: Jayson Wiggins

"Jung’s original insight lies in a profound awareness of the powerful influence of myths and symbols on the human psyche; that while it is true that man makes symbols, it is also equally true that symbols make man. His works are too numerous to mention here. Suffice to mention here the most popular and accessible Symbols of Transformation (1911) which marks his split with his mentor and where he introduces his concept of the collective unconscious; Modern Man in Search of a Soul where he explores the spiritual-psychological destitution of modern man deprived of those symbols that give meaning to life. Jung divides the psyche into the ego, the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious. He uses the concept of the symbolism of dream which Freud advanced but he combines it with mythology, religion and philosophy which allows him to posit a universal unconscious that reveals itself in symbolic form via dreams, mysticism and religion. He discovered this universalism even in civilizations and communities which had had no contact with each other. The key to Jung’s idea of a collective unconscious is found in the notion of “archetype.” Let us attempt a schematic exploration of this notion. Jung contends that the collective unconscious determines that our experience is conceived according to certain organizing principles which he calls “the archetypes.” There are many archetypes, too many, in fact, to be fully classified but there are some that affect the human psyche and our lives and destinies most powerfully. Jung outlines those. He notices that many appear in the context of religion which is fertile ground for the rise of symbols a basic underpinning in the rise and development of any civilization."   source: Jayson Wiggins


Soul Searching Psychotherapy:

"Psychotherapists are like the Clergy"

"The writing covers a broad array of subjects such as gnosticism, theosophy, Eastern philosophy and spirituality in general. The first part of the book deals with dream analysis in its practical application, the problems and aims of modern psychotherapy, and also his own theory of psychological types. The middle section addresses Jung's beliefs about the stages of life and Archaic man. He also contrasts his own theories with those of Sigmund Freud.

In the latter parts of the book Jung discusses psychology and literature and devotes a chapter to basic postulates of analytical psychology. The last two chapters are devoted to the spiritual problem of modern man in aftermath of World War I. He compares it to the flowering of gnosticism in the 2nd century and investigates how psychotherapists are like the clergy."
