Episode 63: Playing Endless Games of Follow The Leader
The Modern International Propaganda Blueprint:
"The observation marked a change that came about after a long buildup. Cheap parchment replaced rare papyrus. The printing press replaced the quill. The telegraph and telephone replaced the pony express. We went from oral to scribal, to literate, to audio-visual-digital-cybemetic mass-produced culture. The quantum- leap occurred when satellites connected them all, all around the world. The stage was set for centrally-scripted real-time live global imagery evoking instant reaction and feeding media events back to influence and ongoing crisis."

"Historiography is a communicative activity that relates the past to the present and future. But, as any communicative activity, it depends not only on the events to be communicated about and the skill of the commumcating parties but also on the means and modes of communication. When the means change, as Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, Elizabeth Eisenstein and others have observed, access to and control over communications change and the telling of stories, including history, also changes."
"The boiling point is reached when the rower to create a crisis merges with the power to direct the movie about it. ParticIpation, witness and confirmation hitherto limited to those on the scene can now be a vicarious global experience and response, or cooptation, while the event is still in progress. Having achieved the desired outcome, the movie ends, but the images remain in memories and archives."
