Natalie Nougayrede: a victim of the propaganda system she doesn’t think exists

As the “father of public relations” Edward Bernays explained in his 1928 PR manual, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society … it is the intelligent minorities which need to make use of propaganda continuously and systematically.”

This echoes the thoughts of another influential intellectual of the period, Walter Lippmann, who believed the elite needed to be protected from the “bewildered herd” — the general public. How? By “the manufacture of consent.”
