With thousands of advertisements seen by Americans everyday, and a corporate media that reinforces the needs of Empire, propaganda in the U.S. is more pervasive and effective than ever before. The manipulation of public opinion through suggestion can be traced back to the father of modern propaganda, Edward Bernays, who discovered that preying on the subconscious mind was the best way to sell products people don't need, and wars people don't want.

Argentina’s African Roots
Argentina’s Afro-descendant community has long struggled for recognition of its cultural contribution to the country. Now the Department of Human Rights has published a book entitled “Argentina’s African Roots: Visibility, Recognition and Rights,” which contains articles, pictures, poems, stories and testimonies that reflect the diversity of the country’s African-Argentine community. The book tells the stories of Africans brought to the shores as slaves in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the hardships they have faced and the many contributions they have made to Argentina. The authors hope that the book will be adopted as a text in the nation’s schools and especially in history classes that have never even touched the issue.
