🦉🦉🦉Explaining #Kremlin #propaganda technique “political pluralism imitation.” The Russian-state owned and funded mass media has been employing this model in #Russia for a while. Lately, the Kremlin-linked agents are implementing it in the US and other Western countries. 👇
1. In Putin’s Russia, the political discourse is suppressed.
2. Unlike the USSR ideologists, the Kremlin propagandists understand the importance of the public opinion and positive image. “The sublimation of emotions on a political topic” is an important part of the engineered collective mentality.
3. An illusion of political life is created by the mass media and propagandists to the audience’s satisfaction.
4. Political discussions that include opposing views and liberal opinions are staged on TV and the Internet in order to ensure fully experienced surrogate of reality.
5. The purpose of these political shows is “to imitate the enjoyment of politics” and simultaneously push pro-Kremlin point-of-view in a scripted and centralized manner.
6. In the West, the political discourse exists so the goal is different: by exploiting the familiar concept of the freedom of speech, the Kremlin propagandists hold partially scripted discussions to demoralize the population by sowing further discord, distrust and mutual hatred.
7. The goals differ; the technique is the same. Today, #Facebook banned me from sharing this article in groups. Please help to share this information.…
