'Our Choice Is Clear': Holocaust Survivor Outlines History of Propaganda in the U.S...

• By The Defender Staff

In a recent CHD.TV presentation, Holocaust survivor Vera Sharav traced modern political and commercial propaganda back to Word War I, warning that officials today use the same psychological manipulation tactics to control COVID-19 policy dissent and to push the "Great Reset."

Holocaust survivor and human rights advocate Vera Sharav unpacked how governments and corporations use propaganda to control populations in a recent CHD.TV mini-documentary presentation.

In "Propaganda & Its Insidious Tactics of Persuasion — Then & Now," Sharav told viewers that a sustained propaganda campaign propelled global COVID-19 responses more than any virus, allowing officials to strip civil liberties under the guise of an emergency.

Yet with firsthand experience of tyranny under the Nazis, Sharav, now 90, believes people have the power to wake up and resist new threats to freedom through grassroots organizing.

"The globalists' greatest fear is that we will stop believing them" and come to resist and fight back against their agendas, Sharav said.

Sharav traced the weaponization of psychology in consumer marketing and politics back to World War I, and sounded an alarm about increasingly sophisticated tactics of mass persuasion and control being used to herd the population today.

Weaponizing psychology: the roots of propaganda

Propaganda aimed at influencing public opinion or actions is far from a modern invention.

However, according to Sharav, World War I and subsequent commercial advertising brought organized, mass psychological manipulation to an entirely new battlefield — the American mind.

"Modern propaganda, both political and commercial, is an Anglo-American invention," Sharav said, tracing its origins to President Woodrow Wilson's administration. Though elected on an anti-war platform, Sharav said financial pressures from J.P. Morgan and other banking conglomerates pushed Wilson to enter World War I.

To drum up lagging public support for the war effort, Wilson in 1917 created a new propaganda agency, the Committee on Public Information (CPI). CPI pioneered techniques like demonizing the enemy, inflating threats and pushing feel-good slogans to bypass reason and spark emotional reactions.
