Propaganda Blog

This is a nice website.  You can tell the quality of something by its website.  This wedsite was also full of information it was easy to find and i actually enjoyed learning about propaganda.  I learned that this was probably the lowest part of the worlds history.  We learn about it in school so it never happens again.

Pepsi

After many years I was slightly disappointed in this years assembly.  Maybe its because the first time I watched it, the video was extremely intense and ever since then I never think the Pepsi videos are as good as the first one I saw.

This year was pretty decent though.  I know the topics and situations they discussed in the video kind of hit home, and made some upset.  Other people were effected by the video also, and I think the video helped them make better decisions.

Even though the Pepsi videos are very intense and heart wrenching, some people feat. in the video were slightly cheesey.  Like that girl talking about her ex boyfriend and how she hurts when he texts her?  Its like umm? okay dont text back? And that guy that was talking about the gangs sounded slightly fake, but besides that I thought the video was decent, and I hope they inprove next year.  Even though I will not be veiwing it.

I think it's really important for PEPSI to sponsor a program like this that will motivate high school students to sit back and actually think about the choices they're making and the consequences that will come along with them. Every year each video that is shown is very eye opening for me and I'm sure for many others. It makes you sad and extremely sympathetic for the people in the stories because the only reason their stories are being told is to prevent things like bullying and texting while driving so teens can be safer. I think PEPSI should keep showing these to us every year because they do make a difference.

1.) I do not think it would be hard. Because you would already to be used to living that way, so it might actually be easy.
 
2.) Absolutely. Technology is going to advance forever because of how many things people want to make better, or make better of someone else's technology.
 
3.) For me, it doesn't bother me. Im usually working, hunting, or hanging out with friends, so the only piece of technology I really use is my phone.

Yes i think it would be hard to live before postmodernism because technology is such a big part of our daily lives.
Yes technology will keep advancing it will never decrease.
technology will keep growing and will become more and more a part of our lives

I believe that it would be diffucult in some ways for me to switch to a time before post modernism. I don't think it would be nearly as hard if I were born in such an era simply because I was used to the lack of technology. Now that I'm used to it now, It would be more difficult to switch back.
 
I think technology will continue to get better and more advanced. Technology has always advanced through the years, why would it stop now.
 
No, we should not cut back on technology, it makes living easier.

Well, compared to now and what we know of course it would be hard to us. But, back then they had no idea what the future of today would be so honestly I would feel the same as I do now.
 
Yes, because we live in a society that pushes science to new limits and horizons, and I think that a few years from now our economy may be so advanced that we will communicate by halograms(like Star Trek!!!!!). Haha. But seriously, yes it will keep advancing because look at the difference between today and five years ago. It will be the same. Science will never end.
 
Yes and no....sometimes we push a little too much and cause damage to our planet and environment but we need the inventions that we have created in order to live the lives we're accustomed to.
