I learned from WWII propaganda that the government controlled what they put into the peoples minds. Through posters and just plain fear/humiliation. They did this by making the jews look like absoluetly bad people and that there the reason why the war had started. The humiliation part that happend was if a man where to have affairs with a jewish woman they would put a sign on his chest and make the two of them who werwe being esquorted by the police walk through the streets with it.  It just proved to me that they would do whatever it took to kill all the jewish people.

pepsi assembly

posted Oct 17, 2011, 9:18 AM by nathan vondebur

the pepsi assembly was all about control. about how you control your life and your actions through everything you do. i thought that the pepsi assembly was a good way of showing people that if they make bad choices in life that they could end up dead because of them. i personally just think that it was a good all around movie.

9/11 movie reaction

posted Sep 20, 2011, 10:24 AM by nathan vondebur

I think that the movie we watched about 9/11 was actually pretty scary. The reason i say this is because it shows how much technology can affect the world when it comes to remembering really dramatic and world changing events. Without the technology we would have never captured what truely happend and it probably would have been completly different. so in the end technology effected everything about that tragic day and truely helped shape the world.

I think that every person has there own veiws of what is right and what is wrong. I mean if something is iffy the media is going to blow it up making them seem like there the bad guy if its to over the top for the good they may make them seem like a hero. I personaly think that everyone should just mind there own buisness. I think its a good idea that people are helping out but theres always a point where to much is to much. Someone somewhere is always going to take offense to everything thats why i think that staying neutral is the best way to go.

chapter 1

posted Sep 12, 2011, 9:23 AM by nathan vondebur

What I remember most about chapter 1 is that it talked alot about comunication and what its all about, from oral tradition to modern day and the mass comunication of the internet. I honestly wasnt suprised about anything when it came to chapter 1. it was just kind of whatever to me. What i found interesting was that people are concered with oral tradtions and that they may be lost for ever. What I learned from chapter 1 is that people are really weird and worry way to much when it comes to modern life. People shouldnt be concerned with other peoples life and that everyones so caught up email, texting, internet that they know everything about everyone.

If you post ur address phone number or personal information you could be stalked by predators or creepy people. I would personally say that being stalked by a creeper would be a legitimate concern. You could get in trouble via the law from cyber bullying. That if they cyberbully they could not get a job in the future because they would have a tract record of immaturity. Students should realize that the internet is permant and everything you say will stay on there. A couple rules that i think would help is that you should keep your private life in the private, the outside world should not need to know about whats happening in your life. Also that people may take offense in your posts so keep it nice.
