    it is good idea to saving and donating food, soldiers needed more food or clothes during war time and people had to take care of them. they had extra food to stay strong and win the war.

    I think during the world war 1 in the United States everyone work together to win the war. Everyone contibute to support the soldiers for the reason the allied powers win.

    I believe propaganda is use when someone is trying to take advantage from others. It was the same during the war the government manipulated the citizens instead of helping them. Today propaganda is use to manipulate people who are interested in products or some kind of companies.

    Propaganda is most often used to exaggerate or lie to the people. like in WWI propaganda posters said German soldiers were systematically raping ever woman in Belgium. While in reality only a few cases were reported by the German army and those responsible were severely punished. This and other propaganda at the time brought us into a war we should never have entered.

    Propaganda has always been a method of manipulation in a way. As the the years have gone by the people have changed their opinions towards it, some still get fooled and some don’t. Back then because of the lack of communication (compared to today) people bought most of these statements.

    Propaganda was pretty much a the medias’ way of brainwashing citizens into biased opinions. While in some ways it was positive, it was mainly negative, starting around WWII wiht posters and newspapers against Hitler & Tojo.

    Propaganda really can be a game changer depending on who looks good in the image. People can easily be fooled or confused by some propaganda because they either don’t understand the meaning or just literally take it way too serious. It’s a way of supporting the winning side and making the loser look bad. Of course not everybody liked propagandas, some would go against them becuase they would show strong images, drawings, pictures, etc. of what may be going on. I think Propagandas are a good idea to support one, but also bad because it can sometimes show that we may be losing in something that they are asking for support.

    Propaganda is a great thing in the time of war. It helped motivate the workers, the citizens, and of course the soldiers. If propaganda was not ever used then production would go down, combat efficiency would most likely go down, and morale as well would go down.

    Propaganda took a major role on the motivation for citizens to enlist, invest and over all support the war. Without propaganda and support of the people nobody would have really cared let alone really know anything about how seriously important it is for the United States of America, so thank you cartoonist and publishes for all the propaganda posters, films ect.
