  1. How much brainwashing do you think the government does with this exact way to influence young lives?

  2. Scott,
    I think you raise an important point. Photographs, movies and graphic design has long been used as propaganda by governments and used by advertisers to strengthen the impulse to buy.

    One of my goals in spreading the ideas of visual literacy is to help others “read” the messages, both implicit and explicit in design, photos and videos. This helps the viewer make an informed decision on the objectivity of the information and whether or not the messages contained within the art should be trusted.

    Certainly, parents should take a leading role in helping their children decipher the often subtle messages in the written word as well as visual media. I would love to see classes like this taught in schools.
