Unfair advantage

There are two quite different evils about propaganda as now practiced. On the one hand, its appeal is generally to irrational causes of belief rather than to serious argument; on the other hand, it gives an unfair advantage to those who can obtain most publicity, whether through wealth or through power…. The objection to propaganda is not only its appeal to unreason, but still more the unfair advantage which it gives to the rich and powerful.
