This Is Not Propaganda – Peter Pomerantsev
If you already think that social media has a scary and intrusive reach then this book is not going to reassure you that you have nothing to fear.
His book starts with the premise that “When information is a weapon, everyone is at war” and goes on to say that not only have we lost our sense of peace and democracy but that we have also lost our sense of what those words even mean.
“Reporting from Russia, China, Europe, America, the Balkans, Syria, the Philippines and Brexit Britain, Pomerantsev exposes the frightening world of coercion and control behind social media and political messaging. Through our current smog of smouldering bulls**t, This Is Not Propaganda shines a necessary, humane and dissident light.” Nicholas Rankin
