The President has selected people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise to serve on a Propaganda Commission – four people who will challenge one another as they analyze WWII propaganda thoroughly and from different points of view, making more effective their final recommendation. The President has charged the Commission members with seeking the highest truths, not fearing, but embracing controversy, and coming away with the most accurate perspective possible. It is in this manner that the commission members will formulate the most responsible recommendation.
The President also has determined that the study of one state and its citizens’ experiences during WWII would be representative of and accurately reflect the U.S., as a whole; Montana is that designated state. You are asked to use the following four key questions as a framework to guide your study within the context of this time period and the materials you will examine:
The real struggle is not between East and West, or capitalism
but between education and propaganda.
