It often bothers me that words like precocious and propaganda have, in modern times, been laced with negative connotations that are not inherent in the word. So keeping in mind that the definition of propaganda is, “Information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause.” – then this Obama speech, set to music, is one of the finest pieces of propaganda I have seen in a long time.

    I love the work of reclaiming ‘propoganda’–mostly because when I use it with neutral conotation, people are always slightly shocked and remember what I’m talking about.
