Event Description

MARCH 21 at 5:30 at the Pickford Theatre
Afraid of the Dark Series presents Global Warming Is “Good” for You! How Propaganda Controls the Public Mind 
There is an "invisible government" that "pulls the wires that control the public mind" in the words of Edward Bernays, the father of spin. Author and environmental activist John Stauber reveals how this propaganda-for-hire industry manages our beliefs, perceptions and actions on behalf of the world's most powerful industries and politicians. 
"John Stauber is an investigative writer, organizer and activist.  He has authored six books including the best-sellers "Toxic Sludge Is Good for You" in 1995,( an expose' of 20th century propaganda), "Trust Us We're Experts; How Industry Manipulates Science And Gambles With Your Future" in 2001 and a New York Times best-seller "Weapons of Mass Deception" in 2003.  In 1993 he founded the non-profit Center for Media and Democracy in Madison, Wisconsin to investigate and expose organized corporate and government propaganda, running it until retiring in 2009.  He lives in rural Wisconsin."
