World War I
WHAT IS PROPOGANDA: A general definition of propaganda is information favoring only one side. Individuals who use propaganda are attempting to sway public opinion to justify their position. During World War I, all governments issued many kinds of propaganda in order to persuade people to make sacrifices for the war.
Adolf Hitler said in his book, Mein Kampf, “All effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials, and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas.”

#1 Salt Rebellion Dilemma
Jay is a prominent religious leader amongst the Hindu people of India. People in India highly respect Jay and comply with what he says. Ever since the British put a tax on salt, Jay has lead a rebellion against this tax by encouraging his followers to make their own salt using sea water. Thousands of people have heard his message and have been making their own salt.
You are a tax collector for the British Government. Unfortunately, since people have been making their own salt, you have not been able to collect any money. You really need the money to send to your family back in England, plus the Queen of England is upset with you because she is not getting her cut of the tax money you are supposed to be collecting. If you spread a rumor about Jay, you will discredit him in the eyes of his followers and people might go back to buying salt, what should you do?
#2 The Vegetarian Dilemma
You are part of a small group of soldiers from the British army stationed in a remote part of India. India has just been hit with a large monsoon (heavy rain) and the village you are in has flooded. The people in the village are not able to get out of the village and nobody is able to come into the village. As a result, the people are cut off from their food supply and they are starting to starve. There is a farm with dozens of cows ½ a mile from the village. The people in the village will never eat beef because of their religious beliefs. However, they have never had beef and therefore do not know what it tastes like. If you secretly serve the people the beef, you will save their lives but violate their religious beliefs, what should you do?
#3 East Indian Company Dilemma
You are a trader for the East India Company and currently you are the head of a large tea leaf farm in India. Almost everyone in the community works on the farm and it is a major source income for the local people. Unfortunately, a lot of families have not been able to make ends meet and they have a lot of financial problems. A lot of children have been dropping out of school to work on your farm for some extra cash for their family.
If you were to raise the wages of your farm workers, the children would be able to go to school. However, raising their wages would mean less money for you and less money for your company. You really need the money to send home to your family in England. Plus, your bosses in the company might be angry about losing profits and you could lose your job. You know how important education is for these children, but you also have to look out for yourself. What should you do?
# 4 Sati Dilemma
You are a high ranking soldier in the British government and you have been training an elite group of Indian Sepoy Soldiers for battle. You and this group of soldiers have been stationed in South Africa and have been very successful in putting down some of the rebellions. Unfortunately, your best sharp shooter has been killed by some of the locals. You hesitate to tell his family for fear that they will make his widow sit on her husband’s funeral pyre. However, you need to file a death report in order to replace your best man and if you do not, you might not be able to suppress the rebellion and many lives might be lost.

“House Divided” Speech Transcript
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Convention:
If we could first know where we are and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do and how to do it. We are now far into the fifth year since a policy was initiated with the avowed object and confident promise of putting an end to slavery agitation. Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only not ceased but has constantly augmented. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become alike lawful in all the states, old as well as new, North as well as South.
