All The Propaganda That Fits


Came across the following buried in a long translation in the latest Harper's which Santa-San stuffed into my stocking and to which I am finally getting to just now:

"Propadanda is the use of magic by those who no longer believe in it against those who still do."
W.H. Auden, 'De Droit et de Gauche', 1952

Pretty much says it all, I reckon.
