But the main reason to why we should completely abolish stereotyping above all other propaganda manipulation techniques is what I stated before, it has a brainwashing effect on human minds. The existence of manipulation through stereotyping and the acceptance of it has made it to be untouchable by the mind, however the mind itself is undeniably touched. We could say these old advertisements are historical and should not be touched, though, we should consider the effect it has on our children, the day they learn about how human kind low-mindedly accepts this foul use of thoughts. How come that we rational, loving people have these suppressed feelings towards others with differences?

The cops also see good in the socs more than the greasers, they are threatened by the the money of the socs. They aren't threatened by what they see to be poor teens, that steel and smoke.

The collaborators could have stopped the perpetrators by telling them no and talking them out of it. The bystanders could have helped the situation by doing something instead of staying quiet. In Elie Wiesel: The Perils of Indifference, Elie talks about indifference and how it affects people, “Indifference, after all, is more dangerous than anger and hatred” (2).

He highlights the effects of exclusion and isolation based on differences, and ridices them in an effort to make people accept others in the world. Subsequently, humanity is a widespread of people and if people hurt and get rid of others that are different, the world as a whole will be excluding those who might make the planet better. By eliminating those with different traits, the world closes itself off to new ideas and improvement as a human race. Instead of fearing differences, society should embrace them, not break those who are a little
The article, The Things People Say, written by Elizabeth Kolbert examines the consequences of group polarization by utilizing the outbreak surrounding President Obama’s birthplace and citizenship. During the 2008 elections, the media played a huge role in spreading the concept that President Obama was not born in the United States and that the birth certificate he revealed was a fake. The author analyzes not only the falsification of the story itself, but also the larger idea regarding the internet’s interference with extremism that can cause misinformation. The tone that was used by the author proved most evident when examining this article.
Nevertheless, there is a turning point, as he states in his article, "Given the level of violence, one can hardly blame people for keeping their mouths shut, but we must also realize that if we don’t nip bad behavior in the bud, it only grows, creating more intimidation, and the vicious cycle continues".

The stereotype about the mentally ill does not help the violence that gets brought into the world. The mentally ill become violent when brought up in a negative manner. One of the many ways violence has been decreased is the knowledge about the mentally ill in the general population and the understanding and communication that the acceptable ways that a mentally ill should be treated. The acceptance and the understanding lead to a better relationship between the mentally ill and the general population which is able to increase the way that the two interact with each other on a regular basis. The media presents the mentally ill as a highly violent natured person.
Jean –Jacques Rousseau believed that technology, knowledge and science corrupts human beings, and that human nature is good. The more knowledge a person have, many take greed into their hand or the more money a person has they believe they are better than another person. Some also believe the more money they have, the more problems they will have in their life. There is a saying that goes “it’s better to be poor and happy than being rich and miserable.” In the case of technology, it is something that corrupts human beings.
It cannot be denied that one the most important aspects of life and it’s intricacies is the power of communication. Whether it be verbal or nonverbal, soft as a petal or harsh as a roaring rapid, communication is what allows humans to understand the complexities of each other.
