Hi there, I have just started my semester on Media information at the university of Bergen, and for one of my assignments I was to write a short paper on Media, Representation and Identity.

One of the things that topics that struck my fancy were government propaganda, and its use. Most of the people I go to class with wanted to write about the American propaganda during war times, or just random propaganda shown to encourage people to do a special thing for its government. (Conserve power, eat more fresh vegetables, eat less red meat, more white meat and that sort)

Now, I don窶冲 know if this is true or not, but I remember reading about the Japanese government promoting 窶徂appy propaganda窶? to cure 窶忱outh depression窶?
One of the things I heard was that Yatta, by Happatai (or the whole Happatai for that sake) was funded by the government to promote more happy-do-good feeling among young people.
Now I don窶冲 know how true this is, or if the government is promoting these sorts of things at all, but any info you could give would be welcome.
