Propaganda and Just War Theory
Investigating the intersections of propaganda and Just War theory, this chapter delves into the significance of the power of propagandism to ‘manufacture consent’, and for people to resist those influences and use their voices to resist, to think critically, and to expose the financial gains of warmongering. Exploring the complicated nature of propaganda and Just War theory as presented in Woolf’s Three Guineas and ‘Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid’, alongside Arthur Ponsonby’s Falsehood in Wartime (1928) and Edward Bernay’s Propaganda (1928), Allen offers a way of reading Woolf as a theorist of peace whose message remains just as relevant in the contemporary moment of twenty-first century war and violence as it was in her own lifetime.
