Roman leaders utilized propaganda to project their agenda to an expansive and diverse empire, manipulating the audience to think and behave in a certain manner. Roman coins, shrines and temples such as, Mars Ultor and countless statues were all forms of propaganda and it extended to written forms seen in the works of Augustus, Virgil and Horace. In particular Virgil wrote, Aeneid, the greatest piece of Augustan Propaganda in Ancient Rome. Just as the Romans made use of propaganda to shape perception of ordinary citizens, likewise contemporary artists have projected their own opinions through artwork seen in Brian Moore's graphic posters.
The Aeneid is an epic poem written by Virgil, according to The Humanities: Culture, Continuity & Change it “was Greek in its inspiration”. Written around 30-19 BCE it expresses the story of Aeneas’s journey in search of land where he is destined to build the city of the Roman Empire. Aeneid's fundamental reason for existing is to make a myth that combines Rome's authentic and social personality. This quest for starting points of a race or society is a political attempt, in that it looks to legitimize the Roman Empire's presence and to extol the empire through the poem’s greatness. The Aeneid is likewise a creative attempt, and thusly to release the ballad as unimportant purposeful publicity to disregard its undeniable imaginative legitimacy. Throughout the epic poem emperor Augustus is mentioned, it seems that Virgil is showing his appreciation for the emperor.
“Behold, at last, that man, who was foretold...
Augustus Caesar, kindred unto Jove.
who brings with him a golden age...
His sway shall extend into India and Africa,
and he shall stretch the dominion of the Romans
beyond the sun and stars”
(Virgil, 1995, Bk. VI- ll. 788-796)
Brian Lane Winfield Moore, known as Brain Moore is a modern propaganda artist who displays his art on his blog. He creates posters based on old WWIII propaganda posters and updates their message to today’s technological culture. Three examples are Wikipedia is Free, Google Earth, and Loose Tweets Sink Fleets. The WWIII propaganda poster Loose Tweets Sink Fleets is a “comment on the 2009 Iran election protests. He borrowed the old “loose lips” refrain and replaced it with tweets” (Stokoe, Claire “100 Years of Propaganda” The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”). Another well know poster he has created is Rosie the Redditor, the wrap on her head and label button have been changed to the Reddit Inc. logo. Reddit was founded in 2005 it is and entertainment, social networking, and news website where registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links, making it essentially an online bulletin board system.
Propaganda, in general, is a message designed to persuade its intended audience to think and behave in a certain manner. For instance the Aeneid by Virgil in Ancient Rome and Brian Moore's posters today are considered to be propaganda. Both are examples of control, the Aeneid for Augustus to be praised more and to show Ancient Rome's greatness, and technology taking over such as twitter.
