Abstract

John Alford argues that propaganda designed to change so-called "false consciousness" is, in itself, futile and the effectiveness of a propaganda-oriented "correct line" political parties is highly questionable. He offers an alternative which includes breaking down the divisions between intellectual and non-intellectual workers as part of the process of generating organic intellectuals as working class activists who are in touch with everyday concerns of people. This article is based on a paper given at the ALR sponsored Marx Centenary Symposium in Melbourne, April 1983.
