Are “Hearts and Minds” Campaigns Obsolete?
I have a question I’d like to put on the floor. Doesn’t a “hearts and minds campaign” require some level of control over the message? In the modern day when just about any bozo with an Internet connection can put just about anything that he or she cares to up for all the world to see and there are social media capable of spreading the word of its existence to a billion people in milliseconds is it possible to have that level of control?
