You’re already being subjected to it.
Before you go “well I’m well informed and propaganda won’t work on me,” you should take a step back and think about the scope of the CA/FB leaks. Millions on millions of data points. They may not know you, but they’ve studied enough people like you to know what makes you angry, what messages you’ll amplify without question, and what excites you.
The messaging they push on you isn’t necessarily even intended for you. It’s about getting you to share not just ideas and facts, but specific framing and narratives they want you to advance. Even if the information can be determined to be false, the framing often remains. The “both sides” framing of 2016 is a classic example of this, a message they knew wasn’t necessarily going to keep Sanders voters home or make them vote for Trump but instead would be heard by less engaged people to make them feel their vote wouldn’t make a difference.
They don’t favor or push a particular candidate because they inherently agree with them, they do these things to sow division and chaos. So think about the narratives that something pushes, and remember that no matter our differences on the left we generally want the same things but have different strategies to get there. Just because someone disagrees with a certain approach doesn’t mean they’re acting in bad faith.
