Until late in the nineteenth century it had been the aim of American policy, and thus its diplomacy, to facilitate the entrance of free immigrants. From the s until World War II —an era of immigration restriction of increasing severity—the diplomacy of immigration was chiefly concerned with the consequences of keeping some people out and, after , when Congress made the diplomatic establishment partially responsible for immigration selection and its control, with keeping some prospective immigrants out. Since , after only seemingly minor changes in policy during World War II , and partly due to the shift in American foreign policy from quasi-isolation to a quest for global leadership and hegemony, immigration policy has become less and less restrictive. Cold War imperatives plus a growing tendency toward more egalitarian attitudes about ethnic and racial minorities contributed to a change in immigration policy.
Mein Kampf[ edit ] Adolf Hitler devoted three chapters of his book Mein Kampf , itself a propaganda tool, to the study and practice of propaganda. Although untrue — German propaganda during World War I was mostly more advanced than that of the British — it became the official truth of Nazi Germany thanks to its reception by Hitler. Assessing his audience, Hitler writes in chapter VI: Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed.
