    Secrets of Body Language and the propaganda

    From ancient times on wards media is a powerful instrument to project a Leader in an appealing way to the people. Body Language is the main aspect of a Leader when he presents himself in front of people or media.
    Walking style, the confidence in the looks, the way one talks on critical issues and the dominance a Leader shows when he is in a group of people are very important.

    To win the peoples support a Leader must always present himself in a right way.

    The following video shows some of the secrets of the body language and how various leaders present themselves in front of people and media.




    Napoleon is a master of propaganda and he realized that through media he can project himself as an invincible leader, during his reign he used print media and painting for propaganda. During the invasion of Austria Napoleon traveled on a mule through the mountains but when we look at this incident we will see the below painting associated with this event.

    Napoleon on a white horse charging through the mountains .... But actually he traveled calmly through the mountains on a mule.

    This picture appeals to the french people who celebrated every victory of their emperor in Paris with Joy. Napoleon created a powerful image of him on the hearts and minds of the people using paintings and style of his own so much that even today if people see a person putting his hand his coat they will quickly recognize it as a Napolean Bonaparte style.

    If we see the recent incidents in Asia Pacific during US secretary of defense Chuck hagel visit

    The below pic shows the meeting between his Japanese counter part Itsunori Onodera where US gave assurances about the alliance and defence co operation between US and Japan.

    The Japanese counter part is low on confidence and is like seeking support of USA. Where as Chuck Hagel is looking confident and looking like he is giving assurances to Japanese.

    Here the media is portraying Japan as a country in need of USA's backing to defend against Chinese aggression through pictures.

    The below pic is Chuck Hagels visit of China

    If we look at the Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan's expression and his pose he looks like dominating the picture and is also making hand gestures.
    Where as Chuck Hegel looks dejected and looks as if Chinese defense minister is disagreeing with USA and are ready to bully small nations.
