I can’t speak to how THIS lesson was done, but I could put together a very worthwhile one using the identical assignment. “This is how propaganda was done 80 years ago; now that you understand that, your next assignment is to find similar examples that are going on today.”

In high school, I read a rather clunky translation of Mein Kampf
and a rather less clunky translation of The Communist Manifesto. Ran out of time for Das Kapital
The experience left me with zero tolerance for totalitarians, and with absolute contempt for 'useful idiots'.
