Project Brainstorm was a project developed by the pre-war U.S. military at the Pentagon. Its overall objective was to 'brainstorm' the american people in order to get increased political support for the Great War.
Induced Patriotism Initiative
The Induced Patriotism Initiative was the so-called "flagship" of Project Brainstorm. Its goal was to 'induce patriotism' as part of the 'brainstorming' of the americans. This usually took the form of "overt and covert messages of extreme patriotism and loyalty", planted by anonymous 'agents' into "popular media to the big screen to the Sunday funnies." Other areas of influence included the music industry, organized sports, toys and comics, the latter which got the name "Tales from the Front".
