Submission + - Civil Defense Posters In The Age of Cyber War (

chicksdaddy writes: "During World War II, the U.S. government used propaganda to shape behavior and attitudes on the home front and the front lines. Posters and advertisements encouraged citizens who couldn’t don a uniform to support the war effort by planting victory gardens or collecting scrap, while slogans like “Loose Lips Sink Ships” and "When you Ride Alone You Ride with Hitler" promoted mindfulness of foreign espionage and personal sacrifice.

These days, the threat is cyber war and cyber espionage, and Uncle Sam is going back to tried and true methods it perfected during past conflicts to educate the public and the armed services about the threat. This slide show from Security Ledger brings together images from then and now, highlighting some recent public service posters from the U.S. Government’s Office of the Counterintelligence Executive."
