There is no generally accepted definition of “public opinion.” Nevertheless, the term has been employed with increasing frequency since it came into popular usage at the time of the French Revolution, when Louis xvi’s finance minister, Jacques Necker, referred to public opinion as governing the behavior of investors in the Paris money market. Later efforts to define the term precisely have led to such expressions of frustration as: “Public opinion is not the name of a something, but a classification of a number of somethings.” (See Childs 1965, pp. 12-28, for some fifty different definitions.)

In spite of differences in definition, students of public opinion generally agree at least that it is a collection of individual opinions on an issue of public interest, and they usually note that these opinions can exercise influence over individual behavior, group behavior, and government policy. Because public opinion is acknowledged to play a role in several diverse areas, leading writers on the subject have included sociologists (Tonnies 1887; Lazarsfeld et al. 1944; Albig 1956), political theorists (Bryce 1888; Lasswell 1927; Lippmann 1922), social psychologists (Allport 1937; Cantril 1966), and historians (Bauer 1929). Those who are engaged in manipulating public opinion have also made important contributions: for example, politicians (Lenin 1929) and public-relations specialists (Bernays 1923). Differences in definition and approach can be accounted for largely by the differing interests of various categories of students and practitioners.

    Read the question you wrote. Before one can write an essay on anything, one most actually know how to write.

    Writing an essay on one of the argumentative essay topics requires to be well armed with strong and convincing arguments concerning one of the chosen topics for a argumentation essay. Your personal position and insight should of course be the basis of your work, but the main point is that your personal views have to be supported by founded arguments, reasons, proofs and evidences and proceed from the factual information.

    Hence, your work should bristle with clearly-cut and legible arguments to look like a real argumentative essay. The arguments are the facts or statements which will support your position.

    Ever since mass media became mass media, companies have naturally used this means of communications to let a large number of people know about their products. There is nothing wrong with that, as it allows innovative ideas and concepts to be shared with others. However, as the years have progressed, the sophistication of advertising methods and techniques has advanced, enticing and shaping and even creating consumerism and needs where there has been none before, or turning luxuries into necessities. This section introduces some of the issues and concerns this raises.

    Various free media such as the numerous channels available in America and other nations are naturally subsidized with advertising to help pay the costs.

    HI April, Daily non-smokers are subjected to the hazards of secondhand smoke. Whose rights are actually being infringed upon when smoking is allowed in public areas? We currently have many laws on the books which are intended to protect our citizens, why is it then we are still waiting for a commonsense law about the air we breathe. Drinking alcohol is not illegal, until someone takes actions which would endanger someone else. So why are we not seeing the same attitude towards something which causes just as many if not more deaths in a years time. Certainly as Americans we should be able to conduct our daily activities without the fear of exposure to toxins which are proven to cause cancers and promote heart disease.
