While mass media targets the individual in short-term intervals, the overall influence on them has been established as the consumer moves from one impressionable age category to another.

The newspaper developed around 1600 A.D., but it took this form of mass media more than a century to influence the masses directly.

From all the discussed above a fair question comes up: Is culture jamming itself just another form of propaganda? The previous question is immediately followed by the next: If it is not, is it effective? Some culture jammers intent to make people more conscious of the influence of marketing and advertising – and then foster activism out of that growing awareness. The culture jammers that belong to this group either perform art for hearts sake, thus not aiming at mass acceptance and simply expressing the disparate mood of the consumerist generation; the second portion are the mass-oriented idea promoters, which either do it for the purpose of good will or for a certain purpose. To answer, the first question, culture jamming surely can be (although not obligatory) a certain kind of propaganda. Culture Jamming also bears a strong ideological load, a certain commitment of the temper of resistance-culture. Moreover, culture jamming intents to persuade. From this point of view, one can propose that culture jamming becomes a propaganda when it has an intensified character and does not reflect the reality which it comments on (i.e., its critique is based on invalid facts). However, we do not see the overflow of culture jamming in the Media. Therefore, it is not in the mainstream, but the countermovement providing critique on that mainstream. Culture jamming, predominately, is also the work of single artists or small groups of individuals, and is not empowered or sponsored by the “people and organizations at power”. That is why I would disagree that culture jamming is propaganda in the majority of cases. What concerns the effectiveness of the culture jamming, I would be less optimistic here. The culture jamming did not grow into a consequent and organized mass movement until now, which is able to bring some positive change. The problems it indicates are not solved, and some of them are even getting worse. Perhaps, the presence of the culture jammers that is, however, not strong enough to bring change is even beneficial for the corporations and people at power. The presence of critique indicates that there is freedom and democracy in this country and calms down the people, and the inability of critics to make change secures the position of the Media controllers. So, culture jamming is not very effective until now. Anyway, culture jamming provides alternative ideas, and is not it ideas that gradually change the world?
