    • Controversial Government PR : “The traditional western lobbying mechanism doesn’t work. You cannot really influence the government’s decisions unless you know “the right people.” If you have friends in government, it’s better.”
    • Propaganda Model still employed. “The government at all levels tries to show that it is more open and its actions are more transparent. But this openness is superficial – the government still controls its messages and gives no chance to two-way communication”

    • Messages emotional, appealing “to the soul rather than to the brain” and delivered in person
    • Special “how-to-survive” skills : ability to resist stress, flexibility , patience, ambitions. ! Importance of personal connections !
