20:26 Bob Perry talks about Vietnam and Communism and astrology. He talks about how to influence a population through white and black propoganda, which appear to be good and bad propoganda. Phone rings and we cut. Then he talks about Nicaragua and how to influence the public to support or dislike a leader. He talks about Vietnam syndrome and the elimination of it under Reagan’s administration. This syndrome is a tendency to not support wars because Americans think that the same thing will happen as in Vietnam. He claims that the government gathered support for Reagan’s activities in South America by not allowing negative press, through getting reporters and journalists fired or reassigned. Talks for a long time about the situation in Nicaragua.

44:40 Perry returns and talks further about how politicians will inevitably make certain mistakes and if their opponents know how to ridicule them, their careers can be effectively ruined. He says on the converse, that if no one is there to seize on your mistakes, you can really make as many as you want to without any trouble.
