Only the lie needs "Propaganda;" the TRUTH can stand alone

"Stalin used the slogan "2+2=5" as a symbol for his idea that the Soviet Union would complete a five-year plan in four years. This is a tongue-in-cheek example of the power of propaganda. In countries with an oppressive regime, such as Stalin's Soviet empire, propaganda becomes necessary to promote the regime's ideology while suppressing subversives. When such regimes become very powerful, they can use propaganda to create truth, or the appearance of truth."
