If you would first like to view an excellent article on propaganda enotes has a great resource at this link.[i] One example of an elite group that used force and propaganda to promote their agenda in the past is the Nazi party in Germany. An excellent German propaganda archive website that has samples of actual propaganda itself and material that was produced for the guidance of propagandists.[ii] An example of their slogans and songs can be accessed through enotes.

I am not clear on what you mean by elite groups, but the Nazis are an excellent example. Currently, there are plenty of conspiracy theories about elitist secret societies that are making decisions that affect all people. The Business Round Table came to mind.
