Good lord. I can’t believe this thing. The snake-oil salesman even LOOKS like Obama! THIS is what needs to be shown in every school in the country Septmeber 8th!

This should be shown in schools rather than the lies that will be spewed by the One.

Very good. I may be wrong, but the John Q. Public voice sounds like Gary Cooper, rugged individualist that he was.

You think this is really 50 years old, or just made to look that way? Were there freeway cloverleafs 50 years ago, and phrases, “class warfare” and “race hatred”? Maybe; I just don’t know.

Either way, it’s a great lesson!

This is also one all should watch

Charlotte Iserbyt served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, U.S. Department of Education, during the first Reagan Administration, where she first blew the whistle on a major technology initiative which would control curriculum in America’s classrooms.

Saw it a few weeks ago, but I’m glad you reposted it. I had lost the link. Got teenagers coming this weekend. We will definitely add it to our “Zero” discussions.

Thanks.

The elites aligning themselves with the poor and downtrodden to take over countries and rule like a tyrant is as old as mankind ... It takes ignorance to continuously fall for the trap.

And out public school system is there to comply with a prodigious supply of ignorant people.

Thanks for posting it’s a keeper.

Nice cartoon...couple of points. It’s NOT prophetic. It simply shows that we’ve been fighting the same basic battle for many, many years now. Not much has changed. Second, it’s funny watching John Q Public brag about development of business (with smoke stacks in the background) and bragging about how many cars we drive despite our relative resources. Those points are now used as evidence of capitalism’s failure by the enviro crowd, and it is taught to all our kids. Last, capitalism IS an ism.

If it’s not 50 years old I’d be surprised as the nuances are classic of that era.

As someone who grew up in Southern California in the 1950’s I know believe that this cartoon is absolutely authentic. As an aside, my beloved mother-in-law graduated from Harding College in the early 1930’s.

A very fine story. 1948 was my kindergarten year and we had just bought our first TV and growing up in Newark New Jersey suburbs made us the first test market I remember seeing this cartoon movie theater. Another film that I remember being played while in school was by Frank Sinatra the Hoboken Hero!

Enjoy this YouTube film;

I vaguely recall seeing this as a kid on the Willie the Duck morning cartoon show on Channel 11 in Pittsburgh. With a universe of cable channels I’m sure you can find it on your TV now.....NOT!

The cartoon is pro freedom and capitalism, and anti-totalitarianism. I wouldn’t read anything more into it than that.

I like the line (3:08): "Why, Ism even makes the weather perfect every day".

Makes me think about the Global Warming/Climate change movement and cap and trade legislation.
