"Make Mine Freedom"

Greg Mankiw has a link to some animated Cold War propaganda (in the best sense of the term). Indirect HT Billy Beck.

"Dr Utopia's sensational new discovery, "ISM"! Ism will cure any ailment of the body politic! It's terrific! It's tremendous! Once you swallow the contents of this bottle, you'll have (turning to the working man) the benefits of higher wages, shorter hours, and security. (to the capitalist) E-normous profits! No strikes! (under his breath to the capitalist) Remember, you're the big boss! (To the politician) Government control! No worry about votes! Name your own salary! (To the farmer) Bigger crops! Lower cost! Why, Ism even makes the weather perfect every day!"
