Watch a clever cartoon pit Socialism vs Free Enterprise: “Make Mine Freedom” (1948)

We love the vintage John Sutherland cartoons. This latest 10 minute short does a fun job showing what happens when the government takes control of the economy as it implements various stages of socialism instead of free enterprise. It also explains why America has been so wealthy for so long. Although a bit laughable here, there’s nothing funny about the poverty that socialism drives a nation into while its politicians declare it’s the route to wealth and prosperity. Note the date on this film: after 64 years, we are much further down the dark path this cartoon is warning us to avoid. (If you’d like to watch more, see prior posts on “Meet Joe King” and “It’s Everybody’s Business.”)
