How quickly people will give up their freedoms today for the illusion of security, and the false hope of prosperity through government control. The point that this cartoon seems to be making, is beware of any individual, organization, or administration that attempts to escalate class, or race warfare to divide the country and make socialism appear to be the only solution. We will always have our differences, but putting the government in charge of everything, and surrendering person freedom is not the solution.
This cartoon is timeless and is just as true today as it was in 1948! Obama's Socialism is a Worry.
