In 1948, as part of an anti-communism/socialism campaign, Harding College (now Harding University) produced a 10-minute cartoon titled, “Make Mine Freedom.”1 Its message, however, is just as applicable to America in 2013 as it was when it first aired 65 years ago.

Most recently, “Ism” has been repackaged as “hope and change”…but it’s all the same dangerous elixir.

(Worth noting is the irony of the characters proudly marching by the Lincoln Memorial as they wave flags in a small parade at the end of the show.  All past and present “isms” in America today can be traced, to one degree or another, back to Lincoln’s own statist policies.)
