Video: 50 Year Old Cartoon - Capitalism vs Statism

Twitter proves it's value as you click through people's Tweets.

I clicked on something left by Bob Schaffer - a 9 minute cartoon made some 50 years ago at Harding College to distinguish between statism and capitalism. Do watch this.

Here is the intro at YouTube:

"Make Mine Freedom" delivers a vitally important message. Produced in 1948, at the beginning of the Cold War, it underscores how utopian fantasies can lead to extreme forms of statism. Exposing the poisonous effects of collectivism and its appealing philosophy, this animated short film explains why American free enterprise is the antidote to the tyranny of the government-issued "-ism."

Go watch it:

Watch it and comment!
