Great little cartoon.

I especially like the complainer in the concentration camp who becomes the broken record, "Everything is alright, everything is alright, everything is..."

Great find! The short speaks to many of the same concerns that we still have today about the assaults on our freedoms. The worry specifically expressed seemed to be communISM, while today's concern is more fascISM.

One fault I see is that the film castigates ISMs generally, but propounds (correctly so) capitalISM. Not all ISMs are anti-Liberty, and the Liberty yardstick is the one we should apply when judging an ISM.
