VIDEO: Make Mine Freedom—1940s Propaganda Film

by Nathaniel Downes (first published on Addicting Info)

The 1948 propaganda cartoon film “Make Mine Freedom” viewed almost 70 years on:

Unions have been stripped of power, and now are bordering on collapse. Business managers now are beholden to hedge funds and no longer can run their companies. Politicians are prevented from speaking freely else they are cut off from the campaign contributions required to even run for office. Farmers now cannot store their seed for next year due to corporate patents. [….]

The United States had a fantasy that we were better than other nations. Now, our poverty is crippling. We house more prisoners than any other nation in history. Our police are little more than uniformed thugs with military equipment.
