The secret of American prosperity

This cartoon from 1948, encapsulates the reason why the American system is so prosperous. Most importantly, it tells us to beware of a smooth talker trying to sell a fantasy that is really a nightmare.

I've seen that cartoon before, but it can never be shown too often or too widely.

Observe, too, how intelligent it is - how it gets to the essence of things in a very straightforward, easy to understand way, even though it deals with broad abstractions.

Even the best of the Tea Party-oriented ads don't come close today, a measure of how far education has fallen in the past 60 years.

Thanks for posting that.
