After reading all of the posts, I can guarentee to everyone, that I'm still absolutely confused as to how to interpret this cartoon.
The first few times that I watched this movie, I got the feeling like the snake oil salesmen was symbolic for the NWO (the bankers/corrupt gov
officials). This made the movie a little more relevant to my own specific beliefs at this point in time.
However, some people state that the snake oil salesmen was just a symbol of communisim (Which is still partially the NWO, mind you) and that this
cartoon was used primarily to encourage capitalism, which has failed. Therefore glorifying this cartoon is basically bringing up a sore spot and the
feeling of 'here we go again' begins.
The more posts that I read, the more it came clear. This cartoon can be interpreted in various ways depending on how you shuffle the symbolic
references around. Therefore, out of an experiment of art. I'm currently reworking the cartoon for a more modern day incarnation.
I haven't decided yet if I plan on re-working or modernizing the imagry while keeping the audio. Or re-working the audio and leaving the video. If
anyone else is interested in making alternative versions of this cartoon, please join me. Regardless of your opinion of it, the important thing is
that it's getting people to discuss the role of the government and the issues at hand.
After showing this video to a few friends, we actually got into a non-confrontational, relaxed and progressive conversation about government roles.
There is something interesting about it's presentation and age that makes it a perfect way to open up the topic of discussion to generally closed
