Healthy dose of American propaganda there. Made in 1948?
"We're the richest country in the world...because we annihilated all of Europe!"
"We have more cars than anyone else...because Europeans use public transportation and the war destroyed their economies."
"We have more graduates than any other nation...because we nuked Japan and the rest of the western world is still rebuilding after the war."
For playing such a large part in WW2 we came out pretty well. Not to mention the concept for Ike's national highway system came from Hitler's
autobahn. How our economy was in shambles before the war and the advent of the military-industrial complex propped us up during and after the war.
Cartoons from the 30's and 40's were filled with propaganda. Donald Duck Hitler is one of my favorites. Beyond that though, I don't think a 60 year
old cartoon is very relevant today, it's just playing off the old fears of communism. Ooo...scary commies.
