Make Mine Free­dom (1948) — Exten­sion Depart­ment of Hard­ing College

John Q. Pub­lic gives us a his­tor­i­cal and edu­ca­tional out­look on the cap­i­tal­ism and free­dom of the United States of Amer­ica. Car­toon para­ble pre­sent­ing the Amer­i­can sys­tem of gov­ern­ment as the best in the world. “Dr. Utopia,” a snake-oil sales­man of “for­eign” appear­ance, con­vinces Amer­i­cans to drink his quack­ish “ism” for­mula. Cit­i­zens are plunged into a total­i­tar­ian night­mare in which strikes are banned, pri­vate prop­erty is con­fis­cated, and dis­senters are brain­washed. For­tu­nately, “John Q. Pub­lic” takes charge and expels the bad doc­tor from town. Part of the pub­lic rela­tions offen­sive by busi­ness to loosen gov­ern­ment con­trols after World War II.
