Make Mine Freedom

George Gordon & John Sutherland (1948)

A snake oil salesman tries to sell the American people happiness in exchange for their freedom while one man stands up against him. Sound familiar?

Make Mine Freedom is a 1948 American animated anti-communist propaganda cartoon created by John Sutherland Productions for the Extension Department of Harding College. Financed with a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the cartoon was the first in a series of pro-free enterprise films produced by Sutherland for Harding. The cartoon depicts a satire of perceived life under collectivist ideology.

  1. LOL! Capitalism is also one of those -isms you have to worry about. Not as bad as the alternative, but still a useful servant and a fearsome master.
