Good film. Today it would be labeled as left wing.

Amazing find. As usual.How DO you do it? (and stay sane?)

Great clip. Notice during the pledge they don't say "under god"? I hope you get hired to do commentary on some semi or mainstream media outlet Driftglass. You deserve it.

Really great find, DG. Nothing we're seeing today is really new is it.

I can't remember where I first saw this video, but this is another good one, from 1947.

It's about Fascism, and man is it still extremely timely and relevant.
