Another (qualifiedly) cool cartoon



This one is fun. An excellent demonstration of some basic economics. They start to lose me when they get to the part about why we need to pay our taxes, but then they partially redeem themselves by showing why it's bad when taxes get too high. Another minus is a sort of anti-Higgsian move: they show how government increased interference during WWII, but then claim (plainly falsely) that afterwards, all freedoms were restored. All in all though, not bad -- indeed, people today could learn a lot from this. Interesting too was how this same production company seems less sanguine about the role of government in this 1954 film than they did in the ones I blogged yesterday, which were from 1948.
