Cartoon Politics

Watching the feature documentary, The Flaw, by David Sington, I was intrigued by the clips from the capitalist propaganda cartoon made by the U. S.Camber of Commerce in 1954 called, It’s Everybody’s Business. This was at the height of the Cold War and one can’t avoid the comparison with Soviet propaganda of the same period. The truth is there’s nothing in it. Both sides trying to instil in their citizens a belief in and loyalty to, the  prevailing political hegemony.

And then looking round YouTube I found this fabulous answer to, It’s everyone’s Business, in the form of a cartoon imagining of the text of the original Communist Manifesto. It’s fantastic!
