This cartoon was in the Chicago Tribune in 1934. Look carefully at the plan of action in the lower left corner. Does any of this look familiar? This cartoon could have been drawn today, just replace some of the names with current elected officials.
"Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it."
Shaddup or I'll whoop you!
Silenced for years; sent to your room. Never speak out, right or wrong, for fear of being punished. Facts don't matter, just do as you're told. Accept things as they are. Don't ever argue with authority. Beaten into submission. Your step-brothers and sisters rat on you for personal gain and favoritism with the drunken, abusive dictator of the house. You watch for years as your own bothers and sisters go through the same abuse as you. Pent up yearning for freedom and justice.
How long until you snap?
