Friday Fun – America Under Socialism
We’re back with a new entry for our Friday Fun series looking at politically charged historical comic books. We felt today’s was appropriate considering the hysteria and fear that America is turning towards Socialism.
America Under Socialism! was produced in 1950 and only around 10 or so copies are known to still be in existence. It warns how great societies have collapsed under Socialism, like Rome and also warns Britain will collapse as well. The issue here is being Britain seems to be going strong about 60 years after this comic was published.
We’re of course warned of medical services for all, the dangers of minimum wages and strikes, and that Capitalists are the enemy. Very humorous seeing where deregulation has gotten us over this past decade or so.
There’s so many things wrong with this comic I don’t even know where to begin. Check out some examples and then below for a link to the entire comic.
