Made by Encyclopedia Britannica Films in 1946. Not so far away as it seems. There are plenty of people who are very inclined towards submission to authoritarian ideas. If you want to know more go here to learn about it.

Don’t Be a Sucker (1947)

The footage is old, the concepts are older, but they’ve never been more applicable than they are today.
Never forget what it is that makes America great especially as our cultural dialogue focuses and polarizes around race, religion and cultural identity.
SB 1070? 9/11 Mosques? Is Obama a Muslim? Socialist?
Footage dates back to a 1947 documentary entitled Don’t Be A Sucker produced by the US Government. I’ve added the comment at the end and shot the color footage.

Stand up for what is right. Stand up for America!
