So called snake oil salesmen at carnivals are often used as the symbols of hoaxters. There are much more globally sinister hoaxters in the form of world leaders of totalitarian regimes, leaders such as Adolf Hitler, who promised of a bright new world in order to gather support. A longer term hoax than that of Naziism is Communism, the two which, despite being on a different political spectrum, are compared for their ideological similarities, including being anti-religion, being one party systems, advocating violence as a means to an end, and treating their general populace as slaves.

Excellent summary of the history of Communism up to 1953
Some commenters on the left side of the aisle call this film "propaganda;" but being propagandistic doesn't make it false. In fact, the Hoaxters' historical sketch of the rise and various phases of Communism, and its continuing danger to liberty and freedom (as we just saw in Georgia under brutal Soviet -- sorry, Russian occupation), is remarkably accurate, given the constraints of a movie short.
Definitely worth the viewing time for anybody not utterly besotted with the anti-anti-communist propaganda routinely taught in school these days, where kids are told that Joe McCarthy was a greater threat to world peace and liberty than Josef Stalin.
