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. Since the beginning of the Communist regime in the Soviet Union, their government has changed their "west friendliness" policy seven times, each time a measured change to reach their goal of global domination. Since that latest change, the end of WWII, steps taken by freedom striving nations, most specifically the United States, are told in combating that goal of Soviet Communist global rule, advancing ...

Very prescient warning from Hollywood past about a real threat of today
I guess if you are a progressive, if you actually believe that our U.S. Constitution is some kind of 'living' document that is outdated and needs to change to adapt to the times and therefore you are against the very Constitution itself and a traitor to it, then you might scoff at this film and dismiss it.
But if you believe in the principles of limited government and strong military to protect us against threats from abroad, and freedom and liberty as laid out in our Constitution, and that as our Constitution states our liberty and rights are granted by God alone and not man, as man can take them away but God won't, then you will know that this prescient warning from Hollywood's past, from a time when Hollywood was still honest and populated with patriots who had fought and defended our great country from external threats, this warning is more relevant today than at any time in our history. Just as this film describes the past attempts of socialist dictators who believe they know better than we do what is good for us, dictators who believe that the limitations placed on our federal government by a wise body of men who understood governmental tyranny more than any others before or since are obsolete, so the past attempts of those traitors to our Constitution to overthrow us both from without and within are mirrored in today's events. Taking advantage of turmoil and disaster to sneak into power and change the rules out from under us.
Yes, this film is practically a precognition of todays' events, with the efforts to destroy all public acknowledgment of God as this film warns against, and the loss of God-given liberty in favor of man-granted privileges. This film could not be more relevant, and the patriots narrating it should be granted Medals of Freedom for their part in this warning. Wake up, America.
