PostHeaderIcon Chicago History Lesson

Here is a blast from the past. A political cartoon from the Chicago Tribune in 1934 entitled, “Planned Economy or Planned Destruction”:

Those ignorant of history...

Those ignorant of history...

Study it carefully; particularly the “Plan of Action.” History repeats itself; and the Progressives accuse the conservatives of having tired outdated ideas! I just loved the “Young Pinkies from Columbia and Harvard.”  🙂 ◄Dave►

  • History doesn’t repeat itself, it rhymes. The issues of the day are so vastly different, but the problem remains the same: keeping those in power from taking more at our expense. Unfortunately, the one lesson we never seem to learn is that asking the government to fix it only divides the problem into two new problems.

    I don’t see the issues as all that vastly different. Change a few politician names, change the passe term “pinkies” to “Progressives,” and remove the obsolete notion that we had a sound government/economy, and the cartoon would work today as well as it did in ’34.

    I don’t recall anyone asking the government to fix a damn thing. I do recall the government unilaterally proclaiming they would. I, and untold millions like me, have never asked the government to do anything more than defend our borders and our Liberty; and get the hell out of our way so we can live our lives as we choose to live them. ◄Dave►
