I don’t like to get political on this blog or anywhere else on the Internet. It’s not that I’m afraid to talk about politics. It’s just that I think other people do the politics stuff better than I ever could, and I’d rather focus my time online talking about other things. Mostly outer space stuff. Sometimes also dinosaur stuff.
But recently, I came across a video that I really, really, really wanted to share. You see, I’ve been working on the next Tomorrow News Network novella, and a big part of my research for the next T.N.N. novella involves learning more about post-World War II era America. Mind you: not the stereotypes about post-war America, but the reality—both the good and the bad.
In the course of my research, I came across this P.S.A. from 1947 entitled “Don’t Be a Sucker (for Fascism).” And I was shocked—absolutely shocked—by how relevant this 1947 P.S.A. is to the world we live in today. So if you have seventeen minutes to spare today, please check out this video. I think you’ll find it is well worth your time.
And remember: don’t gamble with the liberties of others. If you do, you may find your own liberties being taken away as well.
P.S.: And if you haven’t already, go vote!!!
