Even the Russki's can see the deterioration of the USA

Pravda is causing international waves with an opinion piece that nails what is transpiring in
America: the not so slow, ugly transformation into socialism.

Granted, the current day Pravda is more supermarket fare than the traditional Pravda during, say, the Reagan years (Actually, I kinda like those articles about vampires and such). Even so, they oughta know Marxism when they see it.

“First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics.

Then their faith in God was destroyed…

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama.”

Sounds right to me.

If we move the focus of attention to publications here in the good ol' US of A, here's an editorial cartoon from the Chicago Tribune, April 21, 1934 that is quite prophetic.


Explanations for historic refernces made in above cartoon:

Stalin- Joseph Stalin (18 December 1878 – 5 March 1953) was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union’s Central Committee from 1922 until his death in 1953. In the years following Lenin’s death in 1924, he rose to become the leader of the Soviet Union.

Wallace-Henry Agard Wallace (October 7, 1888 – November 18, 1965) was the 33rd Vice President of the United States (1941–1945), the 11th Secretary of Agriculture (1933–1940), and the tenth Secretary of Commerce (1945–1946). During his stay as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture he had to order a very unpopular strategy of slaughtering pigs and plowing up cotton fields in rural America to drive the price of these commodities back up in order to improve American farmers financial situation.

Ickes- Harold LeClair Ickes (March 15, 1874 – February 3, 1952) was a United States administrator and politician. He served as Secretary of the Interior for thirteen years, from 1933 to 1946, making him the longest serving Cabinet officer of any department in U.S. history. Ickes was responsible for implementing much of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal”.

Tugwell- Rexford Guy Tugwell (July 10, 1891 – July 21, 1979) was an agricultural economist who became part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first “Brain Trust,” a group of Columbia academics who helped develop policy recommendations leading up to Roosevelt’s 1932 election as President. Tugwell subsequently served in FDR’s administration for four years and was one of the chief intellectual contributors to his New Deal.

Richberg- Donald Richberg. Head of the National Recovery Administration (NRA) from 1934 - 1935. The NRA, symbolized by the blue eagle, was popular with workers. Businesses that supported the NRA put the symbol in their shop windows and on their packages. Though membership to the NRA was voluntary, businesses that did not display the eagle were very often boycotted–making it seem to many mandatory for survival.
