¡Viva La Capitalism!

I like politics, I loooove capitalism! Probably just as much as I love advertising. I thought of something this week that made me laugh a bit–Lawyers are people in the profession of promoting and practicing LAW. Advertisers are people in the profession of promoting and practicing CAPITALISM. –or something like that…

I’m taking John Brumsfeld’s Advertising and Propaganda class this term (which I highly, highly recommend for academics). So with that in mind, I came across this old cartoon from the 1940s propagating capitalism and bashing communism (or “ISM”) with the USA’s very own John Q. Public (remember him?) Keep in mind, there is a shit storm of rhetoric and stereotypes in the piece, so take the message with a grain of salt. After all, no need for the Democrats in the house to get all offended an’ shit! hahaha
