Summary
This Prelinger Archives film from 1955 asks young citizens to study the American way of life while opposing communism, socialism, and their propaganda techniques. Dr. Clifton L. Ganus, Jr., an instructor in the National Education Program Workshop at Harding College, speaks in front of a classroom of young people about the importance of free enterprise, the profit motive, and other tenets of conservative economics. Ganus employs simple graphic elements which he manipulates himself--for example, he stacks cardboard bricks labeled with political concepts into a tower, then knocks over the tower to illustrate the vulnerability of American freedom. Other props include a globe used to show how Communism is spreading across the planet. He also engages students in the discussion, and they respond in the same scripted manner of speech used by Ganus.
