    The concept itself.

    But also realizing how many of these ‘toons had some amount of political “speak” in them. I remembered a fair number of these from my youth, in the sixties. After giving it some more thought, I can think of a few others that were just as politically oriented.

    Therefore…interesting.

    Yes, that’s a pretty interesting approach they took to making the video.

    Anyone know of a similar effort made for any other ideology or influential political book that forms a kind of manifesto of one?

    Just a comment, I don’t think this video was put out by the FSP themselves. It’s been floating around the internet and the left for a while.
