Blaze reader asks: Have we really learned our lesson?


Blaze readers Ed and Leza shared this political cartoon with us and noted how little has changed since it was originally published in the Chicago Tribune in 1934:

Stalin was well established in power by 1934, and the figure in the lower left-hand corner appears to be Leon Trotsky. Harold Ickes (pictured center) served as Secretary of the Interior under FDR starting in 1933. Rexford Tugwell (the guy on the horse) was a Columbia academic and key advisor.  Henry Wallace served in FDR's cabinet and later as vice president as a candidate of the Progressive Party is seen holding a shovel.  And Donald Richberg was general counsel and executive director of FDR's National Recovery Administration.

The artist was Pulitzer Prize winner Carey Orr who drew political cartoons for the Tribune at the time.
