Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, Iowa

Roosevelt High School is inducted into our Hall of Shame for distributing a flyer to students studying the history of the Cold War that praises Communism and disparages Capitalism. Click on graphic to enlarge. The CAPITALISM side of the flyer shows workers in tattered clothing, chained to a machine that delivers all of the money produced to a cigar-smoking man who is also much better dressed. Over on the COMMUNISM side, there is no boss and the smiling workers are better dressed, don't have chains on their legs and the money goes back to them The narrative that went with this cartoon states: Communism stands for equal sharing of the work according to the benefits and ability. But in Capitalism an individual is responsible for his works and if he wants to raise the ladder, he has to work hard. While the profit of any enterprise is equally shared by all in Communism, the profit in the Capitalist structure belongs to the private owner only.
