Schools now teaching Communism over Capitalism in America

The Cold War may be over, but over time, the old Soviet Union may have accomplished part of its goals in the US educational system.  One of the main platforms of Leninism was to not focus on the adult generations, but to take over the schools and indoctrinate the young.

In a school in Des Moines, Iowa, that goal seems to have been achieved as the new curriculum for a Social Studies class not only lays out Capitalism and Communism, but by use of cartoons and NLP, indoctrinates the kids that Communism is a much better and happier economic system than Capitalism.

Using propaganda that could have been disgorged by the KGB, the flier seemed to elevate communism over “capitalism.”
Distributed in Theodore Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, Iowa, the lesson sheet includes a cartoon that purports to illustrate the differences between the two systems. In the left panel are two unhappy-looking workers with balls and chains tied to their ankles who toil away on one side of a machine while all the profit spills out the other side into a bag held by a smiling, stogie-smoking, portly business owner in a hat. It is labeled “Capitalism — In theory.” In the right panel, communism is presented “in theory” with two smiling workers standing relaxed at the same machine while all the profit comes back their way. – The New American

While the cartoon is slightly faded, in the caption for Capitalism it shows workers being held in place by a ball and chain, while the fruits of their labor go into the pocket of the rich.  On the other side, it shows Communism as being a system where workers are happy, and their fruits go towards the people, not the rich.

However... what the propaganda artist failed to draw was the soldiers holding rifles to the heads of the workers in Communism, which is historically correct in every nation that has ever adapted this system.
