A Parable for Our Times

In 1943 Walt Disney turned a 100 year-old fairy tale, "The Remarkable Story of Chicken Little" into a cartoon short. He choose to underplay the fascism reference so it is a useful story for our Trumpism times.

Quotes from the book:
Foxy Loxy reads from a Psychology book. The quotes are drawn from Mein Kampf.
  • To influence the masses, aim first at the least intelligent.
  • If you tell a lie don't tell a little one, tell a big one.
  • Undermine the faith of the masses in their leaders.
  • By the use of flattery insignificant people can be made to look upon themselves as born leaders.
My question, is Donald Trump Foxy Loxy or Chicken Little?

Don't know about The Donald, but Al Gore is certainly both!
