Cold War Values

DEMOCRACY
  • Form of government by the people in which
    citizens choose who will govern them
  • Two types direct and representative (indirect)

4
DEMOCRACY
  • BEST FORM OF GOVERNMENT
  • MAJORITY RULE
  • TRUE DEMOCRACY CAN ONLY BE SECURED IN AN
    ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT REWARDS EVERYONE EQUALLY

5
EQUALITY
  • Condition of being equal
  • Three ways
  • Equality of opportunity
  • Equality before the law
  • Equality of condition

6
EQUALITY
  • Equality of condition is essential
  • Society must share material wealth to ensure that
    no one has an unfair advantage over another
  • Equality of opportunity and equality before the
    law are necessary for healthy society, but
    equality of condition is not.

7
CAPITALISM
  • Private ownership of industry and property
  • Laissez-faire relationship between government and
    business
  • Operates according to laws of supply and demand
  • Profit is driving factor

8
CAPITALISM
  • Capitalism is evil, allowing the haves to prey on
    the have-nots, creating a permanent underclass.
  • It breeds selfishness and undermines cooperation
    and community.
  • Capitalism provides the opportunity for
    individuals to better themselves through hard
    work and initiative.
  • Competition creates better goods at lower prices.

9
INDIVIDUALISM
  • The belief that people working on their own to
    reach their highest level of achievement produces
    the best results for individuals and for society.

10
INDIVIDUALISM
  • Outcome of a persons life is based on inner
    character and fortitude.
  • All of society benefits if individuals reach
    their highest level of achievement.
  • Competition strengthens society.
  • Society built on individualism creates some
    winners but many losers.
  • Individualism in society leads to inequality and
    exploitation with winners taking advantage of
    losers.

11
COLLECTIVISM
  • People working together produce better results
    for individuals and society than people working
    on their own.

12
COLLECTIVISM
  • Collectivism violates basic human nature which is
    competitive.
  • Collective ownership of land or industry violates
    the right to property.
  • The only way to create fairness in society is for
    everyone to share in ownership.
  • Collectivism allows the fruits of labor to be
    equally distributed among all.

13
SOCIALISM
  • Stresses government ownership of industry,
    economic equality, and a classless society
  • Based on government control of the means and
    profits of production

14
SOCIALISM
  • Government ownership of property allows for equal
    distribution of wealth.
  • Shared ownership prevents the abuses of
    capitalism and exploitation.
  • The right to own property is one of mans most
    basic rights.
  • Socialism inhibits individuals desire and
    ability to achieve betterment for themselves and
    society.

15
TOTALITARIANISM
  • Government in which one or a few people totally
    control entire population
  • Freedom of speech, press, religion, assembly and
    right of opposition are denied

16
TOTALITARIANISM
  • Totalitarianism threatens basic human rights like
    free speech, free press and freedom of religion.
  • Healthy society only exists when people freely
    express their views.
  • Totalitarianism is necessary to transition from
    unequal society to truly equal socialist society.
  • Strong government is needed to protect the
    peoples interest against greed and selfishness.

17
FREEDOM
  • Condition of being free to express or do what one
    pleases

18
FREEDOM
  • People are not free unless they share wealth
    equally.
  • Government control of press and industry are
    necessary to keep capitalists from exploiting
    workers.
  • Freedom is at core of happy and productive
    society.

Johnson's Daisy Nuclear Countdown Lyndon B.
Johnson's "Daisy" nuclear countdown ad was one of
the most controversial political advertisements
ever made. It showed a little girl (Birgitte
Olsen) picking the petals off a daisy while
incorrectly counting each one until a man
interrupts her with the countdown of a missile
launch followed by a mushroom cloud from a
nuclear explosion. It was aired only once, on
September 7, 1964.
