That was very disturbing.

There are many different wartime cartoons that were produced. No matter how the current day eye and brain consider these, they were a time-appropriate product of what the world was like then. Like them or not, these cartoons are an accurate reflection of our history. War was and still is unpleasant in many ways.

Alfred Hitchcock also a couple of short films regarding Nazis and WW2. They were withheld since the German side was considered as being too smart and challenging - for propaganda purposes.
The Lady Vanishes (a full-length 1938 film) had an humorous pair of British Twits musing along about fair play and good and civil int'l manners, etc.
Some years ago, the short films had turned up for public viewing.

Unfortunately, Irvine is right. All one has to do is look at the Toronto District School Board and/or the Durham School Board in Ontario and see "progressive" social engineering at work. Schools need to stick to the "Three Rs" (we need not go into the obvious about people who cannot communicate, spell correct, do math without an electronic assist, etc.) and leave the teaching of (family) values to parents.
