This video from 1971 is a parable about the importance of freedom and democracy, and how easily it can be defiled or lost completely if people do not take care to protect it. Even though the cartoon is over 35 years old, it's message is very relevant to events taking place today.
Uncle Sam On The River
This next video (made in 2006) is a modern take on the same theme. Sort of a sequel, you could say, using headlines from recent events to make it's points.
