Note where the snake oil salesman tells the legislator he can vote his own pay increases.

I was born about the time this short film was produced.
My father was in the USAF and did a tour of duty in Germany during the Berlin Airlift.
I remember seeing, on TV, the Berlin Wall being erected (and, of course, torn down).
When in high school we learned about Berliners "voting with their feet".

In the '80s I stood in West German near a sign warning me (in three languages) not to try to cross the open free fire zone to the east because to try was fatal. It was probably a minefield and there were concrete gun towers visible about every few hundred meters.
