1920s and 30s were rich in frauds and flimflam men offering quick cures for social ills — using new media like radio and movies to peddle their ideas and win followers. Especially during the Depression, extreme ideologies and demagogues competed for support: communism, fascism, Social Credit, fundamentalist Christianity.

Thanks. God bless.
