After a biblical and historical prologue detailing the evolution of the idea of democracy through the creation, the flood, the crucification of Christ, the discovery of America, the signing of the Decleration of Independence and the Civil War, the present-day threat to this idea by autocratic powers is dramatized. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
